Memory of Water Cast Rehearsing

The Memory of Water

A massive 'congratulations' to the cast, crew and FoH volunteers of our recent production, The Memory of Water.  This wonderfully funny and deeply felt play had our audiences both laughing and crying!

Of course, it wouldn't have been quite as successful it weren't for the many members who came to watch and support the show.  Thank you!

Planning of our next production is well underway. However, we are yet to find a Stage Manager to join the team - preferably someone with plenty of experience as you will be coordinating two highly technical one act plays.  This may also be a good opportunity for anyone with less experience to learn Stage Management by shadowing as Deputy SM, since there will be plenty to do!

If this is something that interests you, please get in touch ASAP.

Reading - Tomorrow, Monday 19th March - 19:30

We will be starting at 7:30pm sharp to make sure there is time to fit both plays in.
Please try to arrive at the Joan Cross Lounge a few minutes early.

Auditions - Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd March - 19:30

We will be auditioning for both plays, both nights. There will only be time to audition for one character per play, but you are welcome to be considered for as many roles as you would like. Audition pieces will be made available on the night. If you wish to be considered but cannot make either audition night, please get in touch asap.

For more information and a brief overview of each play, please checkout our website.


Our 59th Annual General Meeting

Tuesday 10th April 2018 - 7.30pm
Joan Cross Lounge of the Playhouse Theatre

The 59th AGM of the Playhouse Company is to be held on Tuesday 10th April 2018 in the Joan Cross Lounge.  The AGM is an opportunity to look back on the last 12 months, discuss topics raised and to elect your committee.

There are 4 vacancies on the committee this year.  Whist some experience in finance is very desirable for the vacant Treasurer role, no specific experience is required for the remaining, more general vacancies: we value having a diverse committee.  Please do consider standing and putting yourself forward for nomination - don’t be shy!

Nominations should be made to the Secretary / Chair, preferably by Tuesday 20th March 2018, but not later than Friday 30th March 2018.  Please use the forms included in the formal notice to members which has been sent separately, or get in touch.

If your membership has lapsed, you will be required to pay your membership fee at the door to make sure you have a vote. As an added incentive, a light buffet will be provided as usual.  We look forward to seeing you there!
