It will come as no surprise that we must reluctantly announce the postponement of our next production, FlatSpin, which was due to be performed at the end of April.
At our final rehearsal yesterday the Production team discussed the latest guidelines and projected situation over the next few weeks and we realised we would be unable to sustain future rehearsal meetings and all the play preparation required. It was also evident that it would be irresponsible to go ahead with performance nights to local audiences.
We have therefore decided to cancel the performances on 30th April, 1st and 2nd May. It is our current intention, if circumstances allow, to reschedule this production as our first play of next season at the end of October.

Our Club and Ticket Secretaries, Dianne and Steve Turner will be in touch to confirm with those who have already reserved tickets and to those who have purchased season tickets.
Obviously everyone is disappointed, when we have been putting so much effort towards this play and looking forward to performing it. However, the decision was clear and we can at least (hopefully) look forward to resuming from where we left off later this summer.
Interestingly this is only the third time in our history, since 1961, that we have been unable to put on three plays in a season. The first was a performance of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit in the early years, and the group had to stop performing in 1991/2 due to electrical refurbishment at the Village Hall.
We look forward to announcing a new season including FlatSpin later this summer. Meanwhile follow us for updates and articles and we wish you all good health and a safe passage through the next few difficult weeks.
