FlatSpin poster launched

It’s back to normal as we send our latest poster off to the printers. And it is time to share it online too.

All the details are there to make your ticket reservations but you can also go to our Bookings page or read a synopsis of the play in our What’s On page.


Box Office open for FlatSpin

Yes, just over six weeks to our first opening night in two years. Rehearsals are well underway but once all the cast read this it is certain that hearts will skip a beat at the realisation that we must be ready in five weeks for set build and dress rehearsals.

It also means that tickets are now on sale!

Nothing has changed on the booking process – you can phone or email to reserve your seats for your preferred night. All we ask is that you bring the correct change to pay on the night if possible and that should you be unable to make it once booked, please let us know so that we can sell the seat.

Booking information can be found on our page here.

After the health restrictions of the last two years we expect to be operating normally with our usual seating plan. Our procedures for performance nights will be reviewed as we get closer to the event.

FlatSpin by Alan Ayckbourn – April 28, 29, 30

A night of romance in her luxurious riverside apartment with the good-looking stranger from next door; How can Joanna possibly go wrong? Except the flat isn’t hers, her name is not Joanna, it’s Rosie (she’s an actress), and heaven knows what the good-looking stranger is really after. Instead of romance comes considerable danger…..Rosie’s only way out is to play the role to the end.

Book now to reserve your preferred seats.


Business as usual?

Finally. At last. Two years later. The Petuaria Players are back. Last night saw the first official rehearsal with part of the cast of Flatspin as we now resume our activities with scheduled performance dates starting on the 28th April.

Of course, it is all arms innoculated and fingers crossed that nothing gets in the way of this, our second attempt to put on this play, having had to cancel our programme in early 2020.

It was certainly a good atmosphere as we resurrected our old scripts and attempted to remember and decipher our pencilled hieroglyphics in the margins.

So with 64 days to go to our first night follow us on here to keep up to date with progress and announcements – including ordering tickets as we open up the box office – details in our next post.

The Petuaria Players will return in 2022

Yes, it’s true. At last. We will be treading those boards once again and welcoming our audiences to live local theatre. So many people have been stopping members to ask – when is the next play? Well we have the answers – read on.

Recently the membership gathered together at The Forum for the first time since March 2020 for our much delayed Annual / Extraordinary General Meeting. One thing was clear – everyone was keen to get back to the stage. The sensible approach would be to wait until after Christmas and the New Year before embarking on a renewed schedule of meetings and rehearsals for a play.

Back at The Forum again

We also agreed that the most sensible choice of play to kick off our return would be Alan Ayckbourn’s FlatSpin. This was the play that was originally scheduled for April 2020, one which we had already been rehearsing and preparing for. It would be a good way of easing our way back in and, having been semi-rehearsed already, more able to cope with any unforeseen circumstances that this winter might still throw at us.

With some necessary casting changes agreed, a renewed performance licence obtained and dates booked at the Elloughton-Brough Village Hall we find ourselves in the position of having at last a plan for our return.

Make sure you have the dates 28th, 29th, 30th April marked in your calendars as tickets are sure to be in demand when we open the box office (probably in the New Year).

Ensure you are subscribed to this website or to our Facebook page for more updates. We look forward to seeing you all in 2022.
