In just four weeks we will be in our run of the last play of the 2018-19 season, Take Away The Lady and that means we will be building our set for our final technical and dress rehearsals in just 21 days time.
I can assure you that the hearts of the cast reading this will have just skipped a beat and tummies had a quick tumble at the realisation. All part of the fun we put ourselves up for.
It also means that tickets are selling and if you haven’t reserved your seats already then it is time to do so through our normal routes, link below. We did have a glitch with our email address recently but that is all working again and accepting messages. Apologies to anyone affected by the recent problems.
Always trying to bring a different mix to our plays, we are ending the season by moving away from the usual comedies and into a straight whodunnit play by Jimmie Chinn. We previously performed his ‘Sylvia’s Wedding’ a bitter sweet story with humour. This play, however focusses upon the unexpected return of Matthew from prison, where he was serving a sentence for the murder of his mother, to the family home, where the family gathers and are faced with his claim of innocence and the inevitable question – if Matthew really didn’t kill Mother, who did?

TATL? Take Away the Lady of course, our next production which is now picking up momentum and our Monday night rehearsal is under way at this moment.
Last week we showed you the poster that is now in circulation, this week a few photos from rehearsals. It is a timely reminder that Tickets are for sale and the advantage of reserving your seats now is that you are more likely to obtain your preferred night and seating positions, especially for groups of four or more.
Take Away The Lady by Jimmie Chinn is a whodunnit and you can read about it here and reserve your tickets at the link here
Yes, here we go again. Rehearsals for our final play of the 2018-2019 season began a couple of weeks ago with our cast working through the initial blocking. Now the hard work begins.
We like to mix our styles and give you different plays and Take Away The Lady follows on from our more modern and earthy performance of Double Top with this, a ‘play of suspense’, a whodunnit by Jimmy Chinn. Set somewhere around the 1950s, The Doubletree family gather for a surprise visit, one that raises questions about the death of their mother some 15 years ago.
You can read more about the play and also get in early with your ticket reservations by following these links;
Come and join Kath and her mates down at the ‘White Hart’ (aka the Village Hall in Brough) and follow them on their journey of life, loves, troubles and darts.
Yes, this weekend we managed to complete the stage set for this wonderful play and we can tease you with a glimpse of what is to come. We now run our final Technical and Dress Rehearsals and then go live to the public for three nights only – this Thursday, Friday, Saturday (24, 25, 26 January) Tickets are still available. Don’t miss your chance.
DOUBLE TOP by Ron Rose (contains adult themes and some strong language and a lot of laughs!)
