Coming soon…

Our first play is already in rehearsal.   Here’s a little bit about it…

GENERATIONS APART  by Peter Gordon

October 26th, 27th, 28th 2017

We start our season with a lovely warm-humoured and sentimental comedy from the always popular Peter Gordon.

Having met Anne at the 1969 Isle of Wight music festival, Paul decides to run off with her to a mainland commune, leaving behind his conservative life on the island. However when his family circumstances change, he is forced to rethink his options. Many years later, a chance encounter with Anne’s daughter leads Paul back in to the past. A must for all who remember the heady days of the hippy!

Directed by Richard Bateman

Cast includes:  Steve Howland, Tom Fryer, Rachel Miller, Jayne Hewson, Wyn Price, Janet Drewery

The Season Finale

It was our final episode of The Hallelujah Girls last Saturday which also means it was the Season Finale for the Petuaria Players 2016/2017 programme.  Another three plays produced and now our viewers will just have to wait until October for Season 57.

Meanwhile the Players are taking a welcome few days rest before the process of reading potential plays for next year begins.  We will be continuing to post here with updates and information about the Petuaria Players so keep checking back – or better still why not register your email to get our latest posts straight to your inbox.

Georgia on my mind..

An old abandoned church in Eden Falls in the state of Georgia – also known as the Ellloughton-Brough Village Hall stage – is ready to receive The Hallelujah Girls.

The cast have just finished dress rehearsal and are rarin’ to go.  Visit the Spa-Dee-Dah! for your relaxing facial as you stretch those laughter lines,  have yourself a massage of  therapeutic laughter and bathe in a warm glow of fun provided by the Petuaria Players.

Post play chat on stage with the Producer 

This Thursday, Friday, Saturday 27th, 28th, 29th April.

Building The Set

 

Hi y’all. Yes The Hallelujah Girls (and boys) had their very first chance this Sunday to do some rehearsal work on the stage.  We have had a busy few days doing our usual intensive labour of love in building the set, the tiers and seating, preparing the props, setting lighting and sound.

Now we are ready to run the play on stage with our Technical and Dress rehearsals before we get to perform for you starting this Thursday the 27th.

Still some seats left for another evening of value-for-money live entertainment.

The Hallelujah Girls tells the hilarious story of a group of women who, realising that time is precious following the loss of a dear friend, turn an abandoned church into a spa and beauty salon: Spa-Dee-Dah! But Sugar-Lee, their high spirited, determined leader, has her hands full keeping the women motivated and coping with obstacles arising from both the present and the past…
