PLAYS FOR 2019-2020 ANNOUNCED

During our summer break we were busy reading through potential scripts, juggling actor availability for casting and obtaining the licences. So we are excited that we can now announce our programme for this coming year –

PASSING STRANGERS - a comedy by Eric Chappell
October 24th, 25th, 26th 2019
'Fickle thing, memory". Malcolm discovers how true his words are when he takes his unhappy and discarded friend, Clive, to a Singles' Evening. There they meet two recent divorcees; the upwardly-mobile Julie and the cynical, defiant Liz.
SAY IT WITH FLOWERS - a comedy by Jane Thornton
January 30th, 31st, February 1st 2020
When an amateur drama group realise they have nowhere to perform after they are forced to abandon the Parish Hall they turn their artistic talents to the regional 'Village in Bloom' competition. But that is where the tensions begin.
FLATSPIN - a comedy by Alan Ayckbourn
April 30th, May 1st, 2nd 2020
When aspiring actress Rosie is asked to fill in for her uncle by servicing apartments in Docklands, she decides to spice up her day by pretending to be an absent tenant. But her passionate tryst with neighbour Sam turns into something sinister when she discovers that the flat, and Sam, are not quite what they seem.

Rehearsals have already started for Passing Strangers and we will tell you a little more about the plays in future posts.

TATL Gallery photos

Yes, thanks to Dave Hackett and his trusty camera during dress rehearsals we have a selection of the photos to show you from our last production, ‘Take Away The Lady’ by Jimmie Chinn.

No jaw dropping action here, no fights, arguments or slapstick disasters simply the wonderful illustration of a murder mystery unfolding in a fifties household….

All our recent play galleries can also be found under the menu tab Photo Gallery.

We are resting….

A collective sigh could be heard from the Petuaria Players a week ago when our intensive period of three productions between August 2018 and May 2019 came to an end. Not that we didn’t enjoy our plays but that the hard work was over for a little while and we could take a break for the summer.

As always this does not mean that we do nothing. We now research and read plays and meet up for group readings to prepare for a new season.

‘Take Away The Lady’ was very well received and the change of genre proved to be popular. We will post a gallery of images from the play later this week. But for now, here are a few from before and after the play. (scroll down)

Thank you to all who have supported us over our last season both as audiences and volunteer helpers behind the scenes. It is the helpers, especially at set build and set destruct, that allow us to produce the sets that we do and construct the seating areas making true the adage ‘many hands make light work’. It is also true to say that without that help we would struggle.

If you or anyone you know fancy lending a helping hand during these occasional weekends – a bit of simple labouring, a skill, tools that might assist, anything – then do get in touch with our secretary. And Saturday is always group fish and chips day – if that’s not a draw what is?
