News Headlines – Oct 8th

SEVENTEEN DAYS TO GO

Hard to believe (and guaranteed to raise the heart rate for the cast when they read this) but there are only 17 days to our first night of The Odd Couple (female version).  Rehearsals have increased to three nights per week now as we refine the detail and ensure our sounds and props are all part of the unseen flow of the play.


SET BUILD & PERFORMANCE NIGHTS

Our set building weekend in the Village Hall on Elloughton Road takes place on Fri / Sat / Sun am (19, 20, 21 October) which is always demanding work – if you feel you would like to offer your help why not get in touch?

We are also always in need of help on refreshments.  All those teas and coffees and juices and biscuits need to be provided quickly for the audience rush at the interval. Again, if you would like to help out on one (or more) performance nights then contact us.

If you would like to offer some help in any capacity please contact our secretary Dianne to discuss, using the contact details here


NEW TICKET DESK

Steve Turner our friendly and efficient Ticket Secretary takes his job very seriously.  Getting 150 audience members to pay, provide their tickets, get them through and seated in 30 minutes is no mean task.  Which means friendly Steve can turn ugly Steve when we commandeer his ticket desk as part of the stage set furniture.  Which we seem to do rather too often.

But this time, friendly Steve will be ecstatic Steve when he sits behind our new Ticket Reception & Cash Handling Facility (a desk).  Not just any desk.  Still glowing from watching his sash windows construction star in our last play, we commissioned Mike Morland to face the ultimate challenge of providing a desk that would make Steve T smile.

So with a pack-away easy-store desk with cash drawers and all mod cons meeting his own brief he should be a happy man this October.  Although when he saw it he did ponder on the addition of a perspex screen, a panic alarm, and an overhead flashing light with a speaker that said “Cashier number one please…… cashier number one please….”

At the moment we are of course busy with rehearsals for Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple (female version) which you can read about here.  Although we had decided to run this play before his death, it will serve as a tribute to Neil Simon who passed away on 26 August at the age of 91. Apart from the Odd Couple, we have enjoyed performing a number of his scripts, especially the ‘Suite’ plays.
