It’s a challenging and time-consuming period for everyone as the number of rehearsals increase and we tease out the detail and the lines.  But more than that, we introduce the music, the sound effects and the props, plan the scene changes, devise and publish the programme in readiness for opening night.

Next week sees the final rehearsals in ‘The Forum’ (the rather grand name for our drama hut and rehearsal room adjacent to the Village Hall) before we have a busy weekend of set building and building the seating in readiness for the performances.  Only then can we translate the work we have done onto a stage environment – the Technical Rehearsal – which will work out our lighting, sounds and stage entrances and exits, scene changes and back stage functions.

Come and see the results of our efforts 28 / 29 / 30 April.
