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. Just scroll through our side bar (depending on your device) and look for the Follow Us by email logo.

Meanwhile we have photos to show you from the dress rehearsal of The Hallelujah Girls. Just click on a photo to see enlarged and scroll through.

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.

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…

Produced by Richard Bateman

Cast: (order of appearance) Dianne Turner, Barbara Failey, Janet Drewery, Rachel Miller, Gill Collins, Nic Johnson, Rob Newton, Wyn Price.

Happy Easter folks

 

Yes the happy crew at Petuaria Players wish you a lovely Easter break. With less than two weeks to opening night the cast can be forgiven for tucking into Easter eggs to calm their nerves – although in truth any excuse for chocolate is a good excuse.  We are taking a few days off but Monday night will be back to full-on as we enter into our last rehearsals in the Forum.

Sound cues being tested

Now we are working on the detail of the dialogue, delivery and body language and also running with the sounds and props – most of which have a distinctly  American flavour.

Along with that our play programme is in final draft and that goes for publication on Tuesday.  With the last play we moved forward at no expense and introduced colour programmes for the first time since our special 50th anniversary booklet in 2011.

And then next Friday we shall be starting a weekend of constructing the set.
