Generations Apart: The Photos

With rehearsals already underway for our next production (more on that in the next post) it’s time to share some photos from our popular production of Peter Gordon’s wonderful ‘Generations Apart’ as promised.

It’s a lovely play that has it all, humour, passion, pain, anger, romance, with twists and turns and a trip to 1969. It was a challenge jumping from era to era and all the costume changes but we loved it and so did our audiences.  With a soundtrack that featured songs from 1969 and 1996 it was a fun production for all, one that had the added bonus of the author attending on the final night and an excellent discussion afterwards.

As for the photos – this time appearing as a slide show – you can just let it run or speed up by clicking the control arrows.  Or if you prefer a more conventional look, visit our gallery page here.

Generations Apart: Yeah!

It’s really been a gas this time.  Oh man this play was totally far out.  We had such a fab time and our audiences really seemed to dig our performances.

Yes, suddenly it’s over and everything is packed away until our next production in three months time. We promised a good play and we delivered. Our audiences were treated to memories, great characters, laughter and tears, romance, high emotion and surprises.  A lovely play by the ever popular Peter Gordon, one that is just not performed enough.

And so we were very pleased to find Peter in our audience on our final night and to welcome him on stage after the performance for post-play drinks.  It was a great opportunity to discuss a play with its author and to appreciate the inspiration behind its creation.

So here are a couple of photos from our post play fun on stage. Watch out for more posts in the next week with photographs taken at the dress rehearsal.

Generations Apart: this week!

Yes, after a lot of hard work we are almost ready to run Generations Apart with our first night only three days away.

We were pleased on Saturday to get a personal message from the author, Peter Gordon, wishing us well in our run and telling us it is one of his personal favourites. This play will add another to our long list of Peter Gordon’s comedies and plays that we have performed over the years.

This weekend we completed the stage set and the auditorium layout, turning it as usual from an empty hall to a room full of tiered seating with refreshments area. Our tech rehearsal is complete. The sounds and lights are done. A final dress rehearsal on Wednesday will check out the performance on stage – and then we just need you, our audiences. There are some seats left if you hurry.

Over the next few days our new poster will be seen around Brough, Elloughton and the surrounding villages. So it’s time to accelerate the promotion of our latest production which we will be performing at the end of October.
