Our next production is going to be "A Writer in the Family" by Ian Preston. A brief overview - A successful writer inherits a family home in Scotland but not everyone is happy about his inheritance, murder ensues. Who dunnit, with what and why?
The great news is that the audiences at our three panto performances were even more generous than usual, we collected £750 through the retiring collections and the group has added £150 to that figure which means we can donate £900 to the Cobalt Appeal. Well done everyone.
We are not meeting on the 11th December but on the 18th we will be at Badgeworth Village Hall for our Christmas get together and hopefully to cast our next play for performance in April. Once the cast is sorted we will let you have more details about the play.
What does Maria Sophia von Erthal have in common with Snow White?
It is believed Maria was the inspiration for the character of Snow White, she was harshly treated by her step mother, died in 1796 and the headstone from her grave has just gone on display in Bamberg, Germany. Not a lot of people know that!
Come and see the panto, book your tickets now. Details on the Home page.
Message from our Director Carolyn about our November production, "I have now looked into the Charity and wish to support two appeals currently being made by COBALT Cheltenham. These are Dementia Futures Fund and Supporting Teenagers and Young Adults with Cancer. Information is available on their Website." Very good choices let's hope for a ticket sellout so we can raise a lot of money for local good causes.
Our next production isn't until November but the hard work has started already, the easy bit is getting up on the stage to perform but behind them is a team of people who make it all happen. The photo is of the first production meeting where we were going through the early stages of planning the set, lighting, sound, publicity, costumes, tickets, seating plan etc.etc. We will post pictures of rehearsals as we go through the summer. Tickets for the show will be available in early Septmber.
