Happy New Year to all our members! Welcome to a brand new year of theatrical adventures…
To dispel the January blues, we have our New Year Social Evening on Friday 25th January, at 7.30, at St. Rumon’s Social Club (formerly Royal British Legion) in Redruth. Cost (payable on the night) will be around £3 per person. NB: The evening will include the launch night for Hello Dolly!, but it is not only for that, so please don’t stay away if you are not intending to do that show! We want to see everyone – this will be a great opportunity to catch up and relax together, with a bar, a pasty supper, a theatrical quiz, and a raffle. It’s also an ideal time to invite any potential new members for the group. Please let Dick know asap if you are attending, and to confirm numbers for pasties. (You can use Facebook, text 07870 979658, or email Richard500@aol.com) Anyone who doesn’t book in advance is welcome to turn up on the night, but won’t get a pasty! If you have any spare Christmas presents that would be suitable as raffle prizes, we would be very grateful – please give them to Dick.
PANTO – 1001 Arabian Nights (and a Matinee) 20th to 23rd February
John and Dika are doing a great job – rehearsals are shaping up really well, and lots of work is going on with the staging and costumes. Please do all you can to publicise the show – tickets are now bookable at rehearsals. If you can help with any of the non-performing work, please contact Dika or John. Any offers to help front-of-house, or raffle prizes, to Dika, please.
Hello Dolly! 29th May to 1st June
Dick is busy with the advance planning for this exciting show. As above, the launch night will be at the New Year Social on the 25th January, and audition pieces will be available then for anyone interested in a part. There will also be a chance to see some of the DVD and hear the songs, for anyone who doesn’t know the show. This is a fabulous show with wonderful songs and great costumes and will give us a great opportunity for showing what we can do with our acting, singing and dancing! Auditions will be on Thursday 28th February, and rehearsals commence on Sunday 3rd March. Dick is planning to break down rehearsals for principals/chorus/specific scenes, so it won’t be a case of everyone needing to be available for 3 nights a week for the whole 3 months. There are loads of non-performing things to do for this show (particularly set-building), so all offers of help gratefully received!
Further productions this year will be a play in the Summer, and a Youth production in October – details to be announced later.
