PLAYERS NEWSLETTER WINTER 2014.
Hello everyone – I’ve just realised that we haven’t had a newsletter since last September. This isn’t as bad as it sounds as almost all of you are contacted by email or facebook so don’t worry, you haven’t missed anything!
Since I last wrote we have enjoyed the Youth group’s production of ‘A fairy tale adventure’ – or rather, an awful lots of you didn’t – it was very noticeable that there was very little support for either preparing for the show or attending a performance.
Just because you are not actually in a show it doesn’t stop you from coming to lend a hand.
The Gordon Giltrap concert was well received and enjoyed . Many thanks to John for organising the event and those who helped setting up and doing front of house.
Glad rags and tiara’s were brought out of mothballs for the annual CDA dinner/disco. No awards for us this year but a great night nevertheless.
Cast and crew are working very hard getting the show ready. We are so pleased that we have some new members joining us this year(It feels like they have always been with us) and this panto has a particularly funny script.
I trust you have all noted the change in performance dates –
TUESDAY 18TH – FRIDAY 21ST FEBRUARY, at 7.30pm. (NB – 2.30 Matinee on the FRIDAY). Please make sure you tell all of your friends, we don’t want them turning up on the Saturday – the wedding party wouldn’t appreciate it! You can book your tickets now, through any cast member or telephone Dika on 01209 211039.
It’s not too late to lend a hand with publicity, sewing, ironing, prop making and the hundreds of other jobs that need doing. We need YOU! We especially need help with small sewing jobs and publicity. Posters are available if you can get one put up anywhere.
After show party / Dinner dance.
We are taking advantage of having Saturday 22nd Feb. suddenly free. At the Seiner’s, Perranporth – 3 course meal and disco £20 pp. As well as being the after-show party, 2014 is the Players’ 45th Anniversary – good excuse for a knees-up and a chance to get glammed up! Everyone welcome. Please speak to Shirley or Celia who are kindly organising this event for us, asap.
Singing for fun / Spring Cabaret
Singing for Fun starts directly after the pantomime; these evenings are a fun relaxed way to spend time with your friends. Why not make a special effort and see if you can bring along a new member. (One thing we’ve noticed over the last few shows is how the cast numbers are getting smaller). The Supper Cabaret shows will be on 27th to 29th May, in Spring Bank Holiday week – programme will be Musicals-based.
Two plays and another pasty. ( Working title !)31st July – 2nd August.
There are 3 men and 3 women in each play, can be doubled up if necessary. As before I would like to include a selection of songs so if you don’t fancy acting there will be something for you.
I will put a list backstage for those interested or you can contact Bar direct.
Youth Production. ‘Down the rabbit hole’.
This is an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland with a selection of ‘modern’ songs woven into it. Details to follow.
That’s all for now, see you at the panto.
