Do come to support Chris & Clare at one of their performances of "Around the World in Twenty Songs". (Originally billed as 30 songs, they thought that might seems a bit daunting on a poster - it will be between 20 and 30!) You have a choice of a 2.30pm matinée on Sunday 13 October and an 8pm evening show on Saturday 19 October. There will be afternoon tea served at the matinée (with a glass of prosecco!) and a light supper at the evening show. There will also be a cash bar at the evening show. Tickets are priced at £10 for the matinée, and £12.50 for the evening. Proceeds will go to the Village Hall Drainage and Car Park Fund. We're having a special committee meeting on 30th Sept to finalise what help they'll need on the night, but help in setting up and clearing up after the shows would be much appreciated.
We've made great strides in clearing out our storage places in and around the hall, and many thanks to those who have spared their time to help. There are some pictures of our efforts on the website. All that's left to sort out now is the cupboard behind the stage and the space under the stage. We have another 'Shed Day' pencilled in for Sunday 20th October (the day after Chris & Clare's last show) and any of you able to turn up to help from 10am on that day will be welcomed.
We did a good job at Waggoners Wells on August Bank Holiday Monday (see photos on the website), and are due to 'do' Hindhead Common on Saturday 28 September. Jo has cast the speaking roles, but there are also 'crowd scenes' which anyone can join in. Please contact Jo if you want to be involved.
Snow White 2020
Mel is looking forward to seeing you all at the read-through (1 Oct) and auditions (3 Oct) for Snow White - both at 8pm in the village hall. Please come along and give her your support. The rehearsal schedule is on the website, and the performances will be on 10, 11 & 17, 18 January 2020.
We have put up on the website a list of likely productions for 2020 as follows:
Fri 28 Feb - Green Room - organised by Dil & Jo
April 24/25 - a Murder Mystery directed by Rachel
July 17/18 - an Old Time Music Hall directed by Dil & Jo
Oct 9/10 & 16/17 - an Autumn play - to be arranged
As ever, if you have a different thought about what we can do, let us know. We are open to new ideas.
Dil will be organising the Village Christmas Concert again this year. It will be on Saturday 14th December at the Village Hall. If you would like to take part please get in touch. The theme this year will, probably, be Christmas songs from films, TV and the stage, but this would not exclude other Christmas items. Sketches, readings, carols, jokes anything is acceptable. Dil has some items that she would like to fit in - we just need someone to volunteer to perform them. There will also be a "Christmas Choir" again which will rehearse with Jo Levy and do 3 or 4 songs. Contact Dil if you are interested in taking part.
