Headley Theatre Club — Newsletter January 2022

Christmas Concert, Fri/Sat 10/11 December

The Christmas concert went well, although there were not as many in the audience as in previous years. We shared the proceeds 50/50 with the Village Fete, and our 'cut' amounted to £100.

Club History 2012-202

On Friday 14 January at 8pm, Jo will be giving a Zoom presentation on Headley Theatre Club history 2012-2021 – in other words picking up from where he left off last time and bringing us up to date. See the website for logon details. A recording will be available for those who miss it on the night.

Sleeping Beauty — now 11/12 & 18/19 March 2022

We knew it was a risk to plan for a January performance, and in the end we've decided to play safe and shift the panto along by two months. Two factors led to this decision: first, if cast members had to isolate during rehearsals we wouldn't get enough time to put it together; and second, we felt that audiences might not be willing to come to the performances while 'omicron' was still around.
   So, the show will now be performed on 11/12 & 18/19 March 2022 – tickets priced at £8 (children £5) with discounts for families and groups. Tina Wareham is in charge of ticket sales. You will also be able to buy from Tina's Hair in Headley High Street, or on-line.
   Please note that the matinée of the second Saturday has been sold to a local PTA, so tickets for this will not be on general sale..

Murder Mystery

Rachel is still hoping to produce the Murder Mystery which was aborted in 2020 - we hope it will be some time this Spring. A final decision is yet to be made on the precise dates, which will depend on cast availability.

Flora's Peverel, 15/16/17 & 22/23 July 2022

Jo has booked venues to perform "Flora's Peverel" in July – we plan to begin at The Phoenix, Bordon on Friday 15 July, followed by Liphook Village Hall on Sat 16 July (matinée & evening), then Haslemere Museum for a matinée on Sunday 17 July, outside on the lawn if possible – and after a week's break, The Triangle at Liss for the evening of Friday 22 July, then in Headley Village Hall on Sat 23 July (matinée & evening) with the run ending at the Holybourne Theatre for a matinée on Sunday 24 July. Should be fun. More details nearer the time. For those interested, the script is available for downloading from the website.

Platinum Jubilee

As we were founded in Coronation Year (1952) our club jubilees run in tandem with those of the Queen. Therefore, it's our Platinum Jubilee this year as well as hers. Whether we do anything special to celebrate it depends on how other events pan out, so watch this space for more information.

Meanwhile, stay safe – we hope to see you at rehearsals, or at the next show.
