Headley Theatre Club — Newsletter August 2022

Flora's Peverel

The tour of Flora's Peverel went very well despite earlier problems with casting and Covid. Feedback from audiences was very good – one lady even came back and brought her husband to a second show!
It gave an opportunity for a number of our new and existing Club members to perform in challenging roles, and we particularly enjoyed the part the musicians played. Everyone did brilliantly – and we'd like to thank all who helped with the show in any capacity. Well done!

The Vicar of Dibley 21/22 October 2022

Nick Webb will be directing the October show, which will be another 2 episodes from The Vicar of Dibley TV series – 'Summer' and 'Autumn' – with a 3-course meal included in the ticket price of £18. Audience numbers will be limited, so we advise you book early for family and friends. Tickets will be on sale shortly.
There will be a read-through of the script in Headley Village Hall at 8pm on Tuesday 16 August with auditions at same time, same place on the Thursday 18 August – so watch the episodes (from Series 3) on BBC iPlayer and make a note in your diaries if you think you'll be interested in taking part.

Headley Down open day Sunday 28 August

The Woodlands Community Hall Association is running an Open Day from 1-5pm on Sunday 28 August, and we will see if we can have a stall there. It would be an opportunity to advertise our presence and gather new members.

Headley Fete — Saturday 17 September

The Club will have a presence at the Fete on Headley Village Green, running the 'hidden bottle' game again, and also a 'dressing up for a photo' stall. We'll take part in the initial procession too. Details from Dil.

Youth Group

Building on the experience with Flora's Peverel, we would like to encourage younger members of the Club to continue to meet, and Karina has agreed to act as co-ordinator – so please get in touch with her if you'd like to be part of this new initiative.

'Yuletide in Headley' Saturday 17 December

Dil is organising this annual event in Headley Village Hall and will be trawling for performers to fill the programme. Just the one show, and not a lot of rehearsing needed. Contact her if interested – or she may contact you!

Pantomime 2023 13/14 & 20/21 January

Cavan Syrad will direct his version of Aladdin for our January 2023 pantomime. Rehearsals to start in late October.

Stay safe – and we hope to see you at rehearsals, at a Social event, or at the next show!
