Headley Theatre Club Newsletter – September 2018
Well, as you know, we had to 'pull' Fawlty Towers because dear old John Cleese decided to withdraw the rights to perform. Apparently, we weren't the only Am Dram group to suffer from this.
However, we were lucky to have an alternative ready in the locker, and we are now in rehearsal for 3 episodes of Jo Smith's Jobsworth sketches. As these are written to be performed on radio, the cast don't need to learn their lines - they just read them! For more info on Jobsworth, see www.johnowensmith.co.uk/play_job.htm - we are doing 'Drain Damage', ''Allo Beenfor', and 'Round the Bard'. Rehearsals are going well.
There will be two performances only, on Fri 5th and sat 6th October. Tickets are just £12, but that price still includes the same 3-course meal that we had planned for 'Fawlty'.
Many of you will know that Janet is incapacitated at the moment, so for the time being Tina will be organising tickets and seating. Please contact her on 01428 717784 with your ticket orders.
Make a note in your diaries that the read-through for Toad of Toad Hall will be on Thursday 11th October at 8pm in the Village Hall, with auditions the following Tuesday.
Next up is a social event on Friday 26th October when we are hosting a "Board Games Evening" in aid of the Village Hall Car Park Drainage fund. Tickets will be £8.00 and will include a ploughman's supper. The evening is open to all so bring your friends!
The Village Fete on Saturday 15th went well, and we made £77.50 on our lucky dip game (thanks to everyone who donated bottles) which will be added to the profits from the "Board Game Evening" for the Village Hall Car Park fund.
For further information on what we're planning to do in the future, see our website.
