Headley Theatre Club Newsletter – May  2018


A lot has happened since the last newsletter.  Wyrd Sisters, has finished its run and was judged a great success by both cast and audience alike.   Many thanks to all those who took part and particularly to Steve White the director.


There was a Presentation evening on Tuesday 24th April for the Summer Show; “Over the Top”.    There was a good turnout and also for the auditions for the “Black Adder” sketch “Goodbyee” on Thursday 26th April.   “Goodbyee” has now been cast and is already in rehearsal.   The next rehearsal date for the rest of the show is Thursday 24th May and we look forward to seeing many of you there.   The running order for the show has yet to be finalised but most of the main items are in place.   The rehearsals will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays as usually.   Most of the musical numbers will be ‘group’ numbers with at least two of them being Women only.   We may need to take some extra rehearsals for at least one of the pieces but we will liaise with Jo Levy and let you know about this as it happens.   The show will be performed on 13th & 14th July.  Contact Jo and/or Dil if you need any other information.


The, postponed, Green Room evening, finally took place on Friday 27th April, and I’m sure that everyone who took part, or just came to watch, thoroughly enjoyed the acts presented.   Lots of new faces and new material on stage, which is always nice.   It’s good to see that so many of our newer members already feel at home enough to put themselves forward.   Thanks again to Rachel for organising the evening.    


Headley Theatre Club AGM will be held on Thursday 31st May at 7pm in the Village Hall.   The agenda for the AGM has be sent out together with nomination forms if anyone wants to join the committee.   John will be standing down as treasurer at this AGM and we will be thanking him for his 21 years of service.


Don’t forget the annual Club Barbecue will be on – Sunday 15th July at 2.30pm at Dil & Jo’s house.  This is an event to which your family are invited too.   The Club will provide, salads, breads and puds but please bring any meat/fish/veg alternative you would like to cook on the BBQ and something to drink!   We hope for good weather!

(let us know if you need directions).


We now know that Nick will be directing two more episodes of Fawlty Towers for the autumn production: “A Touch of Class” and “Waldorf Salad”.  The dates for the show will be 28th/29th September & 5th/6th October.  More information about auditions etc later.


The pantomime slot this year will be filled by “Toad of Toad Hall” directed by Pru.   The dates will be January 11th/12th & 18th/19th.   More about this project later in the year.


One other thing, if anyone has access to, or knows of a source of, WW1 uniforms could the please let Dil know as she will need them for “Goodbyee”.


That’s all for now, but to keep up with the latest news see the Club’s website at www.headley-village.com/drama. And btw as we are in the process of revamping the website – if you have seen a site for a similar group that you particularly like let us know – we are looking for inspiration!
