2017 Season

1.

First up we have Uncle Vanya, by Anton Chekhov and directed by Peter Lavelle. Uncle Vanya is a Costume drama set on a rural Russian estate and is both comic and tragic, an incredible piece of drama that still stands as a masterpiece.
Performances between 3 - 19 March.
There will be a reading of the play after the regular December meeting (5 Dec 7:30pm) with auditions to be held on Sunday 10 December at 5pm and Monday 11 December at 7:30pm. Rehearsals will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 20 December.

2.

Secondly will be Calendar Girls by Tim Firth and directed by Lesley Carter. Calendar girls is based on the movie of the same name. Originally based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund.
Performances between 26 May - 11 June.
Dates of auditions and rehearsals to be announced closer to the date.

3.

Third up is Song Contest - the Almost Eurovision Experience by Glynn Nicholas and directed by a team including Alyson Whiteoak, Jenelle Davis and others to be announced. Song Contest – the Almost Eurovision Experience is a glitzy comedic and loving tribute to  the Eurovision Song Contest. It’s as close to the real thing as you can get, with eleven countries competing, a multitude of anxious contestants, a gushing hostess and all the quirkiness that both delights us and makes us cringe in a single breath.  The audience voting is authentic with the potential for a different winner every night (come a couple of times and you will see it’s not rigged.) If you love Eurovision more than kittens or would rather chew alfoil that sit through it, you will adore this show.
Performances between 18 August - 3 September.
Dates of auditions and rehearsals to be announced closer to the date.

4.

And finally we have The Vicar Of Dibley by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew Archer and directed by Debbie Szota. Our stage version of this hilarious, yet heart-warming BBC TV sitcom features all the eccentric, lovable characters, including Alice, the blonde, dippy verger; Owen, the earthy, local farmer and the stuttering Jim who prefaces most remarks with no-no-no-no-yes! And, of course, there’s the inimitable vicar herself. Written by the authors of the original TV series, this show is sure to delight.
Performances between 17 November - 2 December.
Dates of auditions and rehearsals to be announced closer to the date.
