CHAIR’S PRODUCTION NOTES
It’s good to be back! When I took over as Chair from Nicki back in February 2020 the last thing I expected was lockdown, and that we wouldn’t be putting on any productions for over a year.
During lockdown the group kept going on Zoom, taking the opportunity to read together, to give us ideas for future productions. Also, some of our members did the new Online Acting Exams, and all passed! However, it was great to be back in the room together for rehearsals – even if the doors and windows were wide open!
Sadly, during the last year we’ve lost a few friends and members. George Horne was well known in the village for his performances at the Rowntree Theatre, and George has supported and performed with the Monday Players for many years.
Terry Wilson has also been a longstanding friend of the group.
Elaine Wells joined the group a couple of years ago and was an accomplished actress. Elaine also died last year and is greatly missed.
Last year a number of friends retired from the group. We are very grateful for all that Barbara & Robert Hardcastle, David & Alma Belbin, David Lane, Pam & David Newsholme, Kath Wilson and Norma Nicholson have done for us over the years.
So, to the future. How best to emerge from the Pandemic? I’m pleased to announce that we’re going to have a recruitment drive, offering a course of 6 ‘Let’s Get Acting’ workshops in January and February 2022, costing £10, which gets you all the workshops and membership of the Monday Players for a year.
So, if you want to give acting a try - or if you want to give it another try – please contact me on 01757 249820. Similarly, if you know someone who you think might enjoy acting, please pass the word on.
Tonight’s production of two short plays will involve almost all the Players. I’d like to welcome you back to the Village Hall, and hope you enjoy the show.
