We have just started rehearsals for ‘Community Spirit’ by David Muncaster, which will take to the stage at Steeple Ashton Village Hall on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May and at Trowbridge Town Hall on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th May. Rehearsals are at The Park Club, in Trowbridge Park on Mondays and Fridays at 7.30pm.
The play is a comedy about the different groups who use the Snickerton Village Hall and the tensions that abound. The spirit in the title has three meanings. It refers to ‘get up and go’ but also there is a misunderstanding involving alcohol and the old village hall may also be haunted!
