We’ve cast our play (“Cash on Delivery”) and rehearsals are under way, with lots of laughs. We’d really like to hear form anybody who can help out with all those other essentials of a successful production, like stage management, prompting, set building and painting, costume and prop assembly or construction… All necessary and much appreciated by the cast (and of course the audience!), so if you can help, please do get in touch.
We are also aware that it’s a bit of a let-down if you want to get involved with the Players but don’t find that sitting through a lot of rehearsals by other people is very appealing. So we thought we’d get some regular club nights going. We had a couple of gatherings at The Lamb last year, with mixed success. We’ll probably re-institute those if there’s strong demand, as it’s a convivial place to socialise. However, we thought a more ‘dramatic’ focus might be better received, and that the Tesco Community Space is a good place for that–so we are having a first club night on Monday 7th March 2017, primarily to explore what things people would most like.
Do come along!
We have decided on “Cash on Delivery” by Michael Cooney as our next production. We will be performing it at The Arc theatre at Wiltshire College, Trowbridge from Wednesday 26th to Saturday 29th April 2017. We are pleased to welcome Jamie Wright and Tirion Cowell from Trowbridge College and The Arc as directors. They are keen to get involved with working with Trowbridge Players.
We’ve had a few readings of the play at the Tesco Community Space, and I think the general view is that it is very funny, with some good lines and some very ridiculous situations. It was written in the 1990s, and we’ll probably set it then — but that decision is obviously up to the directors.
We will be holding auditions for the parts (6 men and 5 women, ages mostly indeterminate) at The Arc from 19:30 on Friday 17th February and Monday 20th February 2017. We look forward to seeing lots of people there, and lots of people getting involved in putting on the production!
We are all geared up to produce our annual pantomime in January 2017, a traditional activity that has delighted audiences for many years!
This time we present a version of “Mother Goose”, with performances over two weeks, from Thursday 12th to Sunday 22nd January, at The Arc theatre, part of the Wiltshire College complex in College Road, Trowbridge.
Do come and enjoy the show! Also, why not get involved? It’s very enjoyable and sociable!
