“Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them”  Twelfth Night  Act 2 scene 5

Sheila writes: “Thanks for electing me as Chairman last week.  I can’t promise to work miracles only to do my best.”

A quick reminder that Tuesday, 18 June we will be auditioning for BOLT FROM THE BLUE which I hope will be an enjoyable play to take part in.  It’s different, quirky and should be altogether lots of fun.

On TUESDAY 25th there won’t be a general meeting as we will be holding our first COMMITTEE MEETING of this season.  If you have anything you would like the new committee to discuss please let

me know tonight or by e mail tomorrow latest.

TUESDAY 2nd July – Peter C and Sue Hardman will be holding a rehearsal for the dances that will be presented at the Crow Fair.  Please contact Peter direct for details about this.

TUESDAY 9th July – Please do come along to a general meeting of ALL members.  I would like to discuss the future of the drama group and to get everyone’s opinion as to how we should proceed.

Also we need to discuss several important ideas and suggestions that have been put forward about collaborating with other groups.

Reminders:   Please let Derek Morris know if you would like to visit Media City in Salford Quays on Thursday,  17 Sept.  Signing up is now urgent as places are limited.

Please let Sue or Lynn have your prizes for their Crow Fair Stall (366 needed!).

2013/14 Season Update

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

You may know by now that a small sub-committee has, over the last couple of months, spent many hours pouring over play scripts trying to find suitable plays for our 13/14 season.

A short list has now been picked and it looks likely that Sheila Hetherington will be directing the first play in the autumn.

Please help me to chose the most suitable play by letting me know NOW whether you think you will be available to play a part or not.

It would also be helpful to know what size part you would consider.  Please do reply by Tuesday 23rd April latest so that I can make a considered decision to the committee when we next meet on 1 May.

Many thanks.

May 2013 production

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

The production of Absurd Person Singular scheduled for  28 May has had to be abandoned due to casting difficulties

News for November

Friday, November 9th, 2012


Derek will be arranging a trip (own transport) to see Oliver at the Grange Theatre, Hartford on Friday 18 January.  Tickets are £12 adults,  £10 concessions and  £6 per child.  Ben Ireson is directing and Annie and Ian are taking part.  Please contact Derek soon as it is anticipated that the show will sell out very quickly.  Don’t be disappointed.


Has anyone any photos from  Lark Rise or Blood Brothers that they could spare for our photo albums?  No official ones were taken for these productions and it would be a shame not to have a few in the archives.  Please pass to Joan Christie if you have any.


Please could anyone who would like to take part in a one act play let me know soon as we are trying to put on a couple of one acts to keep together  those not involved in the next two small cast plays.
