Don't Blame it on the Boots by NJ Warburton
No one would have blamed it on the boots if only Kate had produced Macbeth instead of Hamlet, or Ophelia hadn't been so attractive and naive, or Eric had smaller feet and wasn't the drama group's prize flirt, or Liz's father hadn't been an actor who once trod the boards at Stratford in those self-same boots.
Ophelia - Poppy Hardwicke
Eric - Paul Gorsuch
Kate - Sadie Fisher
Liz - Jane Lunn
Lockdown Little Grimley by David Tristram
The fifth in a series of short plays following a hapless Amateur Dramatic Society. In lockdown the Chairman Gordon calls for an emergency meeting, socially distanced, to discuss his idea of the next production - a touching love story set in a hospital, with all profits going the NHS. But based on previous events - will the NHS actually benefit?
Bernard - Pete Hutton
Margaret - Laura Parsons
Gordon - John Cropper
Joyce - Tracey Baker

Activities are back on track
We held our first workshops of the season on 12 March, led by Stevie Thompson from The Rude Mechanicals on creating characters from the Commedia dell'Arte tradition. Great fun was had by all, although the adults might have been a little stiff the next day! Join us to sign up for more workshops over the coming months: the next one is on Theatrical Costume Design.
As a charity, in the good times, we pay our bills from the profits of shows and members subscriptions. All that is on hold at the moment, so if you would like to make a donation to help keep us going, please click on the donate button and follow the instructions. Thank you.
