Players Summer Newsletter 2012

Oops should I have called this the Summer edition!??

Still, lots of news to catch up on so here goes.

AGM. Not as many of you attended this year, I wonder why. This years’ recipient of the Judy Award was Celia Lessiter – much to her surprise! Another worthy winner.

Officers remain as Dick – chair, Bar – secretary and Neil – treasurer.

Speaking of which your subs are now due. £12 per adult and £10 under 18’s.

A slight increase was agreed for next year when adults will be £15 no change for under 18’s.

Two plays and a pasty.

What a successful production! We had an excellent crit from CDA ( they liked the play as well as the pasties!) It was really good to see our members supporting the show.

Our plays are gaining in popularity with a good following. Watch this space for next years’ choice.

Magic of the Musicals.

Dick is once again creating some wonderful sounds with an enthusiastic cast, and this show really has “something for everyone”!. Make sure you spread the word amongst your friends. Dates are 22nd – 25th August. Our chosen charity for the first night is Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Youth group.

The Lion the witch and the wardrobe has a large enthusiastic cast. I hope CS Lewis won’t mind that I’ve added some characters! Performance dates are 31st Oct – 3rd Nov matinee only. ( The CDA dinner will be on the weekend before this year – 27th October ).

Panto – 1001 nights and a matinee.

Nov half-term is a week late and Feb half-term is a week early – go figure!

This means that Dika and John intend to call a casting reading on September

16th at 7.30pm


Following last years’ Les Mis Musical Workshop day, we are arranging another workshop (Acting this time!) for later this year. It is called ‘Finding the character’ presented by David Richey of ‘The House of Fun Theatre. Numbers are limited (12) so get in quick. Give your name to Dick or Bar asap please.

Appear on TV.

Channel 4 are planning a new series. They want to hear from anyone who had two or more children living at home and are a warm engaging family.

Building work.

Our thanks, gratitude, congratulations and best wishes go to Kippy and Mike

They have spent a great many hours working back stage and have created a new mezzanine floor/ ceiling/ storage space/hidey hole…

Seriously they have more than doubled our storage space for props, scenery and wardrobe. We were desperate for more space and thanks to the inspiration of these two wonderful guys we should be ok for a long time.

Portreath Fun Day. 29th July. 12 – 6.00

We have been invited to take the role of ‘story lady’ this year. Shelley, Dika and Bar will take turns telling stories. It is an ideal opportunity to give out fliers for our summer show. Please let Dick know if you can spare some time. (Any other publicity ideas or opportunities also welcome).

Next letter when I have some news.
