2015 already !!!! I hope this finds you all free from the dreaded coughs and colds that seemed to have plagued my family and that you all had a good Christmas, and that this year is happy and healthy for one and all .
The busy year for the theatre ended most successfully with the production of ‘The Female of the Species’. We decided to run it for 6 nights, something we have not done for many a year, and it was a sell-out before the first night! It was a great week, a superb cast and crew who worked extremely hard and deserved all the praise they got . Audience feedback was excellent and the adjudication was most positive.
As you know, we are trying to raise funds for our building project to enhance and improve the audience entrance and toilet block, so instead of a Christmas party this year, Mike Beddard suggested we resurrect the old tradition of carol singing around the village. So we did……. all 7 of us!!!!! On 13th Dec and raised no less than £127!! Thanks to those who came and to John Booth who led the singing with his guitar, to the ‘Oddfellows’ and the ‘Bull’ and the Italian restaurant who allowed us to go in and sing. Unfortunately the dreaded lurgy prevented some of you coming but It was good fun and we ended up at Shaun Dunne’s where a lovely casserole and warm fire awaited us. Thank you Shaun and Lorraine.
SUBS…. SUBS……SUBS……….. DUE! Unfortunately January is the time when I have to remind you that subs are due and at the Sept AGM it was decided to raise the amount to £20 a year. Sorry folks but it is still quite low compared to some other societies and well worth being part of such a prestigious group!!!!!!! Please either send to the treasurer:- Don Anderson at 24 Queensgate. Castle. Northwich CW8 1DX or hand to me at one of the January events.
We are in need of a booking clerk. Someone who will man the phone to take bookings for plays. This is a very important job which Graham and Bob have undertaken for the past few plays but as Graham is directing the next play he cannot do it as well. Please let me know if you would be willing to fulfil this vitally important role.
MOULTON JOINT PRODUCTION
Next July we are planning to join forces with Moulton drama group to produce some one act plays. Both societies will perform 1 or 2 one act plays and we will perform them 3 nights in each venue, 9-11th July at Davenham and 16-18th July at Moulton. If there is anyone with a desire to direct a play, then it is a good way to start. Please contact me if you are interested.
There is a lot happening at our theatre in January so please note ….
