Welcome to the October newsletter and the oncoming autumn. Everywhere I look I see items for Halloween and even some Christmas items creeping in. For me I am still basking in the sunny days.




Last month we re-read Babes in the Wood, which is being directed by Wendy Keeble and Kerry Hudson and following the read, we quickly followed with auditions.


I was happy to see lots of people at the read and auditions and particularly some new faces amongst the returnees.


As we speak rehearsals have begun and the process of building, sewing and line learning starts.


With that in mind Tracey is keen to start on costumes and has requested that anyone taking part in the panto, both principals and chorus, come down to the community centre on Monday 10th October. Please let Wendy, Kerry or Tracey know if you want to take part but cannot attend this date.


Tracey will also be holding a sewing day for panto towards the end of the year, to aid in the large job that is panto costume creation. When the date is confirmed I will be letting you know.




As you are aware the woodworm in the wardrobe in the scene dock is in progress of getting this treated. To do this we have cleared the mezzanine and the wardrobe and are storing our costumes in the dressing rooms.


This has given Tracey the opportunity to go through and catalogue our extensive costume collection, and has therefore been something of a blessing in disguise.


However, at some point everything will need to be replaced in the wardrobe. As you can imagine, chis is a big task and, as many hands make light work, we will be asking for volunteers when we know the date.


That’s all for now, see you all soon


Your Chairman

Ros Bartlett

We have a good sized stage and have a large scene dock to store flats and props, which allows us to build our own sets.

Anyone is welcome to join our club, you don't have to act as there are plenty of backstage, front of house roles.

Please feel free to pop in and have a chat, or E-Mail me for further information
