Welcome to the November newsletter and happy Thanksgiving to everyone. As I write I am reminded everywhere that Christmas is coming both from Black Friday offers (although is seems like Black Week) to my neighbour already having her Christmas tree up. It seems that the festive season is upon us and that can only mean one thing Panto.




Panto rehearsals are going well with everyone learning their lines and song words. The process of set building and sewing is also starting / ongoing.


As there is a lot to do on this front there mind Tracey is holding a sewing day for panto on 27th November. If you are available please join Tracey at the community centre between 10am-4pm. All help is appreciated, even if you only have a couple of hours spare. And don’t worry if you cannot sew there is plenty for everyone to do. Homemade soup, bread, cheese, pate and homemade cake are being provided for lunch.


In addition to costumes building the set is also a key activity. Graeme could always do with help in this, and the team met on Sunday’s at the Centre. If you have some time to spare please join them.


Finally, as usual, Panto tickets will be going on sale from fun night, so don’t forget to order yours and get all your friends, family, people off the street to come too.


Spring Production


Even though we are in the thick of panto thoughts are already turning to our next potential show in spring.


Once panto is complete the first step is to read through any potential shows that people want to put forward. The date for the reads is 6th February.


If you want to put forward a show please let us know, if not please come down to the Centre to support and read.




As the year comes to a close we will be holding our AGM. The date penciled in for this is 30th January. As always we will be electing the committee at this meeting, if you are interested in joining please let Leigh know.


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.
