With Coronavirus restrictions imposed by HMG, Westoning Players have postponed their next Show (Bunkered) indefinitely. At the most optimistic it will be April 2021 before we can put on this show.
No weekly Thursday club nights for the foreseeable future, BUT, we DO intend to try to have some sort of meeting-up on the first Thursday of each month for a bit of a natter and maybe a play reading - social distancing and Covid rules permitting. And we shall try to hold a social (? online / remote ?) Quiz event before the end of the year.
Please be on the lookout for the email from our Chairman...
Our current plan is to start rehearsing again as soon as we are permitted to, whilst complying with the HM Government guidelines.
We will, of course, keep you updated as time goes by.
We are saddened to report the recent passing of two WP members, Cindy Baldwin and Harry Frost.
You may recall Cindy was in many of our pantomimes and musical shows over the years. The first pantomime she was in was Puss in Boots in 2002.
She had the most beautiful singing voice and has sung many of the lovely classic Disney songs. For us She had the perfect voice for them. In fact I think they were written with her in mind!! One that I remember was “A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes” which she sang in the pantomime Buttons. And my other favourite song she sang was “There’s a Long, Long, Trail” in our show commemorating the beginning of the WW1 “Pack Up Your Troubles”.
She was a lovely, kind person with a great sense of humour and is greatly missed by the Society.
Harry Frost was with us for our pantomime Buttons. He was a magician and Jennie suggested that he came along and entertain the audience with a few magic tricks. He was only 15 at the time and his patter when doing his tricks was very funny and clever. He was a very assured and confident young man. A great pleasure to have him in the show.
