Chairmans May 2024 Letter

Hi Everyone,
We had a committee meeting last night and would like to report that not only was "Murder in Little Grimley" by David Tristram, as a show with a meal, a resounding success... but it made a very healthy profit for us!
Well done to everyone involved, it was hard work on the production dates but very good fun to be involved with.
As a result we have made a donation for the defibrillator appeal for the village hall that Joyce is running.
We are still exploring the possibility of a Terry Pratchett play for November, but realistically we need a large cast with more younger people which sadly at this time we don’t have. Therefore we may put on another one act show with a supper again as it was so popular this time.
We hope to read some contenders during the next couple of months.
However this coming Thursday 9th May at 7.30pm we will read a couple of other “Little Grimley” scripts which are very funny.
The following week 16th, we will revisit “Jack of Diamonds” a great comedy which we staged in 2018, if you have a copy of the script please bring it along.
There are a couple of local shows/ screenings that we may go and see. If there’s enough interest I’ll book us some tickets, come along on Thursday there will be more details then.

Thanks...

PS: if you have suggestions for future plays that might appeal to our audience, please let us know...

We'd like to put on a Terry Pratchett "Discworld" play. See >

  Westoning Players offer amateur drama as an entertaining and rewarding leisure hobby for adults. Every show is different. Each show has different needs for the actors, the set constructors, the Back-stage and Front-of-House teams too. And different challenges for the director and producer. We invite you come on down and get involved. Bring a buddy along too.

 

It's good fun. Cheap giggle therapy too!

Please come and see what we are about. We will need to have another show to choose, plan and execute for November 2024. So we need more ACTORS, directors and everybody* else... the more people participating the wider the choice of plays that we can stage...

*All skills & talents are needed including tea-making and empathising, carpentry, electrical, ladder-holding, tantrum management... etc. Ideal for a parent wanting a local outlet to escape for a couple of hours. We can even do job-shares for couples so you can alternate... You owe it to your own mental health.
