Happy new year Players.
It has been a successful year last year, and we are planning more for 2019, including our planned trip to France for our exchange with Les Baladins in April.
For the upcoming week:
- Thursday: please come and assist with tidy up / setting up for next production.
- We have our New year Party on Friday – all invited and any non-paid up members will be £10 on the door. Please bring a bottle to share.
We plan to put on ‘Trivial Pursuit’.
Cast Size 4m, 6f. We have enough men already and need two more women to come forward for either a larger / or smaller parts. We can cast the play but his is the last chance grab a part and join the team going to France!
A summer evening’s barbecue is the setting for a meeting of the Trealaw and District Operatic Society. Next season’s play is to be announced but Nick, the society’s business manager, has promised a different show and the plum roles to four different people. As the evening progresses each character’s foibles and talents are revealed: Joyce, once talented and well meaning, is a lush; Teddy is alternately sweet and strident; Derek is pathetic but lovable. The complex relationships between players emerge as moments of pure slapstick and farce alternate with ones full of real drama and pathos. Not every hitch is resolved, but at the end of this exploration, by turns ironic and serious, of the joys and heartaches of amateur theatrics, the society is intact and its members ready for another season of testing the magic and artifice that is theatre.
Tickets will be available to sell end of January.
