November production

‘Mystery at Greenfingers’ – interim rehearsal schedule.

Rehearsals are going swimmingly, with the cast getting to grips with all the entrances and exits they are required to make. It’s a very busy staffroom at Greenfingers Palace Hotel! Up to now we are concentrating on who sits on which chair – anyone turning up late to rehearsal may find their seat taken.  It’s a crowded stage! But we are now seeing the emergence of the diverse characters and, once books are down, the comedy element and the action will really hot up!

Our backstage crew have worked hard to create an interesting and practical set and, once we start to use our props, the whole play will really take shape.

The Director thanks all involved for their enthusiasm, commitment and patience – and hopes that the post-rehearsal Thursday sociable half-hour makes up for all their hard work so far!!

Tuesday 1 October – Repeat of Act II (pp.65-112)

Video back stage
For the next production onwards we will have two stage cameras to relay video to back stage and actors waiting to go on. This has been requested a number of times – great for tracking exits/entrances. Many thanks to Brian for arranging this. We will be testing the system during rehearsals once the set has been completed and see what works / does not work.

Marlow FM

Some great work led by David Choules with Gloria on Marlow FM radio station to feature the Marlow Players and start promoting the show. They had some interview chat and featured a recording of a Murder Mystery. He hopes to run further features in November.
