February newsletter

With the vaccine programme ramping up, we plan to continue to run zoom sessions until at least April, then hopefully we can at last meet up for some social interaction. Then we plan to start rehearsals from September for a November production which is looking far more promising now – we have some unfinished business here!

The current short term plan is to make two recordings: a Murder Mystery from Gloria and a Saki short story adapted by Andrew. These will be interspersed with Club Nights. All zoom calls start at 8.00pm, on the usual link below. If you did not have a chance to join any of our events over the past year, then look at the Events page where links to replays are available. The post-production work is being completed on Best Laid Plans from last month by Andy – we may need a couple of out-takes as well once reviewed in detail – it is usually interference from background noises that needs to be corrected. It was great to have some new voices joining us for Best Laid Plans (see the cast list in the January newsletter).

The Easter Egg by Saki has been adapted for radio by Andrew Stafford – thanks Andrew. We need to cast six people, so please join us on Tuesday; let’s enjoy the new piece then, and make a recording the following week. Should be fun! We also have the opportunity  to record another murder mystery at the end of the month, which is being prepared by Gloria.
