Players we are now planning the next spring production – A Bunch of Amateurs by Ian Hislop. The committee have looked at a few new potential venues (schools, churches etc) as the Shelly is now too expensive and settled on Great Marlow School hall theatre, which is available to hire in the school holidays and has good facilities. Dates for the production are 14-16 April. We will use the same cast as before as much as possible, with changes for those who cannot make the new dates. We also have dates for the production to travel to Marly-le-Roi 13 May weekend, so that needs to planned now.
