Gloria directed two amazing performances of Shooting at Friendly Film Studios in September and October: the first at the Upper Thames Sailing Club at Bourne End, to a most enthusiastic crowd and then we played to a packed Liston Hall in October. Well done to the team, and particularly to the publicity, who produced posters which went up around the town, and managed to contact other organisations who turned up (W.I.; Marlow Operatic, the Community Association etc.
We are now looking forward to our performance of Murder in an Ice Cold Manner at The Royal Oak, Bovingdon Green now scheduled for Thursday, 30th November. The arrangements were changed by the owner, as they decided to close on Tuesday nights. This has meant that some of the actors can no longer be available, and we are looking for a few new people to fill in the gaps. Like our other Murder Mysteries, this is presented as a live “radio show” so the scripts are read: no lines to learn by heart, though of course they are rehearsed to our usual high standards. Please let us know via our website and email if you are interested in joining in. This should be a really fun evening in a new venue!
Tuesdays in November: 7th, 14th, 21st 28th and the performance from 8 pm on Thursday 30th.
TUESDAY 31ST OCTOBER: HALLOWE’EN SOCIAL
IN THE SPIDERY* STUDIO!!

This is our new venue, and the facility is superb! The staff are very supportive, we get an excellent and well-equipped stage and loads of room to change, plus a side hall for teas and coffees.
We shall need Front of House Staff and backstage: assistants for sound effects, lights and props, oh- and a few actors and a director!
Les Baladins will be coming over to spend the weekend with us Friday 24th May to Sunday 26th performing at “La Nonna” at Great Marlow School on Saturday 25th May. They have won numerous awards for this show in Drama festivals throughout France and it features some of their longest serving actors, all old friends, as well as some newer faces. We will be asking for accommodation in the new year, so please NOBODY GO ON HOLIDAY THAT WEEKEND: WE NEED ALL BEDS WE CAN GET!
