Fig Leaves looking great!

We popped into the final dress rehearsals last night, stage looks fantastic as always (great work crew) and the play is really comical.

Some brilliant characters and parts, story worked very well too. Tickets are still available online from the Box Office, or in person from Southern Cross Travel in Wadhurst high street.

Come along, support the community, enjoy some drinks & eats and have a great night out to boot!

Pirates have sailed in the sunset

It’s all over for now!! What laughs we had – Widow Twankey’s skirt, all those custard pies, skeletons in the closet. Hopefully, the audience enjoyed it as much as we did. Thanks to everyone who contributed in so many different ways – see you in May!! If you’d like to be involved, get in contact, we always love new faces, new ideas, new talent, new pairs of hands!!!

Blackadder goes on stage!!

Excellent first week’s run of Blackadder II – Beer, Potato & Head elicited lots of giggles and guffaws on Thurs, Fri and Sat this week. A few minor hiccups just added to the general glee. Come and brighten a dark Feb evening this week with Queenie, Percy, Baldrick, Melchett and Blackadder himself. Tickets only £10 including scrummy food served to you with a smile (usually). Buy online for Thurs 3rd, Fri 4th or Sat 5th Feb or call in at Carillon Cottage. Alternatively you can ring Juliet on 01580 201883. Don’t miss it!!!!!

Production Approaches !

Only a few weeks to go now and things are going great.
Rehearsals continued over the Christmas period and both cast and crew are getting excited. Costumes are well underway and we’re all looking forward to moving into the Commemoration Hall for rehearsals so we can start treading the boards on the stage!
Posters are out and tickets are selling well. No time for nerves yet!

Blackadder laughs

Good read thro’ last night – a little bevy of potential new performers turned up and were really good, which made it more fun. Lots of laughs just reading thro’ ‘Head’ & ‘Potato’. Hope to see lots of potential Blackadders on Saturday at the auditions at the Methodist from 10am onwards …. and Percys …and Queenies…and Melchetts…and, of course, Baldricks.
Come and have a giggle!

Congrats to WYTKIDZ!

The Witches was brill – great fun and huge hard work and very impressive. It was great to have David Wood (the play’s creator from the Roald Dahl original) in the audience on Saturday night, even better that he came up on the stage at the end and addressed the kids and the audience – and even better that Wendy has persuaded him to be Patron of Wytkidz. He loved the show and had fun with the kids so is looking forward to being involved. A stroke of genius Wendy, well done!
