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!


We’re planning to meet up and talk scarecrows tomorrow morning at Catherine’s house around 10.30am. Any help very welcome – we’ve got some ideas, but need to translate them into reality.
Leave a message if you need to know where to come.

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!
