Wilstead Players’ Newsletter

The Box Office opens on Wednesday the 9th October for our next production – ‘The Lady Vanishes’ – when the performances will be on Friday and Saturday, the 18th and 19th October at 7.30 pm.

The play concerns the mysterious disappearance of a certain passenger on a train and has light comedy moments as well as a bit of drama!  Alfred Hitchcock directed a film of the story in the 1930s and this script was developed from the same book by Ethel Lina White by well-known playwright Derek Webb.

Tickets costing £10.00 may be obtained from the Box Office, 14 Armstrong Close, Wilstead (telephone 01234 740782) from Wednesday the 9th October.

Meanwhile, Charlotte Minards and Pete Tanswell are continuing to run their Drama Workshops for Young Players at Lakeview Village Hall, Wixams, on Thursday evenings.  Telephone 07886 695 151 (Charlotte) or 01234 740782 (Pete) for more details.

Our Friends at Stewartby – the Stewartby Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society – will be performing ‘The Pirates of Penzance’ (or ‘The Slave of Duty’) by W.S Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan, from the 19th to the 23rd November 2019 in Stewartby Village Hall – curtain will be at 7.30 pm.  Tickets are £13.00 (children under sixteen years - £6.50) and can be obtained from the Box Office, telephone 07557 670 703; by email boxoffice@saods.org.uk or online www.saods.org.uk .
