Looking back on a successful 2016 and forward to a busy 2017.
Richard III was a huge critical success, despite keeping the audience in freezing conditions for 3 hours with only mulled wine and hope to sustain them, everyone loved the show.
We managed to donate £147.42 to the homeless charity Emmaus, for which they were very grateful, and still ended up with a small surplus of just over £100. So well done to all involved.
Upcoming in 2017 we have, first up, Tom Francis directing Howard Brenton’s play ‘Magnificence’ at the Shoe Factory in June. In advance of auditions for this, we are planning a read through of the play on Friday 13th January (at a venue to be finalised)
All are welcome, but please email Tom Francis (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let him know if you want to come along.
Auditions themselves will be held towards the end of February.
Later in the summer Tim Lane and Panda will be taking charge of a new production of ‘The Transports’, to be performed as an outdoors tour in August. Details of auditions etc to follow.
We have a few other bits and pieces bubbling under, including a possible devised show based on a stash of playscripts donated by a random taxi driver and the possibility of a sponsorship deal with a local business.
We will have our AGM at 8pm on Tuesday 10th January at Jurnets bar at Wensum Lodge in Norwich, as ever, all are welcome, and anyone wishing to stand for the committee should email me (email@example.com)
Have a lovely Xmas everyone, and hope to see lot’s of you in the new year
