Fly Me! The Synopsis

29th April, 2020

Here is the story we will be telling in Fly Me! Rehearsal are now underway. It will be ready soon.

New Show For Summer 2020

25th April, 2020

We are pleased to announce that we will be bringing our popular 2014 show “Fly Me!” to your ears this summer. We have adapted the show as a radio play. We plan to bring this to you at the end of May, on YouTube.
Judith Foot was able to adapt her script for us in record time. We had a read through, auditions and our first proper rehearsal all without leaving our own homes. We are rehearsing via telephone conference, so a steep learning curve for many of us. But we are rising to the challenge and we are extremely excited that we can bring you a show this summer.
We are dedicating the play to the NHS. Of course, there is no charge to listen to the play, but if you enjoy it and can spare the money, please to donate to the NHS. You can do this at NHS.

Fly Me! Added To The Gallery

April, 2020

We reached back to 2014 for our latest addition to the Gallery.
Fly Me! was the second show written espepcially for The Players by our very own Judith Foot. Such lovely memories. We had such fun on our holiday to Torremolinas.
This is the first Gallery addition which has a link to the original programme.
The Gallery now has photos from all shows from 2015 to 2019.
We will be making the programmes for all shows available online over the next few months.
Well we, like everyone else, certainly have the time at the moment.

SLEEPING BEAUTY by Fred Aylin - 6th December, 2019
This is always the first panto of my Christmas Season and Sleeping Beauty is a lovely one to start with. The story of a Princess being put to sleep for a 100 years and then to be awoken by a Handsome Prince is truly magical.
Nice performances from Sarah Jones and Jess Sacco as Princess Katrina and Prince Stephen. Queen Gotta and King Justa (Matt Shooman and Wendy Clare) completed the Princess’ family not forgetting Mandie Fairhall as Prince Arfer, who to me, stole the show with her performance of this character!
Lynn Enever as Teresa was a great companion for the Princess and the wicked Wazere, looking and sounding very evil, was expertly played by Georgie Bancroft and fun ensued from the comedy pair Lord Now and Lady Then played by Ian Sander-Cawley and Judith Foot. Judith also wrote the opening song “Welcome to our Pantomime” which got things off with a swing.
A lot of good work also from the rest of the cast, including the smaller parts and, of course, the villagers and frogs.
We were treated to a good deal of expert dancing from the Harlequin Dance Studio Dancers using many styles of dance and always looking well turned out in their costumes.
The scenery was ideal and the use of the clocks in scenery and costumes in the setting of the Kingdom of Inajiffy was a lovely touch.
There was excellent accompaniment from Ricky Horscraft and his Show Band who also musically directed. All those backstage workers made everything work well with Michele Harden as Stage Manager and many thanks to Tony Garwood (Director) and his Assistant Directors Mandie Fairhall and Michelle Roman for kicking off the Panto Season in style.
