Apologies Joe Battye

Karen Slater has recently resigned from the committee

Murdered to Death
A healthy profit was reported.
Feedback from the director was very positive and Jane is rightly very proud of the show in general, the feedback she has received and the fantastic performance of the actors.  A negative was regarding poor rehearsal attendances and the disruption this caused. 

Poor Attendance at Rehearsals
The committee would like to emphasise this to all members and that participants in future productions must fully commit to attending as many rehearsals as possible and if unable to attend, the responsibility on providing a stand-in is wholly and fully theirs and not anyone else’s.  In future, the Trin will intervene when circumstances demand, to support the director in this area.

Committee Member Required
Karen has sadly resigned from the committee and we are keen to invite a replacement.  The main duty of applicants would be around the marketing area as we realise that this is key to the success of the Trin.

Raffle Prizes
We agreed to set a budget for prizes for forthcoming shows and will produce a shopping list for shows.  It was agreed to set raffle tickets at £1 per strip

Play Dates
Dates were set for Spring: 22nd to 25th April 2020, Summer; 15th to 19th July 2020 and Autumn; 7th to 10th October 2020.  The Spring play is already set and will be directed by Helen Watson.   Applications are welcome for the Summer and Autumn sets.  Both plays and directors.  Please email the committee directly.  You will be asked to join us at a meeting to discuss your ideas.  PLEASE DO NOT discuss it with Bob in the pub and expect it to happen 🙂

Front of House
We do need more people to come forward and volunteer for FoH duties.  If you or any of your friends would like to assist, it’s open to anyone and really is quite rewarding

Panto – Aladdin 2020
We will be doing 8 shows at the Panto this year
There will be an after-show party the week following the Panto – set the date!
We are building a friends email list for contact with the Panto mums, etc
We have a number of chaperones but need more.  If you would like to volunteer, we will pay for your certification.  Apply to Ruth Willerton
