The play is now fully cast with extra volunteers available and includes 2 new members with another interested in participating in further productions.
Graham Myers is also going to shadow the director with a view to directing future plays and we are encouraging further shadowing to give members a chance to direct and expand the pool of available directors.
Cinderella, The Panto

The Box Office will be available soon
Ticket prices are to stay the same (£7-£6) plus 2 for 1 on the first night and a family ticket (2 adults +2 kids)
We will enforce a policy of no refunds as is the norm for theatre tickets although we will be flexible on a case by case basis.
Concerns were raised over audience/family/etc coming backstage and into the changing area.
Some laminated sheets are required for the new refund policy, advising that noone except cast and crew should be backstage and info on raffle ticket sales
It was decided that Front of House should be 4 people minimum
We need to see how many children are involved before inviting more. If we have too many, we may split the kids into two groups. TBC.
The process for arranging and proof reading material was confirmed :-
All artwork and material for printing will be sent to Jane Laverack. There should be no printing without sign off from Jane as we’ve seen some typos slip through the net recently causing unnecessary cost.
Jane will send round the committee for proof reading and comment.
And then send to Neil for the banner, Dale for the website, Zena for Facebook and to the printers for posters and programmes.
It was decided to re-design the programme with a permanent front cover and the usual 8 page insert for the current production. Simon Anderson Funeral Directors has agreed to sponsor the printing costs.
In future, any sponsors should have 4 complimentary tickets and an advert in the programme.
A carpet has been fitted to rear of stage. More is being fitted this week to the side of the stage area.
Neil and Jim have investigated card transactions for processing ticket sales. It was decided to look into it for the future
Xmas Party – Bob and Ruth have volunteered to organise this. It was decided to go for a posh pub on Friday 8th or 15th December – save the date – well one of them anyway.
