Trinity Players’ Newsletter April 2022

Hi All,
Despite the problems of the last two years we have already put on two great shows already this year:-

Oh no, It’s not the Panto Trinity Juniors and Trinity Adults… produced an alternative to the Panto This went down really well to the packed house with dances and songs that would have been in the panto as well as random sketches and jokes. Great fun for cast, crew and audience.

Joe Battye may well be tempted to repeat this type of show in 2023!

Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of Macbeth
The show finally went ahead in March! After numerous twists, turns and re-scheduling.
Very well received by the small but enthusiastic returning audiences.

Helen Watson got the best out of the much changed cast and the special effects were … special. Flying daggers, dismembered body parts and sometimes smoke added to an unforgettable show.

Much praise to our technical team – Jim, Neil and Malcolm with a special mention to Evie from the juniors who stepped into 3 parts at short notice.  (we also raised £136 for Ukraine)
