Newsletter No. 407 – June 2017

Dear Members,

Hopefully you are all enjoying the beautiful sunshine that June has to offer. For those green fingered amongst us we also welcome the rain. I have had a wonderful weekend visiting some of the beautiful gardens in Ewhurst where I bumped into many of our members.


A massive thank you and well done to everyone involved – it was a huge success and the Players delivered yet again in true style. We were very pleased that we are able to donate £600 collected from the raffle and bar to Meg’s chosen charity ‘Parkinsons’.

November Production – Death and the Maiden

George was very pleased with the turn out and has cast the play as follows:

Paulina – Izzy McLean [Welcome back]
Gerardo – Simon Fraser [Nice to see you on stage performing away from the ivories]
Doctor – Ben Aveyard [Some type casting I think]

We look forward to seeing this powerful production come to life. As always we will be in need of support from the members. Many positions to fill backstage, so if you feel you would like to help out in any way please contact George 277354 or Chris 272378.

SOCIAL EVENT – Rattigan’s – The Deep Blue Sea @ The Mill Theatre Guildford – Friday 16th June

This event is still taking place – not too late to book your ticket so please do so ASAP.

If you are coming please email CHRIS DEWS (see email address above) just so that we have an idea of who is meeting at the boozer. Tickets are selling so you will need to be quick. Link below.
