COMING UP

Ewhurst Players Social evening

Thursday 15th July 2021

By the time we get to July, hopefully all the regulations regarding social distancing will have been relaxed. So, we thought it might be a nice idea to hold a social evening in the Village Hall. A few glasses of wine, a few nibbles, the opportunity to catch up with people face-to-face. Sounds crazy I know, but please put the date in your diary. 


COMING UP

Ewhurst Carnival
Saturday 7th August 2021
12 noon until 4.30pm

 

Alas, there is no procession this year, but the Ewhurst Players have a big role to play at this year’s Carnival. The theme, me hearties, is Pirates.

 

  • We will be creating a desert island on the rec, complete with palm tree, pirate ship and treasure chest.

  • We will be running a couple of treasure hunts for the children (one for the tinies, one for the slightly older ones). We will need volunteers to help run these.

  • Every half an hour we will be putting on a small performance on the ‘island’. This might be singing a sea shanty or performing a short sketch, so we need actors/singers who are willing to step up and do a bit of entertaining (and learning a few lines).

  • Between performances, we’d like to have a bit of activity going on on the island: two pirates practising sword fighting; teaching each other to walk the plank; teaching people to speak pirate, that sort of thing. (Ideas welcome!) The thinking is there’s no point putting a lot of effort into building an island if it gets ignored most of the time.

  • We will also be contributing to the Open Mic event: a couple of sea shanties; a reprise of some songs from Oliver! perhaps. Again, ideas welcome. 

  • Of course, we will want all Ewhurst Players to dress as pirates. Eye patches, peg legs, parrots. You know the drill.

 

All in all, we probably want about 12-15 volunteers. We will be holding a briefing/rehearsal session (two if need be) in July.
