30th Anniversary Bash

 

What a night we had! Over 40 members congregated at The Galtres Centre on 26 October, fine food, chatter, lots of laughter, tears and memories.

 

If I had a £1 for every time I heard someone say, “Do you remember when...” I’d be a rich man!

 

Thank you to all who helped and all who came along, although the biggest thank you of all to Barbara Topping, for starting the company all those years ago.

 

Here’s to the next thirty years!

 

Friends on Stage

 

The week after Happy Families, Bromwyn Jennison and James Potter are in Scrooge in York with Pick Me Up Theatre. It’s a show full of hummable numbers and a real feel good show.

If you remember the 1972 Albert Finley movie you’ll know “Thank you very much, thank you very much, that’s the nicest thing that anyone’s ever done for me...!”

 

Happy Families 

 

The show is getting ever closer; lines are learnt, moves memorised, costumes fitted, so here we go!

 

The show runs Wednesday 20 - Saturday 23 November, nightly at 7.30pm at The Galtres Centre.

 

Come along and laugh and perhaps shed a tear too! 

 

Spring 2020

 

As you know I’m having some time out and our friends Jonathan Lewis and Amanda Gentry, (our choreographer from Ring round the moon and Blame it on The Kaiser) have very kindly offered to direct together, the following play for Spring:

 

THE GLASS MENAGERIE by Tennessee Williams

Other bits and bobs

The technical side of the Galtres is considering various improvements and we are planning an open night for possible new directors and actors in February, watch this space!
