The AGM for 2017 will be held at the Little Theatre at 7.30pm on Tuesday 12th September 2017.
All members are encouraged to attend.
Everyone is invited to take part in reading of extracts from our next play Entertaining Angels by Richard Everett.
‘I’ve poured two hundred thousand cups of tea, made four thousand six hundred medium-sized quiches and personally baked two tons of light crust pastry. And for what?’
As a clergy wife Grace has spent a lifetime on best behaviour. Now, following the death of her husband Bardolph, she is enjoying the new-found freedom of being able to do and say exactly as she pleases. But the return of her eccentric missionary sister, Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations forces Grace to confront the truth of her marriage. Set in a classic English vicarage garden complete with a grass-banked stream and willow, the play is filled with sharp-edged comedy and probing wit.
If you would like to be considered for a part which consists of 4 females (ages 30 – 60) and 1 male (age 60’s) please come along or contact the Little Theatre to register your interest.
Volunteers Required – members, patrons, non-members
It’s that time of year again when the cupboards, sheds and shelves of the Little Theatre Cleadon need to be sorted and items disposed of.
A skip is on order but we need help to pull everything out to see what we have and what we need to dispose of.
If you can come along Friday 7th July 5 o’clock onwards and help out, it would be much appreciated.
Old clothing and gloves will be required.
See you there
