URGENT NEWS ABOUT THIS YEAR'S PANTO
This year's panto is due to run from Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th December. Rehearsals would normally start in mid-September following the play. This year we have some issues: specifically some members have moved on to other activities and are not available and our panto producer will be absent for some of the rehearsal period.
We have contacted members and friends of the society today to ask EVERYONE to indicate their availability for ALL ROLES - on and off stage - by MIDNIGHT SUNDAY 13 AUGUST. This will enable us to assess if it is possible for the panto to go ahead or not this year. We are asking members new and old to indicate what roles they are able to commit to this year. We are looking for people for:
•Helping to "Direct" rehearsals, either when the producer isn't available, or working alongside, rehearsing separate small groups doing songs or comedy routines, for example
•Making scenery and props
•Costumes - designing, borrowing, hiring, buying, making
•Publicity, programme etc
•Sound, lighting, projection - preparing things and setting up
•Sound, lighting, projection - during the actual shows
•Chaperoning the children during panto week
•Front of House stewarding etc
•Refreshments on play-days
And any other roles that we might have missed!
