Our next production details

Forum Players are very excited to announce our next production, which will be the story of Don Quixote. We have a new Director joining us from Chinnor Players & this will be an exciting collaboration.

The author, Aaron Khan, is a teacher of history & literature at Oxford. He is also literature project lead with the European Commission & Forum Players will help to bring this venture (and adventure!) with the European Commission, to life.

Details of script readings & auditions will follow shortly. This is being planned as a ‘rehearsed reading’ production, so there will be less pressure on you to learn lines. We have flexibility with this script, and we will be pleased to welcome as many of you as possible who would like to be involved. If you have any questions or would like to know more, please add comments to this post or email/PM me directly.

Rehearsals will commence on Monday 20th May & will be on Monday & Thursday evenings. This is a break from our Wednesday evening tradition, for this production only.

More praise for Aladdin.

Just been to Aladdin at the Community Centre and I have to say it was brilliant! We went to the Wycombe Swan a few weeks ago and by comparison they were the amateurs. As a former member of Forum Players I have taken part in a few cringe worthy productions but this was not one of them. If you get a chance don’t miss it!!!!

Great Feedback from our 1st performance

“It is a brilliant production of the highest standard as always and very witty. It is great to see so many local youngsters on the stage and  you are enthralled for a couple of hours. Please go and support their hard work.”

Hello to all members

Panto rehearsals for our 50th Anniversary are well under way.  I wish to extend a very warm welcome to all of our new members, we are so pleased to have you on board!

We will be celebrating our 50th pantomime is style, to recognize the achievement of reaching our 50th year!


As well as cast rehearsals, we are also busy with building the sets, creating the artwork and the band (The Bourne End Shadows) are also very busy rehearsing the new song numbers.  AJ Gibson and her musical theatre students are also hard at work learning songs and dance numbers as they make preparations to join us again this year.


The next focus for us will be making costumes…

Whilst we do have our own extensive costume wardrobe, we do find each year that more specific costumes are required in order to create the correct period/locations.  We have therefore order lots of fabulous fabrics for our annual sewing day. This year we have set the date of Sunday 25th November.  Whilst we do have some volunteers to join us, we would appreciate some more help.  “Many hands make light work” as they say.  Therefore is you are able to help, please let either myself or Tracey Huxley know (Tracey is the Forum Players Wardrobe Mistress)…You will find our contact email addresses on this email. Come along and bring a friend if you know anytime who would be interested to do some sewing.  In preparation for the day, we cut out the fabric pieces ready to start stitching.  Anytime between 10am and 3pm would be great.  Lunch is included.

With the festive season just around the corner, Forum Players will be supporting the festive events being held at Claytons School in Flackwell Heath, and the Bourne End Christmas evening (7th December).  Committee member Fiona Russell will be manning the stalls, and she has a ‘guess the Panda’ game for people to have some fun with, the prize being a cute Panda soft toy.  The Panda features in our panto, therefore If you are attending either of these events, please go and find Fiona to take part.
Have a great week and hope to see you all soon.
Kind regardsKerry
Chairman, Forum Players
