Emergency Meeting Update

All

Firstly a big thank you to everyone who could attend last night and to those who couldn’t be there put forward suggestions and ideas.

I think we came away we a good selection of ideas both short and long term that we can use to take the club forward.

First and foremost as interest in an autumn production was so strong we are going to read Agatha Crusty (kindly put forward by Wendy) Monday 12th June at 8pm in the small hall. Please come down and read / support the club even if you cannot take part in the show.

With regards to the other suggestions the committee are going to meet to review and prioritise and we will set another meeting for around a months time so we can discuss and ensure we are continuing to move forward.

Show Date

Autumn Show Dress Rehearsal – 17th September

Autumn Show – 18th – 23rd September

Autumn Show Clear Up – 24th September

Thanks again

Your Chairman

EMERGENCY MEETING 5th June

All

Over the past couple of years the Forum have suffered from declining membership and active participation. The result of this is that we have only really been doing panto for 3 years and we have struggled to cast each time.

The lack of participation / interest in an autumn show, followed by not a great take up on the spring show, has now brought this to a head. Especially as there is considerable doubt about whether we can cast a panto for 2018, and as yet have had no-one showing any interest in putting forward a script to direct.

Given this the committee have decided that we need to hold and an emergency members meeting for the club on Monday 5th June in the small hall. This meeting is for everyone to come with ideas and thoughts about how we should be taking the club forward. This can be as wider ranging as you want (remember this is your club) and we can cover, number and timings of shows, how often we meet, what people want to see as part of meetings, etc.

I cannot stress that we need everyone to attend, even if you do not want to take an active role in the club we need your help. I hope that I don’t need to point out that if we cannot put on a panto in 2018 then the Forum Players will fold.

Refreshments will be provided so please RSVP to confirm that you are attending by emailing chairman@forumplayers.com

If you cannot attend but have ideas / thoughts please send to me in advance.

Thanks in advance for your support

Your Chairman
Ros Bartlett

April 2017 Newsletter

Message from HQ
Happy Easter and welcome to the April newsletter, I hope you are all looking forward to a chocolate indulgence over the next few days.

Festivals and Fetes

As we move towards summer the season for summer and school fete’s begins.

I am keen that we participate in as many things as possible so that we can ensure the local community does not forget us and to increase our membership. This would hopefully mean the ability to do more productions and have larger audiences.

If you are available to volunteer for running a stall at a fete please contact the committee, I have include the date of the Wooburn Green Village Fete below.

Autumn Production

As we were unable to cast a spring production it is doubly important that we make every effort to put on a show in September.

As such we have scheduled a read of any potential shows for autumn on the 8th May. If you would like to put a show forward or want to participate but cannot attend the read then please let the committee know.

Otherwise I look forward to seeing you all on the 8th May, in the small hall.

 Membership

The final thing is a gentle reminder the annual subs are now due. Please send payments to myself, Leigh or Jessica, thanks.

That’s all for this month

Your Chairman

Ros Bartlett

February 2017 Newsletter

Message from HQ

Welcome to the February newsletter, I hope everyone is having a good start to 2017.

Panto

January saw the Forum put on our annual panto, this year Babes in the Wood. This was a great success with everyone’s efforts being fully appreciated by our audiences.   I would like to thank everyone for all of their hard work and hope everyone had a good time.

Spring Production

During February we read 2 good plays as potentials for a spring production. However as many people are unavailable for a full show we cannot cast these at this time.   However it would be good to do something during spring or over the summer. If anyone has any thoughts, suggestions or ideas about what we could do, please contact the committee.

Festivals and Fetes

As we move towards summer, I know it still fees like winter, the season for drama festivals and summer fete’s begins.   I am keen that we participate in as many things as possible so that we can ensure the local community does not forget us and to increase our membership.

We have received some information on the Henley Drama festival, which runs 1st – 5th May. This is for one act plays and if anyone is interested in putting something forward for this please contact the committee, entries are due into the festival by 31st March.   For any other ideas or volunteers for fetes etc please contact the committee.

Membership

We have been lucky over the past few months with new members joining and taking a active part in this years panto. This is a trend that we hope to continue so if you know anyone who would like to join the Forum Players then please send on their details, or ask them to follow us on Twitter, Instagram or join the Facebook group.

That’s all for this month

Your Chairman
Ros Bartlett

Happy new-year to everyone, I hope that you all had a great festive period and are enjoying the start to 2017.

Panto

January can only mean one thing at the Forum Players and that’s Panto.

Everyone has been working hard getting ready and we are down to the last rehearsal before showtime.   As usual we are always looking for people to help during the shows so if anyone is available then please let Wendy know.

Panto tickets are on sale in the library and we are hoping for lots of people. Please come down and show your support.

Spring Production

Even though we are in the thick of panto thoughts are already turning to our next potential show in spring.   Once panto is complete the first step is to read through any potential shows that people want to put forward.

The date for the reads is 6th February.   If you want to put forward a show please let us know, if not please come down to the Centre to support and read.

AGM

As the year comes to a close we will be holding our AGM. The date penciled in for this is 30th January. As always we will be electing the committee at this meeting, if you are interested in joining please let Leigh know.
