We are a friendly club, and we celebrate our 50th anniversary this year.
We try to put on two plays or revues and a pantomime each year.
We meet most Mondays and Wednesdays at 8.00pm at the Bourne End Community Centre.
We have a good sized stage and have a large scene dock to store flats and props, which allows us to build our own sets.
Anyone is welcome to join our club, you don’t have to act as there are plenty of backstage, front of house roles.
After a very successful pantomime, I am pleased to share with you all that we raised an incredible £503 for the Alexander Devine children’s hospice. Thank you to everyone for helping to make this happen. We have received a lovely letter of thanks from the charity, attached to this email for you to read.
The Forum committee have been busy looking at scripts, speaking to potential directors & planning ahead for 2019 & 2020 productions.
We have received a great variety of scripts & I am pleased to say that our next production will be ‘Wandering Through La Mancha, a Quixotic Tale’. With support & project funding provided by the European Commission about the story of Don Quixote, we will have a preview/read through this exciting script on Wednesday 17th April.
Auditions will be after the Easter bank holiday weekend, dates to follow. Rehearsals commence on Monday 20th May and then on Thursdays, which is a slight change to our usual Monday & Wednesday routine, for this production only. Performances will be in the evening of 4, 5 & 6 July at Bourne End Community Centre theatre.
Watch this space for a possible autumn production & of course, details to follow of our annual pantomime.
Our very own Wendy Keeble will be singing with the Wycombe Philharmonic Choir next Saturday, 13 April.
Hope to see many of you at next weeks preview & reading for Don Quixote.
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.

Cast & Creative Team of Aladdin sharing a well deserved drink after the last show last night. Here’s to another 50 years of amateur theatre! ?
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!!!!
“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.”
Happy New Year!

In this season’s panto will the dastardly Abanazzar secure all the riches and power that he craves or will Aladdin win the day (and the heart of the Princess Jasmine)? All the usual slapstick, laughs and musical numbers in this … Continue reading
