Hello everyone

I wanted to keep you updated as we progress towards the summer. Club members, in collaboration with Chinnor Players, are busy in rehearsals for…

For those of you following us on Facebook, you will have seen the various posts and updates regarding this production. Rehearsals are well under way and we are fast approaching the performance dates, which are the 4th, 5th & 6th of July. I am part of the cast, as the narrator in Act 2. The script has lots of comedy and has been great fun to be a part of. We have all been in fits of laughter on a regular basis!

This production is supported and funded by the European Commission, Q Theatre, and therefore we are able to offer free admission on each of the performance nights. We would love to see you there and I have attached the poster which gives more details of dates, venue, times etc. To help us manage numbers, please telephone Leigh Robinson on the number included on the poster attached, or alternatively you can reserve seats online using the following link:

Pantomime!

I am pleased to announce that we have a director for our next Pantomime, club member Gavin Mills. We are reviewing scripts and there will be club evenings in July & August to read through the proposed script and share comments. This will then be followed by auditions. It would be great to welcome you to the read through and hopefully to join us for this next Panto. More details, dates and times, to follow…

Member news…

One of our club members, Wendy Keeble, is also a member of Wycombe Philharmonic Choir. They have a summer performance on Saturday 13th July, all welcome. Please see the leaflet attached for further details.

As always, if anyone has any questions, feedback or would like more information about the club, future plan and performances, please don’t hesitate to contact me or a member of the committee.

Dear members

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.

Kind regards

Kerry

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!!!!
