It has been a busy summer for the Forum Players Committee. We would like to share the details of the upcoming events and performances in the planning..
It’s getting close to Panto time…oh yes it is 😊
We are very pleased to be able to confirm that our January 2019 Pantomime will be ‘Aladdin’, which has now been cast and rehearsals will begin on Monday 8th October. This will be the 50th Pantomime for Forum Players and we are very excited to celebrate our 50 year anniversary during the show run. Wendy Keeble will direct, with me as co-director.
We are really excited to be joined by new members who bring an incredible mix of experience from other groups, as well as some of our current members stepping into Principal roles, making this a very strong cast.
We still have room for people to join in the Chorus and also, we would appreciate help from anyone with time to spare in terms of costume making, stage set building, painting etc. When we get closer to the show dates, we will also be reaching out for support in the Stage Crew team, front of house etc. Please contact myself or Wendy to discuss.
Wardrobe Clear – 14th October:
Ahead of planning the costumes required for Pantomime, we would like to have our annual Costume Wardrobe clear out on Sunday 14th October. We will start at 10am and hopefully this will just take a couple of hours. Tracey Huxley, our Wardrobe mistress, would appreciate help with this task. Many hands make light work as the saying goes. Please come and join us, I will have the kettle on, with cakes and biscuits at the ready to help us along.
Bourne End community Christmas Festive Evening:
As many of you will know, Bourne End has its annual Christmas festival evening in early December, where all local business and community groups get involved to help spread the Festive cheer. Forum Players will get involved on the evening to share our Panto excitement with all. Watch this space for more details.
50th Anniversary Celebrations:
In my last newsletter I mentioned plans for a celebration evening in September, unfortunately due to circumstance beyond our control, this was not able to go ahead. However we do plan to celebrate this golden anniversary as part of the 50th Pantomime celebrations, and we hope that many of you will be able to join us at one of the panto performances.
If you have any suggestions for future performances, would like to Direct or get involved with stage sets, etc, please drop a line of either myself or any member of the committee.
Chairman, Forum Players
