Bourne End Community Centre
We meet most Mondays and Wednesdays at 8pm
We are a friendly club, who celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2008, and 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.
We need two artists easels for the production of ‘Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders’
Please can anyone help? If so. I’d love to hear from you. My e-mail address is:-
As some of you are aware there have been considerable problems with Agatha Crusty, a number of which have been due to excessive and unexpected work difficulties for some members. At present we have no set and although this is extremely simple and straightforward we need people to help make it happen. Can you possibly help on Sunday (27th) from 10am for a couple of hours. Please could you let me know asap if you can so I know how many chocolate biscuits I need!
As the year progresses we are now looking at the Panto and Jill Dady and Jill Hyde have a script for Peter Pan that they would like to submit to the club.
To this end we have organised a reading on Tuesday 22nd August in the small hall at the community centre.
Please come down and read this show and support the club.
Something strange is happening in the sleepy village of Chortleby as one by one members of the Village Hall committee are bumped off.
Enter Agatha Crusty (pronounced Croo-sty) to aid the hapless and hopeless Detective Inspector Twigg solve the case.
With more murders than Midsomer and a policeman as clueless as Clouseau this play will have you laughing all the way through while you try to determine whodunnit.
Things kick off at the Community Centre, Wakeman Road, Bourne End on 20th September with a free showing for senior citizens, followed by further performances on 22nd and 23rd September, all starting at 8pm.
Tickets are £9 with concessions at £7, available from 19 August from Bourne End Library or by calling 01628 523291.
We have been approached to see if we could provide a Murder Mystery at a dinner at Marlow Masonic Centre on Saturday 18th November. I have found a script called ‘Downton Crabbey’ It only needs 1 man and 3 women and the scripted part is only 15 minutes. Audience interrogation is obviously improvised.
What’s the Mystery Here?
London, around 1900. A Hotel Inspector is due to inspect Downtown Crabbey, a hotel designed for young American travellers to feel at home in London. In the dining room, his arrival is causing something of a panic, there we find
Roberta Crawley the Dowager Countess of Gravenshire
Murphy Crawley her American nephew
Meryl Patmore the Cook
Maisy Robinson the Scullery Maid
Whilst Countess Roberta and her nephew are worried about the inspection, the cook and maid have something far more important on their minds: a fork has gone missing
Can I ask if anyone would be interested in taking part in this. A donation will be made to Club funds and the beauty of this script, apart from the small cast, is that it has multiple solutions so could be used for another occasion.
I need to give the organizer an answer yes or no very quickly so that he can look elsewhere if we can’t do it so if you could let me know by e-mail asap if you are interested I would be very grateful.
Please note the date for the volunteers day to clean, tidy and paint areas around the centre in 17th September 2017. This is also the time they will have the skip etc so our only opportunity to get rid of STUFF!
If people are around the help sort and clear out then please let me know
This is a request for help with a couple of Agatha Crusty rehearsals.
Wendy is away 19th and 24th July if anyone is available to take the rehearsal on her behalf could you contact either myself of Wendy directly
Following up on this Leigh has sourced a voice coach who could run an evening workshop for us in late October focusing on voice projection.
As this is an external coach the club would need to pay for this and we will only proceed if there is enough interest and commitment from the membership.
Therefore can you please confirm if you are interested in attending this workshop, and if there is enough interest then we will look to book.
