Let Us Be Merry 2022 – Saturday 3rd December 2022 at Charlton Kings Junior School 7.30 pm

Kick off your Christmas season with a Christmas show – ‘Let Us Be Merry – A Christmas Celebration’ will put you in the mood for the festive season. With audience carols to sing, sketches, readings and songs sung by local singers and groups, there is something for everyone to enjoy. We will be supporting our local Cheltenham charity Open Door with this production.

Refreshments (including mulled wine and mince pies) will be available for donations and doors open at 7.00 pm. Pay on the door – entrance is £8.00.

Look forward to seeing you there!

 

Call for actors for One Act plays 23/24 February 2023 at CKJS

The Charlton Kings Community Players are producing two one act plays to be performed on 23rd and 24th February 2023 at Charlton Kings Junior School. We are seeking 11 performers to take part.

The plays are both comedies and details of the characters and the scripts are available to read on the Lazy bee website:

‘Rambles on radio’ by Robert Scott (https://www.lazybeescripts.co.uk/Scripts/script.aspx?iSS=2792) directed by Becky Peach

‘All by myself’ by Robert Scott (https://www.lazybeescripts.co.uk/Scripts/script.aspx?iSS=2084) directed by Debbie Dundas and Jane Jones

Although there are a lot of male parts, in most cases, they are not gender specific or age specific, particularly in ‘All by myself’.

Rehearsals for the plays will begin early in the New Year.

If you would like to be considered for a role, please email jbjckcp@gmail.com by 17 November 2022 to register your interest and which part(s) you are particularly interested in. If necessary, we will hold auditions before Christmas.

Play Readings

We’ve been enjoying regular play readings since early in 2020. They’ve given participants
opportunities to try out different character parts, and for the Players to explore new pieces
which could be performed ‘live’.

Our reading of an adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’ has resulted in the issuing
of an audio production as currently advertised. A request out in the community, for
submissions from creative writers for sketches to be performed, resulted in lively and thought-
provoking results. A one act play was also submitted and it is hoped that the Players will be
able to mount a live production in 2022.

The Christmas Show

Last year’s LUBM 2021 video was viewed a significant number of times and raised over £350 for the supported charities through JustGiving. We hope to continue that achievement this year. We hope the afternoon performance might appeal to a wide range of people in the community. This will give an even greater opportunity for fund raising for local
charities. See Forthcoming menu item for further information.
