Covid 19 – An update from the Community Players
Since April groups of people have met using the video conferencing tool Zoom for play readings. We’ve enjoyed an amazing range of plays from Shakespeare, to traditional pantomime, and in August an adaption written in 1906 of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’ was an opportunity for individuals to try their hand at various character parts.
The Players 20th ‘Let Us Be Merry’
Our thoughts are now turned towards our usual Christmas show ‘Let Us Be Merry’. The committee has decided we will be producing a digital LUBM this year with a release date of 6 December 2020. Planning has started so keep an eye out for our emails with more information. This will be an exciting new venture providing all kinds of opportunities for participation. Here is the link to the Backing Tracks
Recent ones are available from this web site and our latest was in April this year which brings you up to date with our recent productions.
