The Players 20th ‘Let Us Be Merry’
Producing the video has involved a huge amount of work, and I would like to thank our Technical Director, Peter Ryan, his Technical Team (Chris Blackwell and Luke Drinkwater), our Musical Director, Keith Mead, and all the performers for the time and effort that has gone into making the video. Without everyone’s drive and enthusiasm for the project, it would not have been possible.
The production is a traditional mix of carols, sketches, songs and readings and we hope that you will enjoy watching it. We are supporting two charities this year: Cheltenham Open Door and the Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospital Charity, both of whom are working hard to support families in this very difficult time. If you enjoy the show, please consider donating via our Just Giving pages (LUBM 2020 Cheltenham Open Door & LUBM 2020 C&G Hospitals).
If you are unable to access YouTube, we are preparing a limited number of DVDs, which you can request by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.
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.
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.
Resuming ‘live’ performance
We will be looking at how best to put on our first ‘live’ production since the restrictions using our usual local venues.
We send our best wishes to our members and supporters. Please keep safe and well.
