Planning the way forward
The Community Players have been adapting ways of working together to
provide local entertainment in the future. We consider it so important that
people are able to interact, chat, and participate in creative activities, given
the current situation the world faces through the Covid-19 pandemic.
On-line play readings: Over April and May there have been play
readings using the video conferencing tool Zoom, which have been attracting
an increasing number of participants. It’s great fun so if you fancy taking part
keep an eye out for invitations to attend. This is theatre with a difference!
Plays read so far are ‘Audience’ by Michael Frayn, ‘Dracula The Final
Countdown?’ by Geoff Bamber, ‘The ghosts of Marvin Grange‘ by Richard
Newsletter: We published a newsletter in April which covers the
productions we put on in 2019, and brought you up to date with other news.
It’s available for download from this web site.
AGM: We postponed the AGM as lockdown measures were required by
Government in March and remain in force. At this time the rules are changing
gradually, but there is no clear indication when gatherings for particular
activities will be permitted and what safety measures must be put in place.
The committee will be giving consideration on how to meet the requirements
of the Players’ Constitution.
Good Friday ‘Walk of Witness’ street theatre: This had to be
cancelled due to lockdown rules and it is hoped that what was being planned
will be delivered for Easter 2021. This is ‘Peter’s Denial’ written by Peter
For 2020, the Charlton Kings Churches provided an on-line walk hosted on
the St. Mary’s web site. This included the YouTube video of ‘Josh on Trial’
performed by the Players in 2012.
Best wishes to our members and supporters … stay safe and well.
