Our Next Production - Curtain Up! by Adam Croft
Wednesday 18th to Sat 21st October
It's a comedy in 2 acts and sounds strangely familiar!
Gerrysthorpe Players are about to begin rehearsals for their latest dramatic offering. As they gather in the Village Hall, old friends greet each other and make themselves comfortable, but who is their mysterious new member, and are West End agents really likely to turn up? Their production gets off to a ponderous start until the council drops a bombshell. Our band of players has an important decision to make; suddenly it's a race against time.
Tension mounts as the pressure builds. It's looking like the end for Gerrysthorpe Players, but can a dodgy character save the day? Are the players up to the challenge they've set themselves? Will poor Rodney's nerve hold and who is kissing whom? Can Hetty get that line right and just how much cake can anybody eat?
And finally, will there be an unexpected twist before the end.....? Of course there will!
It's difficult talking about a play about a play (!), but in the real world, rehearsals are well underway. If you wish to help backstage or in other ways, please contact Jane Weeks, Lisa Croker or Helen Bevan either directly or via this web site.
Online tickets for Curtain Up! are now available on this web site.
