The Orchard Players Newsletter February 2016

Hi  Folks,

Summer Show 2016

Fantastic turnout for our introductory meeting! The response has been great. Lots of people have handed in their preferences and I can see we will have our work cut out choosing our soloists. We could still do with a couple more men though. We are really keen to get started now. !st rehearsal and auditions for soloists will be held on Thursday March 3rd at 7.30 for all. Auditions for the 8 dancers in “Vacation” will be on Thursday March 10th, as Lynn is not here on the 3rd. Hope to see you all at the 1st rehearsal. If anyone couldn’t make it to the introductory meeting and wants to be in the show, feel free to come along on the 3rd.

Social and Fundraising

Capel St MaryFun Day

Fun day this year is Saturday June 4th. Hopefully we can get a strong team of helpers, so please make a note of the date. Please let a committee member know if you can help.

Quiz Night

We are planning a quiz night on Saturday October 15th. Please keep this date free.

Panto 2017

We are still looking for a director for Panto 2017. Please contact a committee member if you are interested

NODA Award

I must apologise! In the last newsletter I stated that we had won the NODA best panto award for “Jack and the Beanstalk”, but this was wrong. We have been nominated but will not know if we won until April. Sorry Rob.


The date has been set for this year’s AGM, which will take place on Thursday April 14th at 7.30pm. A committee nomination form is attached. If you wish to stand for committee, please hand completed form to Hazel as soon as possible.


T Shirts

You will be able to order Orchard Players Tshirts at the 1st rehearsal. They will cost £5.50 and will be available in child and adult sizes.

I think that’s all for now. See you at rehearsals.
