The Orchard Players Newsletter April 2019
Well bother me!!!! It’s already April!! As I sit and write this I have chocolate around my mouth and deep regret in my soul…..yes that’s right…It’s EASTER!!!! So here’s the latest from Orchard Players’ HQ!! (Much of it is the same but please re-read so you don’t forget the crucial bits. This reduces the credibility of the “I didn’t know” or “I forgot about it” excuses.)
Annual General Meeting
As previously mentioned in ALL THE OTHER NEWSLETTERS our annual general meeting is being held in the village hall on Thursday the 25th of April at 7.30pm. Now i don’t want to be the group b**** (no juniors here? no? good!!) but this meeting is at a time and place when everyone would usually be at a rehearsal anyway SO unless you’re previously booked off on the “absent from rehearsal” sheet then there isn’t a reason why you cannot be present. I promise you it’s not boring!! You know you want to know what the committee gets up to at those meetings and the answers will all become clear to you!! There’s a reason why the meetings are held in the bar!!
On a related note, if there is anyone who has a burning desire to join the committee then speak now or forever hold your peace….until next time…
Capel Fun Day!!
Team Fun have been working tirelessly every single year…for the last year to bringFUN FUN FUN to both Capel and Bentley fun days!! Our aim is to raise funds and awareness to the group for current and upcoming shows!! However much Team Fun LOVESsupervising the stall for the entire day it would be amazing if anyone could spare an hour or two of their precious time to help “man” the stall and coax a couple of quid out of the good public!!
Prizes!!! ANY DONATIONS FOR PRIZES FOR OUR STALL WOULD BE GRATEFULLY RECEIVED!! THESE CAN BE ALCOHOLIC OR NOT!!
NOT TO MAKE YOU UNCOMFORTABLE OR ANYTHING BUT A MEMBER OF TEAM FUN WILL BE APPROACHING YOU SOON TO ENQUIRE ABOUT YOUR AVAILABILITY….AND THEY HAVE WAYS OF MAKING YOU TALK. SO START THINKING ABOUT YOUR EXCUSES NOW!!!!

Summer Show 2019
The current Summer show, “An American In Suffolk” is simmering nicely!! The juniors are continuing to impress with their dedication to learning their material (knowing their own lines and each others’)!! We’ve not known anything like it!! Good work!! The adult cast too are well under way with learning their material!……..Good work!!.
Due to the nature of this show you can imagine that it is going to very…..”Proppy” and “furniturey“. Meaning we will require a number of props and furniture faithful in appearance to the 1940s era. Our good director, Cheryll, has compiled a props list for everybody’s perusal. Hard copies will be available from her at rehearsals. Have a butchers and see what you think.
Do you or anyone you know have a small or large business? Would you or them be interested ineffective and reasonably priced advertising??? Well search no more!! The Orchard Players can provide all these things to you and more!! For an advert in our programme you get:
Value: £40 for a full page advert of your choice and design or £20 for a half page.
Guaranteed views: Your advert would be seen by potentially hundreds of audience members as they peruse our beautifully designed programme.
It’s a no-brainer!! Please approach a member of committee if you are interested in this opportunity!
Additional included Paperwork
Saving the best notice till last! The included attachments with this newsletter are to arm you and mentally prepare you for the upcoming AGM. The new new NEW constitution (newer than the new constitution you were sent with the last newsletter. New in the sense that the newness of the last one was the newest available to us but it didn’t include the newness of the newer constitution as the newness of the newest one was too new to include in what is now the old one).
There will also be an AGM agenda AND the minutes of the previous AGM. It must be stressed that the minutes you have been sent are not agreed minutes. They will be agreed minutes once we are all sitting together at the AGM and all say “I agree” in unison.
You may also receive more paperwork but that’s a surprise. (This is me covering myself in case i’ve forgotten to mention something else I may have to send you).
Any queries???? Ask someone else.
Much love to all, my beauties.
