Summer Show 2016

Jukebox Summer Time

Produced and Directed by Val and Len Munns with

Musical Director Maria King

Show dates July 7th 8th and 9th 2016

Please come along to our preliminary meeting in

Capel St Mary Village Hall on Thurs Feb 11th at 7.30pm

This show has a summer theme with all the fun and excitement of holiday time. The songs are mostly from the jukebox era of the 1960’s and offer great solo opportunities for both male and female singers, as well as chorus and dancing for performers of all ages. Our list of songs includes numbers from iconic artists such as The Beatles, The Kinks, Dusty Springfield and The Beachboys.

Committee Responsibilities

Each committee member has a job, which they are responsible for. Bridie Burn has recently been co-opted onto the committee and is taking on a new role as Junior Representative. This is something we haven’t had in the past, but feel that sometimes our young people may have ideas, but are reluctant to approach an older member to put it forward, we therefore decided that they should have their own rep. to go to if they have any issues they wish to discuss. Bridie has also been working hard at revamping our website, and a new look site will be going live in the New Year. Along with the new look website, we have agreed to introduce a new group profile, with a rehearsal uniform, which the committee will actively encourage members to wear. This will be Black leggings/trousers, black t/shirt preferably with the Orchard Player logo and jazz shoes. The t/shirts will be available to buy, at a small cost of £5, in time to start rehearsals for the next production.

All that remains now is to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year
