The Orchard Players Newsletter June/ July 2016

Hi  Folks,

Summer Show 2016

Only just over 2 weeks to go! How the time has flown by. Rehearsals are going really well, we have had a couple of extra singing rehearsal at my house and they have proved most productive. I am hoping to have an extra rehearsal on Tuesday June 28th to polish up the big dance routines, but am waiting for confirmation that we can have the library on that evening. Attendance at rehearsals has been exceptional this year, so thank you everyone for your commitment and hard work, it makes it so much easier to plan things.                                      If you haven’t got your tickets yet, see Sue or call 07754175399.

 Due to elections in the Village hall, the rehearsal  on June 23rd will be held in Capel St Mary Primary School.

Social and Fundraising

Capel St Mary Fun Day

Fun day was very well supported.  The weather was kind to us and we had a lot of help and made a reasonable profit. Thanks to everyone who came and took a turn running the stall, and encouraging people to part with their money, especially to our juniors, Kirsten, Ellie, Grace, Megan and Holly, whom came and did a stint behind the fruit machine.

Annual BBQ

We will be holding our annual BBQ on Sunday July 31st at 1pm at 19 Thorney Road, Capel. Please can you let me know if you will be coming and if you will be bringing either a salad or a dessert. There will be a small charge of £2 for members and £3 for non-members. Please bring your own drinks.
