[F]or people who want to know what Penrith Players is about, who might want to get involved or to just see what is coming up this season, there is a open evening on Friday 9 February for people to drop in any time from 6.00 pm until 9.00 pm. at the Playhouse Theatre.
There will be key people from all parts of the club there who will be on hand to talk about acting, directing, back stage, wardrobe, sound and lighting, set building, and front of house support. Directors of the season’s plays will be around to talk about their forthcoming play, and people can eavesdrop on a rehearsal of the Players’ next main play “Blue Remembered Hills”.
Visitors will be able to have a free glass of wine or soft drink in the newly refurbished theatre bar.
Players’ Chair, Roger Bird, said: “As a club we have a lot to offer the town and area, and we want people to see what there is here for them.
“This is a great chance for those interested in the theatre to look at what opportunities are available here.”
Theatre Committee Chair Ian Baker said “We have a great full season coming up with plays like Blue Remembered Hills, All My Sons, a variety show, The Importance of Being Earnest and Blackadder Goes Forth… Again.
The Playhouse Theatre is behind Morrisons just off the roundabout near the Castle.
