And now the event highlight of the Festival Players' Social Calendar....Evening with the Festival Players!
This year, the event will be held on Saturday September 11th at Newton Village Hall at 7.30pm. For those of you who haven't been before, this is a cabaret night where anyone is welcome to perform an act. The acts can be anything, including solos, duets, ensemble numbers, sketches, poems or anything you can think of that might entertain. Performers form part of the audience when not on stage and there will be food provided during the interval, courtesy of the fabulous Michael Husband. :) Please let me know in advance if you would like the meat or veggie option and also if you have any special dietary requirements and we will do our best to cater for those. Food this year will be Sweet and Sour Chicken, or S&S Vegetables, with egg noodles and prawn crackers. There will be some soft drinks provided, but please do bring along your own as well. Alcohol is welcome.
Cost will be £7 for members and £8 for non-members (extra £1 is optional).
For those interested in performing as well as watching, you can start emailing me details of your acts now. If you would like to be part of the audience, but not in any acts, you can also email me now. We need numbers for the catering and there is a maximum capacity of the venue as well, so book your place sooner rather than later!
This year we will be accompanied by Andrew Taylor, and he will need copies of the music in advance of the event. Please make sure your music reaches him by 28th August.
There will be a rehearsal day on Sunday 5th September from 2pm - 6pm and a final rehearsal on the actual day of the event. You will not be required for the entire rehearsal (unless you're in a lot of acts!) and I'll let you know closer to the time exactly when you will be needed.
There will also be an ensemble number directed by Tommy to close the show, which will be rehearsed in the final hour of the two rehearsal sessions. If you would like to be involved in this, please email me to let me know and also tell me your preferred voice range. This helps Tommy to balance the voices we have!
If you have any questions on either event, please email me and I will try to answer them.
To remind you, email me now to let me know:
- you're coming to the BBQ
- you're coming to EWFP
- meat/veggie food for EWFP (or dietary requirements)
- you'd like to do an act at EWFP
- you'd like to be in the ensemble number and what your voice range is (i.e. soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, bass...or maybe contra bass in Les's case?? ;) )
I hope my inbox will withstand the torrent of emails... ;)
