OK, so it's not actually been a month but we wanted to get the newsletter out early so we can remind you of a few things!

Of course, with the play just around the corner, next weekend is set build. The set's going to be a bit more of a challenge than of late so if you...

I must pick in my apples before the frosts start. With the closing in of evenings comes the return of rehearsals after Castle Players summer break.

We read some great plays during the summer months and had a few really good socials too. Sadly not as many as...

When I was at school, which is quite some time ago now, summer holiday's used to last, seemingly, forever. I never got bored though and can't understand those that did. Anyway, I digress. Nowadays that six week holiday seems no sooner to have started than the kids are...

I am so sorry. There we all were basking in the endless summer. Organising barbecues with gay abandon, safe in the knowledge that, like 1976, the weather was set until October. And then I arranged a barbecue on the beach with my lovely children and grand kids then, ba...

Hope you're all making the most of this lovely weather! We actually seem to be having a summer this year, no doubt it'll end as soon as the kids break up from school!

Just a very quick newsletter this month, Castle Players are on a bit of a break over the summer. Hope...

Is it really another month flown past?
I can't believe we're almost half way through the year. No wonder I feel so old!

Last time we had this little chat we were about to go to Jo's to read through Talking Heads by Alan Bennett. Which we did. It's a funny old world is...

Well here we are. Jingo has been and gone and we appear to have returned to winter if my central heating is anything to go by.

Jingo was everything I wanted it to be and so much more besides.

We have lots of new members thanks to Linsey and the Pantomime and I really...

April 2, 2018

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Doing these newsletters is like ticking your life off one month at a time. It seems no sooner have I sat down from the previous one than Linsey is cajoling (I thought that was a kinder word) me to do the next one. So here it i...

I know it's already meteorological spring but the real one hasn't started yet, which seems self-evident when I look out of the window. Unlike rehearsals for Jingo.

We are into our 3rd Sunday of rehearsals this week. And what a lot of fun we're having. Terry Pratchett'...

January 30, 2018

So here we are, half way through our pantomime run.

And what a cracker we have. I have been telling you repeatedly what a fantastic show we have but don't just take my word for it. You can read the review from Scene One linked elsewhere in this newsletter.

I have to sa...
