Players Amateur Dramatic Group
Chiltern Players is a long established amateur dramatic society which has
enjoyed considerable success over the years. It has to its past credits many
pantomimes and plays, festival winning entries and murder mystery evenings.
Our membership fees are £20 for the year running from January to December
and £15 if you join mid-season. Our Treasurer is Jenny Titchener who holds
our application forms. If you want to get a taste of how we work (very
informally!) please join us for one of our rehearsals on Thursday evening
from 7.30-10.00 at Christ the King Church Hall in Sedgewell Road. Just pop
in and talk to someone. It is very likely we will need backstage (especially
technical or building) help in April.
Open readings for the public and members will commence again at the
Reformation, Gallowstree Common. The first scheduled play reading at the
Reformation is March 5th at 8 pm, hosted by Jill and Roger Kendal. Watch
this space for further sessions throughout the spring and summer. Anyone is
welcome to attend these readings, whether they wish to be in a play or not.
There is no charge but we do ask you buy a drink at the bar.
In 2013 Chiltern Players produced “Curtain Up on Murder,” by Bettine
Manckelow, directed by Ian Miles. In June we presented an evening of one
act plays: “Daddy’s Gone A-hunting,” produced by Rosemary House and ”Stop
and Run,” produced by Ian Miles at Peppard Memorial Hall. We also
performed a one act play,” Playgoers,” in the garden at The Reformation Pub,
directed by Astrid Stevens, the proceeds of which went to The Muscular
Dystrophy Society. The latest production was a well-received mixture of
light entertainment,"A Spice of Life," at the end of November, produced by
A fast moving comedy by Michael Snelgrove
The play takes place at a teacher's residential centre where five diverse characters meet to mark exams papers. The far from perfect Howard leads his team through this chaotic time, where the frustrations of besotted Pat, pontificating Oliver, efficient Judith and young Ian become increasingly apparent.
