Less than a month to go now until our summer production, and we are already looking for ideas for the autumn slot. If that wasn’t enough, plans are also well advanced for next year’s pantomime, and we are looking for volunteers
On 20-22 June at 7:30pm, PVADS is proud to present Peter Shaffer’s famous 1960s farce. Tickets are on sale now – details below.
Struggling sculptor Brindsley Miller (Chris Smith) and his fiancée Carol (Anna Gent), are having a party with the aim of impressing Carol’s bombastic father, Colonel Melkett (Rob Bottoms) and millionaire Georg Bamberger, who they hope might purchase some of Brindsley’s sculptures. Without permission, they have borrowed the furniture and effects of Brindsley’s fussy neighbour, Harold (Steve Clements), to make their own flat more presentable.
Just before the guests arrive, the main fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness. What follows is a frantic romp with unexpected visitors, mistaken identities, and surprises lurking in every dark corner! Only we, the audience, can see the action that ensues in the dark. As you might expect, the results are chaotic, disastrous and very funny, indeed! Also starring Tracey Pullen, Sue Randall, Stu Jackson and Paul Hughes.
Produced by Martin Clifton
Directed by Nettie Brown & Stu Jackson
PVADS are looking for ideas for next autumn’s production. We are open to all ideas, and have done many different types of show in this slot in recent years, from sketch shows and one-act plays to epic productions. If you have an idea of something you would like to produce or direct, please let us know.
Next year’s pantomime will be Peter Pan. This is a challenging show to put on and we are looking for volunteers to help with the production of the many costumes that will be needed. If anyone would like to help out and knows one end of a sewing machine from the other, please contact us and we will put you in contact with the producer of the show.
