The sun is out, the sky is blue……..
Well that’s what we’re all hoping for! We know that
Summer is truly on its way when we start talking
about the Copthorne Carnival and I’m sure the
whole village is looking forward to celebrating
‘Peace Around the World’ on 29th June. The Players
certainly love participating and are delighted to be
repeating our ‘Strawberries and Cream’ stall along
with our skittles alley; but in addition this year we’re
introducing the ‘Smoothie Bike’! Want to see a Nun
riding a smoothie bike? Make sure you visit our stall!
Just a week later, we take to the stage with our
production of ‘Nunsense’. This hilarious musical is
taking place at Copthorne village hall on 4th, 5th and
6th July and we can guarantee you won’t want to
miss it! It’s not often that a show combines such fast
paced comedy and fabulous songs along with some
touching moments. Our five ‘Nuns’ and the directing
team are having an absolute blast rehearsing this
show and can’t wait to share it with an audience. So
make sure you book your tickets, either online (www.
copthorneplayers.co.uk) or call the box office on
01342 713139 or 01342 712550.
Hardly pausing for breath, we are now auditioning
for our next play, ‘When we are Married’. This 1938
British farce begins when a group of old friends,
all married on the same day in the same chapel,
gathers to celebrate their silver anniversary. When
they discover that they are not legally married, each
couple initially reacts with proper Victorian horror, but
soon all three couples find themselves re-evaluating
their marriages. Can this possibly have a happy
ending? You’ll just have to wait and see. It’s being
performed at the village hall from 3rd – 5th October.
Watch this space for more details.
And before we know it, it will be Christmas! Not
wanting to wish the year away but we are super
excited to announce that our panto for January 2020
will be ‘Jack and The Beanstalk’. This is just in the
early planning stages and we will be advertising
further details of the auditions and performances in
the next issue.
