Next production announced – Xmas revue

We’re taking the opportunity to showcase all of our talented members in our next production, by staging a Xmas revue.

We’re planning a great entertaining mix of short comedy sketches interspersed with live music and singing.

If you would like to be involved – whether singing, acting, as a musician or helping behind the scenes we would love to hear from you.

If you have any suggestions for short sketches, please email Bev at pantoboss@gmail.com or bring your ideas along to our first rehearsal on Monday 4th September.

 

 

New committee announced

Thanks to all of you that attended our AGM on 15th June.

Thank you

Our thanks go to all the hard work from the 2016/2017 committee members.

We particularly wish to thank Bev Ibbotson, who has worked tirelessly as Chair for the last 8 years. She has decided to step down from Chair this year, but remains on the committee and will continue to direct our 2017 productions – you will even get to see her return to the stage in our next production Ladies Day!

Marilyn Stannard, who has been a Chelford Players committee member for a staggering 34 years was awarded a lifetime membership as a massive thank you for all her support over the years.

Our thanks also go to George Marcall, who is stepping down from the committee and is sadly leaving the Chelford Players as he moves to be closer to his family in the South. We wish him well with the move.

New committee

We have voted in a new committee for 2017 /2018. We would like to welcome a new Chair – Christina Stannard. Chrissey has been a valued committee member for many years and frequently plays lead roles in many of our productions – you may have seen her as the evil pirate in our last pantomine Treasure Island!

Our thanks also go to Gordon Ibbotson who will continue as Treasurer and Claire Badger as Secretary.

Our new committee is:

Christina Stannard
Gordon Ibbotson
Claire Badger
Bev Ibbotson
Lisa Bessant Adams
Nick Munday
Marilyn Stannard
Lynsey Hunt

Ladies Day by Amanda Whittington

Work, love and life are just one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when Linda finds tickets to Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot the year it relocated to York.

Out go the hairnets, overalls and wellies as the four ditch work, do themselves up to the nines and head off to the races for a drink, a flirt and a flutter. If their luck holds, they could hit the jackpot – and more besides…
