End-of-Year Activities

Our program of public productions for 2012 has now been completed BUT there are still activities in the pipeline for November and December.

The committee is looking ahead to our 2013 program, in particular considering a number of plays for the April and October slots.

Already, Noel Coward’s comedy Hay Fever, to be directed by Fay Walters, has been pencilled in for the ever-popular Month of Sundays in August.

The year’s opener, February’s Summer Sunday Wind-Down, will feature Louise Blackett’s production of John Galsworthy’s The First and the Last.

Among the plays suggested for our major show in April is a stage adaptation of the popular film Calendar Girls. To ‘test the waters’ on this show, an open play reading will be held in the Basement on Wednesday 14 November at 7.30 pm. Come along and join in the fun of this reading – there are plenty of parts available.

Further suggestions or proposals for the April and October 2013 slots are invited.

The 14 November play reading also marks the start of a proposed regular play reading gathering, to be held monthly as an opportunity for the ongoing involvement of members in a relaxed social atmosphere.

Watch this space for details of this activity.

To round out 2012, a booking is being made for a Christmas gathering at the Pavilion on Saturday 8 December.

For just $25 per person, a traditional Christmas menu of a roast plus Christmas dessert will be available. And SoACT will be making a contribution towards the evening’s drinks.

This is an ideal opportunity to round out our year in a relaxed and festive setting – and no washing up afterwards!

Please advise the SoACT Office as soon as possible if you will be coming along.
