Our Next Production.

Russell Players 2022 Pantomime – Goldilocks Three Bears and the Detectives.

We are planning to stage our ever-popular pantomime in February 2022 at Swallowfield Parish Hall. Goldilocks, Three Bears, and the Detectives written by Juliet Devon will be directed by the innovative Maggie Uttley and promises to be another fun-filled production for all the family.   

The read-through of the pantomime will be held in the Main Hall at Swallowfield Parish Hall at 8.00 pm on Wednesday 13th October. 

Due to unprecedented circumstances, and to comply with our revised Health and Safety Guidelines, we would ask that you only attend if you have been double vaccinated and you wish to be involved in, or part of, the actual production (rather than just to support the read-through).  This is an open event, so anyone is welcome as long as they fulfill the outlined criteria.

On your first visit, we will require evidence to support your double vaccination. This doesn’t apply if you are under eighteen.  

Entry will be through the front doors of the main hall and you will be signed in. You will be asked if you feel well, and asked to sign a simple declaration confirming the same.  

The kitchen will not be in use as we have limited access within the Hall premises. We would ask that you bring your own refreshments to the read-through and subsequent rehearsals. 

Whilst these new requirements may seem inconvenient, we have a duty of care to our members, and an obligation to take reasonable steps to protect them. We respectfully ask that members do not attend the read-through or rehearsals if they feel unwell.

The auditions will be held at Swallowfield Parish Hall at 7.30 pm on Sunday 17th October and Wednesday 20th October. 

Rehearsals will be held in Swallowfield Parish Hall on Wednesday and Sunday evenings from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm (unless otherwise advised).

The performance dates are; Saturday 5th February (matinee and evening), Sunday 6th February  (matinee only),  Wednesday 9th February (evening performance),  Saturday 12th February  (matinee and evening) and Sunday 13th February (matinee only).

At the read-through, the  Director will talk through her ideas and will answer any questions you may have.  If you wish to attend please email Maggie Uttley at kcuttley@aol.com  or telephone her on 0118 988 2954 to register your interest, by Monday 11th October.

We look forward to seeing you there.
