We hope 2019 has started well for you. We opened the year with a play reading evening led by Martin Curd at El Candil. Thank you to everyone who came along.

Our next event comes quickly on the heels of the autumn production. Peter Brooks will be directing two rehearsed play readings on Wednesday 28th November 2018 at El Paraiso Golf Club at 7.30 pm for an 8 pm curtain. Rehearsed play readings are where the cast wear costume and read from their script (some do learn it!).

The summer is almost over, the heat is reducing and we open our fabulous programme with June Rendle directing two plays on Wednesday 12th September at El Paraiso Golf Club at 7.30 pm. Two rehearsed play readings will be performed and Karl Maresz is the producer. June wrote “Champagne and Olives” and we are also reading “The Window”.

We hope this newsletter will give you plenty to look forward to as we move towards the inevitable ‘close down period’ over the hottest months! But before we go...

Wednesday 4th July
Our next event is on Wednesday 4th July at El Paraiso Golf Club at 7.30 pm for 8 pm curtain up.
Veronica del Cerro is directing "Three Tall Women" written by an American playwright, Edward Albee that won the 1994 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, his third one!  (Glenda Jackson has just won the 2018 Tony award for her recent performance in this play.)

As spring is hotting up nicely so is our programme! We have plenty to keep you smiling and socialising over the new few months.

We start with a play reading led by Sandra Sprawson on Thursday 26th April at El Candil Bar in San Pedro. We will be reading “Just the two of us” written by Roz Moruzzi with seven characters. We will meet at 7.30 pm for an 8 pm curtain. There is no charge for this event and you do not need to book, simply turn up. It is your chance to read a part or you can simply sit and listen. These events are really popular so please come along and enjoy a friendly and relaxing evening.

The Autumn Production
Auditions were held in July for the cast of Eric Chappell’s “Haywire” which Diana King will direct in October. Thank you to everyone who auditioned.

Things are hotting up for the summer and we have some lovely events for you to attend before we take respite from the heat during August.

Our next event
On Thursday 29th June at The Atalaya Park Hotel, Peter Brooks will direct Noel Coward’s “Still Life”, the play that the film “Brief Encounter” is based upon. This is a staged play reading (also known as a rehearsed reading or books- in- hand).
