Thank you for your excellent support as usual for the “Lark in the Park”, our annual charity event held in Benahavis. We raised a total of 4290 € with 2066 € going to “Alzheimer and Dementia Support”, the new charity set up by one of our members, Rebecca Flowerdew. The remaining 2066 € will be used to provide venues for our performances. This is the first time that we have used some of the money raised. This is so that we can continue to fulfil the requirements of our statutes to provide theatre for the public.

We would like to thank the town hall at Benahavis for their support with this event and all the acts/singers who gave their time for free for the charity. And of course all the actors and those involved in the organisation of this day. Thank you! We couldn’t do it without you.

Rehearsed play reading
In early July, Veronica del Cerro directed a super evening of theatre at El Trapiche in San Pedro with a superb cast who read “The Importance of Being Earnest”. We all had a good evening and we are grateful to Veronica for her expertise and her time.

Auditions
We have two audition dates for you: 14th August and 21st August. Please hold these dates if you may be interested.
Peter Brooks will be auditioning on the 14th August for a rehearsed play reading that he is doing on the 18th September.
Diana King will be auditioning for the main production on the 21st August for the performances in late October/early November.
Full details of both plays will be sent out very soon.
The venue for both of these is El Candil Bar in San Pedro at 7.30 pm for an 8 pm start.

A master class: stagecraft

Peter Brooks and Diana King, both very experienced actors and directors, will be leading this event. It will be held on 9th October 2019. Full details will be made available nearer the time.

A Christmas Fair
We will be supporting an event being held at the Palacio de Congresos in Estepona on the 23rd November 2019. We will be taking a stall to promote our activities. And we will be in costume. Please come along and support us if you can.

Digital Certificate
We have finally gotten our digital certificate thanks to Martin, our President and a lawyer. It means that we now have secure, online access to government websites. This access is now required in many cases if we need to make requests of local entities, like getting official approval to use the park in Benahávis for Lark in the Park.
We wish you a happy and peaceful summer.
