News from ITS
We hope 2022 has got off to a good start for you and your family. Unfortunately for us, our venue search is still a significant challenge and we have been unable to find anywhere for an event in January.

However, we have some great news in that Eileen Audas and Pam Butler, have created a unique two woman show called "Putting it Together”. Eileen and Pam are two of our long-standing members and two of your favourite entertainers. Both excel onstage, especially in comedy roles. Devised and directed by Pam Butler, this is a melange of drama, comedy, song and dance. The show is a complex projection of all things theatrical and demonstrates the expertise and range of these performers in their many voices and moods. With imaginative use of costumes and props they conjure up an air of excitement, anticipation, humour and participation. This is something quite different for us to showcase but we know that it will be an evening of entertainment and fun.

They will be performing for us on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th March 2022 at El Trapiche Cultural Centre in San Pedro. Curtain up each evening will be at 7.30pm. The town council does not allow tickets to be sold for events at El Trapiche, even for non-profit making organisations like us, so we will be relying on donations from our supporters who want admission tickets.

Full compliance with Covid restrictions means that the reservation of a seat is essential. This can be done by booking ahead on our website. Bookings will open on 2 February 2022.

The Annual General Meeting 2022 (AGM)
We will be meeting at El Paraiso Golf Club on Tuesday 15th March 2022 at 6pm for a 6.30 pm start. The papers for the meeting will follow shortly. All members are invited and, if you have not paid your subs yet, you can pay on the night.
Our last AGM was in February 2020 so it will be great to see people. As usual we will provide complimentary tapa for all members after the meeting at 7.30 pm. Proceedings will finish at 8.30 pm.

Our main production "Towards Zero" by Agatha Christie

After two years of waiting (and rehearsing), Peter Brook's fantastic cast will be performing this classic play. The dates we are proposing are mid/late April 2022. We would love to confirm an exact date but until we get confirmation of a venue, we cannot do this. But we are so determined to perform this for your entertainment this year, we will make it happen!

The Lark in the Park
Our annual charity event held in June in the park in Benahavis is still unknown. We are waiting to hear from the town hall to see if they will authorise it after two cancellations in 2020 and 2021. This event raises thousands of euros for local charities, generously donated by our supporters, so we are eager to get it back on track. We will let you know as soon as possible.

Play reading evenings and rehearsed readings/supper theatre
We have some new suggestions for venues willing to host these which we are following up but if anyone can suggest venues that might be willing, please let us know by replying to this email. Thanks

Thank you for your continued support and encouragement.
