It’s here at last…
Our first main stage production since October 2019 will be performed on Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th April 2022 directed by Peter Brooks and produced by Janet Barnett. We have Agatha Christie’s thriller “Towards Zero” * at the Hotel Paraiso in Estepona. Curtain is at 7.30 pm on Friday and Saturday but 7pm on Sunday evening.

The cast is fabulous with Jaime Adalid, Paul Baker, Eric Fraggalosch, PJ Lopez, Hannah Murray, Laurie Passman, Fiona Poole, Carmel Rogers, Eleanor Schuman, Beverley Stonehewer, and Jamie Stonehewer.

The synopsis is as follows:
When a house party gathers at Gulf Point, the seaside home of Lady Tressilian, Neville Strange finds himself caught between his old wife Audrey and his new flame Kay. A nail-biting thriller, the play probes the psychology of jealousy in the shadow of a savage and brutal murder. A carefully unpeeled investigation before our eyes brings the story to a pointed ending.

Tickets are now available on our website. Member tickets are 15€ and non-member tickets are 17€.

We cannot wait to bring you a fully rehearsed stage play after so long and we look forward to performing it for you.

The rehearsed play reading supper evenings at Keto Royale Kafe in San Pedro
The two evenings on 25th and 26th March sold out immediately. Two guest actors from Fuengirola’s THESPA group are performing with Eileen Audas; Sheila Mellor is performing a monologue; then June Rendle, Janet Barnett, and Sheila are performing part of a play together. Miles Rendle is directing the latter. Humour is a key part of these evenings!

The food at this venue is super and they are keen to host more events for us including play reading evenings which we have missed over the last two years. We will advertise these shortly.

Putting it Together

Congratulations to Eileen Audas and Pam Butler who performed their two-woman show for the first time at the end of February at El Trapiche for two nights. Music, dance, singing and drama in one show with great costume changes and lots of laughs. Pam also directed the show. This was a new and different direction for ITS. Well done to two of your favourite actors.
