News from ITS
Thank you for the lovely messages that we had about our last newsletter; it is so nice to be back doing what we love.

Here are just a few reminders of dates for our next events, plus some new ones for your diary.

Monday 26th September 2022
We have 12 tickets left for the play reading evening led by Andrew Gommersall. Meet at 6.30 pm for a 7 pm curtain at Keto Royale Kafe in San Pedro. (The exact location is on the ITS online tickets page.)

Tapas will be provided and tickets are 6€ for members and 8€ for non-members. Drinks are not included.

Come along and read a part, or simply sit, listen and enjoy!  Please book online now.

Murder Mystery evenings
Bookings open online on the 1st October for Diana King's "Murder for Breakfast". Please note that the dates have changed. We are now performing on Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th October 2022 at Keto Royale Kafe. Meet at 6.30 pm for a 7 pm curtain. Diana has written the play and she will be directing it too.

The cast is:
PJ Lopez as Inspector Merton
Eileen Audas as Jodie Green
Hayward Elliott as Reginald Webster
Veronica del Cerro as Marilyn Webster
June Rendle as Celia Patterson
Martin Curd as Matthew Patterson

The first part of the play is performed and a murder is committed.  Then the cast goes into the audience to be interrogated by them. The audience members write down who they think the murderer is.  Once all the answers are collected, an epilogue is performed to show who is the guilty person. Diana has cleverly written different epilogues for each night. The correct answers will be put into a hat and the first one drawn out will receive a bottle of wine.

Tickets are 6€ for members and 8€ for non members. Tapas is included in the price. Drinks are not included.
We have not done a Murder Mystery night for a while but these are fun and relaxed evenings. We recommend early bookings as numbers are limited to 40 each night.

Behind the Scenes: the backstage team
Wednesday 12th October 2022 at 6.30pm for 7pm start
We are organising an informal information and recruitment evening for anyone interested in joining our team of willing backstage volunteers. Sheila Mellor and Fiona Poole are organising the event and they have Karl Maresz, our brilliant and experienced set builder and backstage guru, speaking about his views of what we need.

The search for a venue
We are still looking for a suitable hotel/large venue for our staged performances. Thank you to those of you who made suggestions, we are following these up but so far, no joy.

However, our search to find a "home" venue for our meetings and rehearsals is excitingly near a conclusion. We have a generous offer from a local charity and we are all keen to sign this off. We will let you know as soon as possible.

Historically, we always used the upstairs room in El Candil Bar but since the renovations Alfonso made in lockdown, the business has boomed and the room is no longer available.

Our talented members
*Fiona Poole and Sheila Mellor have just performed at the Salon Varietes Theatre in Fuengirola in the "Comedy Tonight" show for five nights.
*Pam Butler and Eileen Audas are performing their "Putting It Together" show on 28th September 2022 at THESPA in Fuengirola.
