A last-minute reminder that our Autumn production, the iconic wartime drama Flare Path by Terence Rattigan, opens tomorrow night - Friday 20 September - at 7.30 at the recently re-named King James Academy, Senior Site (formerly Meridian School) in Garden Walk, Royston.

Pantomime auditions

Hot on the heels of the current production, we shall be holding auditions for the 2020 Royston Town Pantomime - Jack and the Beanstalk by Tom Whalley, to be directed by Nicky Paton with Louise Atkins as Musical Director. These take place on Thursday 3 October at King James Academy (formerly Meridian School), with chorus members (aged 12+) auditioning between 7.00 and 7.45 p.m. and principals (aged 18+) between 7.45 and 9.00. Rehearsals are likely to start the following week and will almost certainly be on Mondays and Thursdays. Performances will be on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 January, and Friday 31 January and Saturday 1 February with the usual matinees on the two Saturdays and evening shows on all four dates.

Evening meetings

And not long after that we start our programme of evening meetings at the Coombes Community Centre in Royston. The first is a round-the-table reading of a one-act play called My left nut , hosted by Emma Daintrey, and will run from 7.00 to 9.00 p.m. on Wednesday 16 October.

No previous experience necessary and there's no need to book - just turn up on the night - and it's completely FREE! If you're lucky, we might even manage to provide some refreshments...


Our next meeting is on 15 October so if there's anything you'd like us to consider or discuss, please feel free to contact any of us at any time via our Contact page!
