keeping up appearances
22-24 Sept & 29 Sept - 1 Oct 2022
Director: Wilma low
Writer: Robert Harling
Our September production is a play adaptation of the well loved TV comedy, Keeping Up Appearances.
Emmet is trying to get his amdram play cast in the local village hall. He and his sister Liz - the long suffering friend of one Hyacinth Bucket - are determined Hyacinth will NOT discover they are short for one role.
But, of course, her determination to be involved in the local play is ever-strong much to the dismay of Onslow, Daisy, Rose, Emmett and Elizabeth – not to mention anyone one else she encounters!
Enjoy a drink at the bar and who knows, you might be lucky in our raffle!
For your safety we have reduced our audience capacity to allow for social distancing of groups. We encourage audience members to wear a mask while in the theatre. Hand sanitiser will be available at a number of points in the theatre. We will ventilate the theatre as much as possible, and have carbon monoxide monitors in place. There will also be enhanced cleaning procedures in place.

the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy
Director: Nicky stewart & Mat hodson
Writer: Douglas adams
MAD presents the Radio Play, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (part 1, or ‘Fit the First’) by Douglas Adams.
In the first few weeks of lockdown back in April, MAD decided to try our hand at a radio play. Through the next few months some members met virtually to rehearse this production. The experience not only allowed us a creative outlet, a social connection with a familiar process and ‘something to do’ but it also was a huge learning process for everyone.
The cast not only produced all the character voices, they also created as many of the sound effects as possible using anything they could find! All the ‘music’ was also created by members. We learned the best ways of gathering individual ‘voices’, and were able to involve those not able to join the virtual rehearsals. Each voice or effect was collected individually and edited together - another skill we had to learn!
So please when you listen, understand that the creation of this production is our first attempt at this type of production. We are still editing ‘Fit the Second’ which should be completed by the end of October. We hope you enjoy listening even half as much as we have enjoyed making this.
This has been a ‘not-for-profit’ production.
