Agatha Christie’s ‘The Hollow’

A week end house party at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry Angkatell and his wife Lucy, turns into a nightmare when tragedy strikes. Among the guests are three of the Angkatell cousins, Edward, Midge and Henrietta- Edward is in love with Henrietta and Midge is in love with Edward. Also present are Dr John Cristow and his wife, Gerda. Imagine Cristow’s shock when he finds not only his wife and mistress, Henrietta, under the same roof, but also his ex-mistress, the actress, Veronica Craye. The scene is set for murder. How fortunate that there is a detective on hand to help solve the mystery.

Barn Move Thanks

Shawbury Village Players have a new home!

What a brilliant week end we’ve had – and we did it – we squeezed a quart into a pint pot! In other words, we managed to move our belongings from Becks Barn to our new home at Shawbury Village Hall.

Thank you so much to the large team of group members who worked tirelessly for two solid days to effect the move. It was a joy to see so many of us pulling together, and as a result, what seemed like a mammoth task was completed with a great deal of fun and team spirit in record time.

We now have a few aching muscles between us but a great sense of achievement for a job well done. So thank you all of you very very much.

Angela Bray, Chair.

Storage Barn Move 🏗️

We previously sent an advance notice for moving all the Shawbury Village Players costumes, flats and props. We can confirm that we’ll be tackling this move this weekend, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd April. We’d like everyone who can to meet us at the barn at 9:30am and the Shawbury Village hall at 10:30am.

If you need directions to the barn, please contact Richard Bray on 01939 250612 or email on angelajbray@sky.com

You may not be aware but there are thousands of items to be moved, so all help would be grateful, even for only a couple of hours.

Big SVP Survey

We have decided to run a survey to find out how members are interacting with the group, what they’ve been able to do in the group, what they’d like to do and to find out about the general direction of the group for the future. So if you have ever taken part in a Village Players production, been involved in a social event, interested in amateur dramatics or simply just been part of the audience we’d really like your opinions. Even if you are the parent of someone who’s been in a production, your opinion counts. http://shawburyvillageplaye.polldaddy.com/s/svp-big-2017-survey

The survey will be closing on Wednesday 3rd May, so please forward the above link to anyone you think would like to help and/or join the group. Please spend 5-10mins to help plan for the future of the Shawbury Village Players.
