THE GAGE PLAYERS – Amateur Drama Group

What Really Happened?
Book your place at the Riddell Hall from 7pm on Saturday, 5th February, to find out.
An evening of five (yes, five) comedies written and directed by Pip Rolls, to be performed as rehearsed and preformed readings, at the Riddell Hall from 7pm on Saturday, 5th February.  The plays are based on historical facts, but with a twist in the tale which alters historical outcomes!  They are very funny and extremely clever, so do come along and enjoy a hilarious evening, guaranteed to lift the spirits.

We ask you to come along bringing your own supper-snacks and drinks (soft or alcoholic) to enjoy at the start of the evening.  Feel free to bring Fish and Chips, Pizza,  or just a Picnic, the choice is yours. Please bring your own plates, crockery and condiments and please bring a bag with you to take away the rubbish.

The Gage will provide glasses, and free tea/coffee and cakes in the interval, as well as ensuring that the hall is well provided with hand sanitisers at the entrance, at counters and in toilets, as well as on each table with its numbered seating to match telephone bookings.  Unless you have medical exemption, we do ask audience members to wear a mask when not eating or drinking; the hall will be well ventilated.
The box office number to ring is 01737 812 703, tickets will be £15 each – we believe this is good value, and should allow us to cover hall hire and other production costs.
Our play will be Agatha Crusty and The Village Hall Murders by Derek Webb; the play will be directed by Christopher Slater.   Auditions will take place at 8pm on Wednesday, 12th, Monday, 17th and Wednesday, 19th January, 2022

We ask everyone intending to audition on any of these dates to:

  1. Bring with them evidence of a negative lateral flow test result taken on the day of audition
  2. Wear a face mask indoors
  3. Maintain social distancing indoors

This is to protect everyone’s safety.

If for any reason you cannot comply with any of the three above, please contact Chris to let him know of your interest in taking part in the play, so that he may be able to arrange a time to discuss a role or roles with you.
