We are ridiculously excited about our new venture, in association with the Bargeman's Rest in Newport on the Isle of Wight.
We are launching comedy play nights on the third Friday of each month, starting in January next year. They will be amazing!
The idea is that groups of friends, or theatre groups, or individuals, or complete strangers - anyone, really - can get together to put on a 30 or 60 minute comedy play that will have our audience in stitches (no, it doesn't have to be about needlework ...).
The good news is that they can be rehearsed readings, so there are no lines to learn (unless you want to be a real smart alec ... by the way, who was alec and was he a snappy dresser?).
The reason for this over-enthusiastic post is that the deadline for entries is December 19, so not long to go. All you need to do at this stage is send us a copy of what you want to do. We'll work out a schedule from January to June based on those entries, and let you know when you're on. You just have to make it funny, turn up at the right time, and pay any performance licence fee that is due for your own play.
And if you're really lucky, you might step up and win a prize at our not to be missed prize giving night in July!
Got to be time for one of those smiley things, hasn't it? :-)
