Looking further ahead we are planning a fundraising event entitled Old Time Music Hall for Saturday November 18th . All are welcome to come and enjoy this fun-filled evening. More details nearer the date.
Saturday 15th July saw a small group of Thorpe Players responding to suggestions (mostly friendly!) from the audience in the improvised revue 'Anything Can Happen'. Thanks to John Badgery for putting the whole thing together and to those who took part for their bravery! A fun, social evening was had by all. Click on image to enlarge.
Izzy Munday, director of Tomb With a View, explains a little more
about the plot and what happened on the Friday night!
The Friday night performance!
Although Claire - who played Anne - had such a lot of fake bloody dealings in the play,
unfortunately she herself cannot tolerate the sight of her own blood, and 10 minutes
before the end of Friday nights ' performance, cut her hand causing it to bleed and she
couldn't help but faint on the front of the stage! Fortunately she didn't hurt herself and
recovered in about 10 minutes but there was nothing we could do but bring the
evening to an abrupt close. We sincerely apologise to all the members of the audience
and, as we have a record of those present, would like to offer them £2 off the next
Who killed who in "Tomb with a View"!
For those who came to see Thorpe Players' latest
production and still not sure "who-done-it" ( or
indeed those who came on the Friday night and
unfortunately missed the ending) here goes........
Penworthy put poison in Freda's sherry , and
shot Oliver down in the cellar (we never actually
saw him, but heard him often!) Monica stabbed
Penworthy in the garden / also (finally) Anne!
Anne shot Marcus / beheaded Lucien and put it
in a box in the secret passage / stabbed Agatha
with a meat axe (!!) / poisoned Emily with
cyanide in her apple and finally strangled Dora
with her own scarf.
So Penworthy = 2 / Monica = 2 / Anne = 5!!
(Not a nice nurse!!) Perry (Ermyntrude Ash) is left
being chased by man-mad Monica!!

St. George's Day Fete
Sunday April 23rd saw Thorpe Players participate in the Thorpe St. Andrew fete dedicated to St. George! We've done this for quite a few years now, come rain or shine, and this year we had our biggest tent ever which housed a small area where a half hourly show about 'illusions' was performed. The weather was kind to us this year and a great time was had by all. Click on pictures below to enlarge.
