St. George's Day Fete 2018
Sunday April 22nd
We all had a great time at the St. George's Day Fete this year in lovely the warm weather. Lots of fun! Thanks to all involved and to all who came and visited our stand. Here's a few photos from the event!
Our Pop Up Music Hall fund-raising event that took place on Saturday 18th November turned out to be a rewarding evening. Both the audience and the performers had a great evening of frivolous, phantasmagorical fun in the true spirit of Music Hall.
Many thanks to all those who came and saw the show and helped to raise funds for Thorpe Players. We really do appreciate your support.
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!!
