As many of you will know, the Theatre Group organises coach trips to various stage productions throughout the year. Visits are made to Bath Theatre Royal, Malvern Theatre and Bristol Hippodrome among others, attending both matinées and evening performances. At Christmas a visit to Bath Abbey for “The Messiah” is popular.
Members are circulated information about performances: venue, cost, pick-up times etc. by e-mail, well in advance of the date – and if necessary by hand delivery. Places are given on a first-come-first-served basis, until the deadline date. If a trip is oversubscribed, a waiting list may be drawn up.
We are always keen to know which type of production members like to see. Having said that, tastes differ and you can’t please everyone all the time! There is no membership fee. Theatres always expect tickets to be paid for well in advance in order to supply a group rate, so forward planning is essential.
As of March this year, owing to various changes in personal commitments, the village no longer has a representative on the Committee. Some members from Minchinhampton kindly volunteered however, and the committee now consists of four Minch residents. Many thanks to them! Particular thanks should be made to Anne Mustardé, who successfully ran the group for ten years prior to this.
