Players mark 10th year with ‘Best of’
You realise a ‘pop band’ has been around for quite a few years when a ‘Best of’ compilation of their ‘Greatest Hits’ appears.
The Whitefield Players, who present their shows in the Horfield United Reformed Church, believe this, the year of their 10th anniversary, is an ideal time to cash in on this quick nostalgia trend and present a show made up from many of the best bits from the shows they have presented over the past decade.
For a title they have selected “Oh Yes We Did”, which reflects the fact that they started with a pantomime and still draw some of their biggest audiences from presenting this ever popular form of theatre.
Tracy Rogers, who has been involved with the company from the very beginning, is in charge of proceedings with Loretta Hedges ensuring that the musical side of the show is up to standard, as she does regularly for The Northavon Youth Theatre productions.
Loretta will also take care of the accompaniment for the show which boasts a cast of more than 40, ranging in age from four to 83.
Those figures reflect the club’s policy of encouraging the younger element, while, at the same time, making full use of the older members whenever possible.
Very much aware of the other things that are on offer to the public this summer, The Whitefield Players have chosen June 3, 4 and 5 for their production dates, which gets them in just before the vast majority of the public become glued to their television screens watching the World Cup.
