Upcoming Performance

The Hawarden Players are thrilled to announce our next play:

CATCHING THE EARLIER BUS will take place on the 25th, 26th and 27th July 2019. Tickets for this barking mad comedy are on sale from our TICKETS PAGE now!

Judy returns from holiday to her job as receptionist in a vet’s practice, to find things have changed while she has been away. One of the partners has been hospitalised with appendicitis, and Mr Skarowitz, a locum from eastern Europe, appointed to fill in.

He has re-trained to become a vet, and it is probably best not to ask what his original job was. His methods are unorthodox, as is his equipment which includes items from a DIY store, a joke shop, various kitchen appliances, a sewing machine and even something from the local zoo! Although he speaks good English, his understanding of it is entirely literal.

Cue a series of misunderstandings with patients, some of which have unexpected outcomes, none more so than with Miss Fylde’s rabbit. Oh, and Mrs Kent’s dog.

Despite the mayhem going on about them, nothing stops Judy telling her colleague, Sally, all the gossip from her holiday to Greece…. or should that be Spain!?

Come down to Hawarden Institute between 25-27th July to find out all the goings on within Burgess & Anderson Veterinary Practice!

Trailer & All The Info!

Here is your preview of what to expect from Camelot: A Knight To Remember!

The kingdom of Camelot is in turmoil.  King Arthur has died and, despite her best efforts, Queen Qwynydd Dear has been unable to find a new husband in time to save the monarchy.

The Knights of the Rowdy Table are next to useless and the evil Morganna (Arthur’s half sister) is waiting, ready to snatch the crown.

The only thing that is standing in her way is Lester The Jester.  He’s always wanted to be a knight, and now is his chance.  Assisted by the Knights themselves, Merlin the Magician, Harriet and Lester journey to find the mystical Lady of the Lake, who can lead them to Excalibur, and attempt to save Camelot from the wicked Morganna.  There is just one problem.  The Lady of the Lake is on her holidays in Orlando, and she’s left things in the not so capable hands of her cousin.

It’s now a race against time through the dark and creepy forest, dodging the ghosts along the way.

Join the Hawarden players at the 2018 pantomime to find out who will reach Excalibur first and win the crown of Camelot

Our Next Production…

Well, Summer is over, and the group are about to meet up once more, and begin rehearsals for pantomime!

So now seems like the perfect moment to announce what the show will be….. (Drumroll sound effect)

Camelot: A Knight To Remember will be our chairperson, Fiona Burdsall’s fourth consecutive self scripted pantomime for performance by the Hawarden Players.

Every year her scripts are praised for their plot, characters and for how much fun the provide audience members.  We are certain this year will be no different!

The group will be having our first meeting of the season, and informal readthrough on Tuesday 12th September, followed by auditions for parts on Thursday 14th September.  Both meetings will take place at the Hawarden Institute at 8pm.

We would love to see some new faces coming along to meet the group and join in the panto foolishness, so if you are interested, please feel free to drop by for either meeting, or drop us a message at hawarden.players@gmail.com to ask any questions you may have!

Keep checking the website, and our Facebook and Twitter pages for all the latest news

 

Less than a week!

Here we are, with just a few days to go!

The final touches are being put together on the group’s latest production.

The Hawarden Players are in their final few rehearsals before performances of their upcoming whodunnit ‘Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders’ start on Thursday, at the Hawarden Institute.

The play, directed by Denise Garland, tells the story of crime novelist Agatha Crusty (Pronounced Croo-sty) arriving in the usually quiet village of Chortleby for a break, only to discover some suspicious goings on centred around the All Saints Village Hall, and its committee members.

From Toby, the Vicar, and Eleanor, Chair of the committee, to Harry Knott the caretaker and identical twins Olivia and Oliver Truscott-Pratt, there are plenty of suspects. And with an investigating officer as incompetent as D.I. Twigg, there are plenty of laughs as the murders begin to pile up.

The production has the perfect mix of twists, turns, red herrings, laughs and surprises that it is bound to appeal to all who think of themselves as a local Inspector Morse or Miss Marple, all while providing an evening of great entertainment.

Performances take place Thursday 20th, Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd July at the Hawarden Institute at 7.30pm.
