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.

Tickets are available by clicking this link by calling 01244 531085, or on the door.

Tickets are now on sale for Hawarden Players’ next show: Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders!

Agatha Crusty (pronounced Croosty) is a crime novelist. She’s also pretty adept at solving crimes. And when her sister-in-law Alice invites her to spend a few days with her in the village of Chortelby, it’s not long before she gets caught up in a series of murders which seem connected with the village hall.

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, you can guarantee it won’t be a breeze catching the culprit.

The Hawarden Players will be giving you an evening filled with both hilarity and suspense as the tension increases, as does the body count!

Performances will take place on Thursday 20th, Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd July 2017 at the Hawarden Institute.  Doors and bar open at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.

Not Long Now…

Rehearsals are flying by for the Hawarden Players’ next production, ‘Gone to Pot’ which takes place later this month.  Following the success of their winter pantomime, the ‘Ice Queen’, things are heating up, as their latest play transports us to an allotment where many secrets have been buried deep beneath the ground.

GTP group

This home-grown comedy, written by group chairperson, Fiona Burdsall, introduces us to the head of the allotment committee, Brigadier Fortesque, who threatens to turf out anyone who lets standards slip on the gardening patch.  His long suffering wife has competition from Lady Smythe-Warren who seems to share more than a passion for just growing vegetables with the Brigadier.  Sharon struggles to control her kids from tormenting just about everyone, none more so than Annabelle, who just wants to start her own family, and just what are sisters Emily and Agnes hiding behind their shed door?

Fiona has created a script filled with laughs, drama and some lovely tender moments which the 11 strong cast are now putting their signature Hawarden Players mark on, and the set has already been built, bringing the outdoors, indoors!

Please visit our Purchase Tickets page to secure your seat before they sell out!
