Happiest Days of Your Life

Hawarden Players, are heading back to school for their latest play, The Happiest Days of Your Life by John Dighton and, if you think that the title of the play sounds a little familiar then you’d be right! The play itself was turned into a very memorable film of the same title starring Margaret Rutherford and Alastair Sim back in the good old days of black and white.

The story begins when evacuated all girls school St Swithens is sent to reside with all boys school Hilary Hall. When the two schools collide the stage is set for all sorts of hilarity! Girls meet boys, Masters meet Mistresses and it’s chisels drawn and tuck boxes at twenty paces! Add to that the mystery ‘tool bag treacler’, a militant caretaker and two sets of unexpected parents and you have a recipe for a rip roaring farce that is guaranteed to make watching this one of the happiest and memorable days for our audience too!

Agatha Crusty and the Pantomime Murders

We are excited to announce tickets are now on sale for our summer play. It’s a little later than usual but we promise you an evening of laughter.

Agatha Crusty (pronounced Croosty!) arrives in Gigglington for the annual book festival when she stumbles across the local amateur dramatic group who are rehearsing their forthcoming Pantomime. All seems well at first until a series of what Police believe are ‘accidents’’. Agatha is not so sure and puts her sleuthing skills to work, while the group hilariously try to solve their dwindling cast dilemma. As the bodies stack up so do the laughs in this classic whodunnit.

Join us at Hawarden Institute on Thurs 1st, Fri 2nd or Sat 3rd September 2022 to be a part of the ‘going’s on‘ in Gigglington Village Hall 

Tickets can be purchased by calling 01244 543229, by visiting the Hawarden Post Office or on our website by clicking here
