The Hawarden Players have completed yet another hugely successful run of shows! a few weeks ago the group performed Sherlock Holmes and the case of the stolen suspender. Audiences braved the heat (we always seem pick the weekends with extreme weather dont we!) in their droves, and joined us for our night of fun and frivolity at the Hawarden Institiute.
The laughs came thick and fast from start to finish, and we had a huge turnout for all three nights – including 2 complete sell out shows on the Friday & Saturday – which in itself is something the group are very proud of and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended!
Photos of the show in dress rehearsal are available in our gallery and here is a small video showing you just some of the tasks that take place during a ‘get in’ the weekend before a performance:
So, moving forward, what is next?
