Bedroom Farce
My goodness 'Bedroom Farce' was amazing, everybody acted so brilliantly! I really enjoyed it and i laughed so much. Well done.

Jack / Beanstalk Another fantastic performance by all.
From begining to end was pure enjoyment. The cast were fantastic.
What more could anybody want in a night out with their family.

Flint Street
Excellent intuitive casting and a funny and sensitive portrayal of this classic - encore!

Mother Goose
This was a golden egg production. Skilfully directed, enthusiastically performed. A good nightpm out.

Blithe Spirit
Totally superb, Every one of the cast were brilliant. Just laughed throughout. A very professional performance by one and all. Captivating-- well done!

Odd Couple
Saw the 'Odd Couple' last night. Brilliant! Loved the untidy set at the start. Fast paced and VERY funny. Well done to all concerned.

Shadowlands
Wow! Shadowlands was an ambitious work to take on but what a triumph. Everyone I've talked to was completely knocked out by it.

I had seen the film and wondered how, with limited resources, a rural drama group would stage the production. Well, I left after the performance on Saturday finding it difficult to come back to real life.

LivingTogether Thoroughly enjoyed "Living Together". Everyone was so well cast and brilliant. It is great to have such talent on our doorstep. Well done to all concerned. Lets have more.

Red Riding Hood Have to say it was an absolutely brilliant performance! A brilliantly cast production - all the cast performed very well.

An Inspector Calls Enjoyed "An Inspector Calls" on Saturday night. The actors were word perfect with excellent diction. Stage setting was perfect to the last detail. Looking forward to the next show.

SPRING PRODUCTION 2020

CRUISE CONTROL

Penned by the genius that brought us 'THE HOUND OF THE BASKETCASES' Dave Stockwin.

DATES: 30th April -1st May - 2nd May
TIME: 7:30pm
AT: Warkworth Memorial Hall Library room

SYNOPSIS

Cruise Control is a bittersweet, sometimes dark comedy which revolves around husband and wife Ken and Liz, a couple in their 50s/60s, who, after some traumatic times, find themselves (in more ways than one) on an Adriatic cruise.

Their roles are large with a good deal of stage time. In addition there are another couple, Charles and Fiona, who are their rather snooty ‘cruise neighbours’. They appear briefly in 3 or 4 moments in the play. There is also a tannoy announcer who is never actually seen (lines would not need to be learned!), an entertainments officer in one scene, a beauty therapist cameo, and a non-speaking ‘deck jogger’.

Obviously Ken and Liz are the key roles. The other six could be doubled quite easily if necessary.


DRAMA GROUP'S DOUBLE DONATION

Two national charities with strong local branches have benefitted from the proceeds of Warkworth Drama Group's production of "My Boy Jack". Commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War 1, the tragic centrepiece of the play about the death in combat of Rudyard Kipling's son,  the highly praised production raised 240 for the Royal British Legion and The Fusiliers Aid Society.

Cheques for 120 were handed over to the two charities by 17-year-old Will Jones who played Jack in the production and Milly Davis, 16, who featured as his sister Elsie.

The presentation took place at Warkworth's Market Cross, and receiving the cheques were President of Amble and Warkworth British Legion Jeff Watson and Fred Calvert (Major retired) of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.

Ralph Firth, who directed the play, said: "Bearing in mind the excellent track records of both organisations in helping services personnel and their families affected by military conflicts it seemed entirely appropriate to make these donations."
Cheques for 120 were handed over to the two charities by 17-year-old    Will Jones who played Jack in the production and Milly Davis, 16, who featured as his sister Elsie.
