Farce next on stage for Court Players

April 27 2015

The Court Players are rehearsing for their next production, the farce Cash On Delivery.

The Court Players are rehearsing for their next production, the farce Cash On Delivery. The play,  by Michael Cooney, is being performed at The Memorial Hall, Rangeworthy on 11, 12 and 13 June at 7.30pm.  
Cooney extracts every ounce of confusion from his tale, in a comedy that slowly turns increasingly more ridiculous and bizarre.
The Court Players, who have been presenting Drama, Plays, Pantomimes, Musicals, Farces and at The Memorial Hall, Rangeworthy for 56 years.  They won the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) District 14 Award for Outstanding Achievement with their last production of “The Last Resort”.  
The award was presented at the NODA South West Awards Dinner at the Bristol City Centre Marriott Hotel which was attended by over 350 drama addicts from all over the South West.  The production was also nominated for the Best Comedy Award.
In the recent Bristol and Avon One Act Drama Festivals The Court Players received nominations in the Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Play categories.
Ticket enquiries should be addressed to: The Box Office, Mrs Lin Lewis, 61 Shackleton Avenue, Yate, Bristol, BS37 4NW or 01454 321149
The Court Players will be holding an open Rehearsal on Tuesday 19th May at Rangeworthy Hall at 7.30pm where they hope to entice the local community to come along and watch their rehearsal and possibly “read-in” a part or two.  They will also give the public a chance to look backstage and learn all about the hard work involved in putting on a show.  There will also be some displays where examples of previous productions will be on show.  It’s part of Voluntary Arts Week, which shines a light on thousands of amateur societies that contribute creativity and commitment to their communities.
