THE RETURN OF INSPECTOR PRATT

Author: Peter Gordon

Following last year’s success with ‘Secondary Cause of Death’, the Latimer Players are pleased to announce that Inspector Pratt will return in April to solve more murders in ‘Murdered to Death’ written by Peter Gordon. In this production you will meet some of the same characters again, along with numerous others for the hapless inspector to interrogate in his clumsy fashion. The Latimer Players first performed this play in 1998 and two members of the original cast will perform those same parts again, older and wiser!
This hilarious spoof is set in a country manor house with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight - Bunting the Butler, an English Colonel, a shady French art dealer and his moll, the bumbling inspector and a well-meaning sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes. They are all caught up in the mysterious death of the house’s owner, but it soon appears that the murderer does not stop at one murder.
Will the murderer be unmasked before everyone meets their doom, or do the audience die laughing first?
There will be café style seating and you are invited to bring your own drinks and nibbles.
Every effort will be made to seat parties together on tables of 4,6,8 or 10 people.

26th, 27th and 28th April 7:30pm

My name is Josh Gardner and I am a 17 year old Bass Guitarist from Dorset.

I am looking to gain experience playing for musical theatre productions locally, for free.

I am looking to go into pit music work after education so this experience will be worth far more than any fees.

I have played Bass for around 4 years now and have lots of experience playing in a rock band, other ensembles as well as accompanying solo performers and of course for musical theatre in and out of school.

NEWS RELEASE - Haunted Theatres LIVE
For immediate release: 15 January 2018
Media Relations: Carol Lee
Tel: 07739 400946 Email: carol.lee.marketing@gmail.com
Twitter A/c: LuvC____ and @Hauntedtheatres


Haunted Theatres Live

An exciting brand-new play opens its doors for the first-time next month, in Stevenage.
The newly formed drama company, Unity Players of Hertfordshire presents, Haunted Theatres LIVE, as a guest production, at The Lytton Theatre in Vardon Road.
Written by Carol Lee-Brown, it is about a small independent paranormal investigation company, who have conducted several ‘LIVE TV’ broadcasts in Haunted Theatres, over the last few years. The theatre ‘owner’ has invited The Team, to conduct a paranormal investigation, to see if the tales of it being haunted, are in fact true. What happens during the LIVE broadcast, on and off screen, are all played out for the audience to see as and when it happens.
Carol said ‘I got the idea for the play, when I joined The Lytton Theatre, and was told by several people that it could possibly be haunted. Being interested in the paranormal world myself, the idea of writing a play about a LIVE TV broadcast and all the production side to it, when the cameras are not rolling, quickly came to me, and Haunted Theatres LIVE was born.’
She continued ‘With the Director Slava Budin-Jones, and the cast we personally ask to play the roles, the words of mine are truly lifted from the page and the characters are brought to life.’
Adding ‘It is a very technical play to produce, with videos being shown. It even has its own theme tune and title sequence. The play is more than just action on the stage, as soon as the audience walks through the doors, they are ‘IN’ the play.’
Proceeds from these performance dates will go towards The Lytton Theatre New Theatre Fund. Details of the project can be found on their web site www.lyttonplayers.co.uk
Haunted Theatres LIVE runs from Thursday 22nd February to Saturday 24th February, at The Lytton Theatre, Vardon Road, Stevenage, at 7.45pm each night.
Tickets can be bought online at hauntedtheatreslive.co.uk

Agatha Crusty and the Health Spa Murders

Author: by Derek Webb

Agatha Crusty and the Health Spa Murders

Crime novelist and amateur detective Agatha Crusty (pronounced ‘croosty’) decides that a spell at a health spa is just what she needs to recharge her batteries and give her inspiration for her latest book. She books into Seventh Heaven Health Spa owned by Andy Eden who started it after the early death of his wife Evie. There she meets the other participants of the health spa weekend: members of the Zara Fernandez sales team who are there as a reward for being the highest achievers in terms of sales for the year. She also meets two members of the Seventh
Heaven team: Abigail the therapist and Dmitri Popov, a Russian therapist specialising in Venik massage.
Things start well with the women experiencing the choice of spa treatments on offer (Dmitri’s Venik massage using birch twigs being especially popular) until one of the group is found drowned, presumed murdered, in the Moor Mud Bath.
Enter Detective Inspector Simon Aster – a DI with a speech impediment and a penchant for complicating the simplest detection methods. When other murders follow, Agatha decides to take matters into her own hands, investigating among other things the significance of the apple tree in the health spa’s ‘Garden of Eden’.
There is of course a very healthy dose of humour throughout, but, being an Agatha Crusty murder mystery, this is also a genuine mystery with an ingenious plot to tax the little grey cells of the audience at the same time as making them laugh out loud.

Hi Im 50 is there a group for me?

Peter's response:

Hello Julia,

The answer is yes of course, age is no barrier to joining an amateur dramatics group.

You don’t say where you are located and I’m afraid I probably wouldn’t know the groups or schools in your area and so would be unable to make any recommendations. I suggest you take a look at the Groups section of the www.dramagroups.com website and check the groups and schools in your County/Region. There will be groups and societies listed with contact details. If in doubt click on the group name or logo and that will take you directly to the group’s own website. In my experience most groups and schools would welcome any new member with open arms.

Best of luck, let me know how you get on.

Peter
