MOUNT Barker’s Plantagenet Players are well into rehearsals for their next show, Hatches, Matches, Dispatches (and other life snatches!), a variety show that’s sure to hit the trigger a deep response in your tummy muscles.
We’ve all been hatched, possibly have found our match, and most certainly will be dispatched, so everyone can relate to the themes of this show.
Most of the script and song parodies have been written by evergreens Charmaine Gadenne and Helen Jeffery, whose quirky senses of humour are well served.
Charmaine joined the Players to tread the boards in 1995, and has written a variety of plays and pieces for the group over the years.
Helen joined the club way back in the dark ages of 1979 and has many plays up her sleeve, as well as having acted in numerous parts.
For this show there is also a new writer on the block, Sue Smith, who wrote a wonderful short play titled Farmer Needs a Wife, whose characters ooze charm and humour.
The show will also introduce two new faces, Aaron Pocock and Grace Russell, who will be making their debuts in some hilarious sketches.
Grace’s parents, Brian and Kristy, are veteran performers in the group.
Hatches, Matches, Dispatches (and other life snatches!) opens on November 1 at the Plantagenet District hall, with additional performances on November 2, 8 and 9.
Tickets are $20 adult and $15 senior, from Bub 2 Mum, or by phoning 0447 656 105.
Our opening night charity will help the West Plantagenet Pony Club buy equipment for a dressage arena and source outside coaches to teach their members.
