Hay Fever @ Husthwaite by Husthwaite


Calling all Budding Actors, Back Stage folks and Creative talents.....
We are delighted to announce that Husthwaite's taste for amateur dramatics lives on! Following the huge success of Cinderella, where more than 50 people in our small community threw themselves into this ambitious project, we are ready to take on the next Am Dram challenge! Lottie Alexander (you may also know her as Rapping Gran or Hobbler!) has stepped forward to Direct our next village production, Noel Coward's Hay Fever. Lottie will be more than ably assisted by Richard Wood and Mike Wells as well as a few others who I know are keen to help out.

Hay Fever is one of Noel Coward's most durable comedies, continuing to delight audiences with its astute observations on family relationships and rivalries. The action takes place in the house of the Bliss family over the course of a weekend. Judith Bliss, a retired actress, her writer husband David, and their two grown-up children, Simon and Sorel, have all privately invited guests for the weekend, unbeknownst to anyone else. Hay Fever provides a shrewd, farcical look at a dysfunctional family oblivious to their ill-mannered behaviour.

If you are interested in acting, stage design, sound, make-up, costumes or simply being part of another community led production, come along to an open evening on Wednesday 12th September at 7.30pm. If you can't make this date, simply register your interest with Lottie on or 869002. Performances will be in February 2019, so plenty of time!
