Play Reading/Pub Night-The Haunted Through Lounge and Recessed Dining Nook at Farndale Castle

by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr

The Farndale Avenue Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society, run by the formidable Mrs Reece have tackled tackle Shakespeare, Dickens, Sci-Fi, G&S, French farce, Murder and musical comedy. In this play- produced by, and occasionally featuring David- which is a sinister, spine chilling mystery of murder, mayhem and Tupperware the ladies deal with the occult and moisturising cream in one fell swoop
Shaw said that "Youth is wasted on the young", so the ladies have cast Thelma and Lottie, an Austrian lady (no Spring chickens) as stranded teenagers in love June and Marty as they seek help in Farndale Castle- occupied by Lady Graves and the mysterious Crematia. Other characters also appear- sometimes even as scripted!
In addition to this bloodcurdling drama, the annual Farndale Laureate will be chosen in the Poetry Reading competition
The reading will be hosted by Phil Braithwaite who will be directing the play for Woodhouse over the Halloween period

2014 AGM

The Woodhouse Players' Annual General Meeting will take place at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 13 May in the Welsh Church Hall 879 High Road Leytonstone E11 1HR. All paid-up members are invited to attend. Wine and nibbles will be served.
The meeting will receive the annual reports from the Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer, offer an opportunity for members to discuss the group's activities and future plans, and elect the Committee for 2014-15.

Members who wish to stand for election for the posts of Chairman, Secretary or Treasurer, or as an ordinary Committee member (up to 7), should submit their name to the Secretary at least 48 hours before the start of the meeting (ie by 7.30pm on Sunday 11 May.)

The Agenda, names of those standing for election, and details of how to submit "postal"/proxy votes will be circulated before the meeting.

Please note that the Chair, Secretary and several Committee members are not standing for re-election so we need people to come forward to help run the group so we can continue our activities. Present Committee members will be happy to talk to members thinking of standing about what is involved.
