A date for your diary. . .Yes, it's time to sort out the sheds, tidy the gallery other storage areas, and do any necessary maintenance on our kit. An essential part of keeping Woodhouse shows on the road, and a chance to catch up with colleagues. (This date will also be the get-out/get-in for our two summer shows.)
Members and non members very welcome to this free event.
Parts for all ages.
Ever thought of directing a play for Woodhouse?
Our very own Thom will be leading a Directors' Workshop at the Welsh Church Hall on Saturday May 25th starting at 2pm - come along and find out about his approach.
The Workshop will be suitable those who have not directed yet or those with experience who would like to develop their skills. There has been a shortage of members proposing plays at Play Choosings recently, so we need more people to get the skills and confidence to have a go at directing!
If you would like to attend please email Ian Powell. Go for it!
It's that time of year again where we get together to catch up as a group on: what we have achieved over the year; discuss what we want to do next year; and vote in the next committee.
If you wish to stand for the committee please get another person to propose you and send this to the secretary 48 hours before the AGM. If you have any queries regarding standing for the committee please look at committee page or contact one of the committee members, who will be happy to answer any questions.

Members and Non Members are very welcome to join us for this reading of the French classic.... Tartuffe.
Oliver Clement will be hosting.
Tartuffe (1669) is one of the most famous plays by Moliere, the comedy genius of the French classical period. Louis XIV, the "Sun King" was himself a patron of actor-manager Moliere's company. A high bourgeois family has been infiltrated by Tartuffe, who has convinced the head of family Orgon that he is a man of great piety and goodness who has fallen on hard times. The rest of the family and a garrulous servant attempt to persuade Orgon of his error. The stakes are high, and Orgon's wife Elmire is driven to desperate measures... The play is written in verse, slick rhyming couplets of 10 syllables in American poet Richard Wilbur's exuberant translation first published in 1971. There are 11 speaking parts.
Afterwards continue the discussion in the pub.
If you have a copy of the play please bring it along.
