Welcome to Hook Players
Ahoy there me hearties!
This year’s Hook Village Panto will be Treasure Island by acclaimed author Ben Crocker. Hook Players put on Ben’s Beauty and the Beast in 2015 – we were so impressed that we read more of his scripts and this one stood out.
Not only will we have Jim Hawkins, Squire Trelawney, Long John Silver and lots of pirates, but a force to be reckoned with – Smugglers’ Cove Womens’ Institute! Oh – and a parrot. We mustn’t forget the parrot!
There will be a reading of the script on Thursday 13th June. Auditions will be on 15th, 16th and 17th July and rehearsals will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting on 10th September. If you’d like to audition for a speaking part, or be in the chorus of villagers, pirates etc. then please email ku.oc1566687486.srey1566687486alpko1566687486oh@su1566687486tcatn1566687486oc1566687486 for details. There are some parts suitable for children, but they must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Perhaps you could both be in the show!
The performance dates will be 29-30th November and 6-7th December. (Evenings on the Fridays and Saturdays, plus an afternoon matinee on the Saturdays.)
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! (Rum is not normally available at the Hook Players bar, but you never know what Long John may persuade the committee to sanction !)
Join in the fun!
It’s not all about being on the stage.
So much goes on backstage including set design, painting and building, making costumes, make-up, sound, lighting and special effects, gathering props or simply helping with the front-of-house on performance nights. If you are interested in getting involved, even if you don’t see yourself treading the boards, please email ku.oc1566687486.srey1566687486alpko1566687486oh@su1566687486tcatn1566687486oc1566687486. There is something for everyone.
If you can’t get involved this time, then please buy a ticket, sit back and enjoy the show.
We are actively seeking plays for future productions and holding play readings, where members read through possible scripts. If you are interested in attending, please send your details via ku.oc1566687486.srey1566687486alpko1566687486oh@su1566687486tcatn1566687486oc1566687486 for more information. These play readings are very informal and you don’t have to read if you don’t want to. It’s a great initial introduction to Hook Players and is a good opportunity to meet the group.
