 It is with great sadness we announce the passing

 of James Dandridge ……… 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 He was a joy to know and appeared in “Going Postal” as the very

 senior junior postman Groat, he certainly made the part his own ..

 the facial expressions were wonderful , “ A Bunch of Amateurs “ as

 the insufferable Nigel .. a part he relished and so different to his own  

 generous personality.

 

 He played Paul the murder suspect in “The Perfect Murder

 challenging him to play nasty, and finally the inimitable Toad in

 “Wind in the Willows”  A part he was thrilled to play alongside his

 children Grace and Joe who played stoats.

 He was such a larger than life character, funny, a brilliant actor and

  more than that our friend.

 

 He was to have directed “Canterbury Tales” and also play the Miller,

 but the wicked brain tumour that he had battled for more than 12 years

 returned ,and though he tried so hard to carry on  he could not. After

 surgery and chemo we thought he was winning the battle but sadly

 he finally succumbed.

 

 We are all devastated. We will miss your smiling face James.

 R.I.P and keep entertaining wherever you may be xx

Like all other theatre companies both Professional and Amateur, we have been in a state of limbo with theatres closed and have been unable to rehearse because of the rules of 6

 

BUT !!

From May 17th we will back in our hall rehearsing again….

 

As the Palace theatre will not be opening again until the autumn, we

have decided to present a very funny double bill :-

 

 

“Last Tango in Little Grimley & Lockdown in Little Grimley”

 

These will be performed in our rehearsal hall which luckily is very big

and has a stage and curtains.

 

We will be following all government guidelines and sanitising seating

before and after shows.

 

 

More News……………………….....

 

 

“Searching For Dr Branovic” has now been postponed to July 2022.

 

so “The Fulstow Boys” a true story of World war 1, is booked for November 2021 and  then “Guards Guards” by Terry Pratchett is pencilled in for November 2022.

 

Please watch this space for new updates…….

 

We are looking to gain new members ..so now is a good time to pop along ( after June 21st when the rule of 6 inside no longer applies) plenty of opportunities to audition !
