Earnest players offer four for one
Four-in-one show by community players
FOLLOWING their successful January pantomime Aladdin, Dreamdragons are staging another major show this Friday and Saturday at Singleton village hall.
Taking short plays or scenes from longer ones is a process they have used for several years to stretch the group and give members the opportunity to try different roles.
The latest production is called The Importance of Being Bugsy and combines the titles of The Importance of Being Earnest and Bugsy Malone, plus two other plays The Bathroom Door and Hansel and Gretel.
Running for two nights only, performances start at 7.30pm and tickets, priced £4.50 for adults and £3.50p children, are available by calling 01233 639427.
The show will include the final scene from Oscar Wilde’s wittiest comedy, directed by Jill Harrison.
Hansel and Gretel has been adapted from the Brothers Grimm original by Kim Andrews, who directs the play for younger members of the group and Dawn Sampson leads the production team on The Bathroom Door in the gentle 1920s hotel comedy.
The final scene from the musical Bugsy Malone, directed by Janet Gough, has been toned down to suit family audiences in a production that replaces grenades and guns with cream-topped pies.
