2019 Sea­son at Cas­tle Hill Play­ers Prom­ises to en­ter­tain and de­light au­di­ences

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Cas­tle Hill Play­ers is proud to an­nounce its 2019 sea­son which prom­ises to en­ter­tain, de­light and en­gage au­di­ences with a va­ri­ety of plays. Pro­gram Di­rec­tor, An­nette Snars, is ex­cited about the 2019 sea­son of plays at The Pav­il­ion. “We have six ex­pe­ri­enced and tal­ented di­rec­tors, pre­sent­ing six en­ter­tain­ing plays of di­verse topic, genre, time and place, with fas­ci­nat­ing char­ac­ters and sto­ries. Se­lect­ing a sea­son of plays is one of the most im­por­tant tasks the mem­ber­ship de­cides upon each year. I was im­pressed by the qual­ity of plays vy­ing for se­lec­tion for 2019; we were spoilt for choice, so it was ex­cit­ing to ar­rive at the fi­nal six. It means that once again Cas­tle Hill Play­ers are pro­vid­ing res­i­dents of the Hills District and be­yond a year of out­stand­ing the­atre, lo­cally pro­duced, as has been the case for over 60 years now. It’s what we are known for, our rep­u­ta­tion is se­cond to none and we in­tend to con­tinue in this way for many, many years to come.” We start the sea­son with

Bloody Mur­der. This is not your usual mur­der-mys­tery. It’s Agatha Christie, it’s Pi­ran­dello, no, it’s Bloody Mur­der! Dark Voy­ager finds us in the depths of 1960s Hol­ly­wood where we meet Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, Joan Craw­ford and Bette Davis in the home of in­fa­mous gos­sip colum­nist Hedda Hop­per in this dark com­edy.

Lead­ing Ladies is a hi­lar­i­ous farce from Ken Lud­wig about two trav­el­ling ac­tors and their quest to make a quick buck. Biloxi Blues, a semi- au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal com­edy from Neil Si­mon. The Di­ary of Anne Frank is a pow­er­ful de­pic­tion of war and the power of the hu­man spirit. We end the sea­son with Nell Gwynn, which takes au­di­ences into the heady the­atre world of Restora­tion Lon­don. It de­picts one of Lon­don’s first fe­male per­form­ers and her re­la­tion­ship with King Charles II.
