Countdown to Opening Night
Okay, I need you to go get your diary - or open your calendar if you are technically inclined. Go on, I can wait...
Got it? Good.
Now find 19, 20 & 21 October - I'm assuming it's a 2017 calendar you are looking at! Anything pencilled in for those dates? No? Excellent! Pick one of them and write the following entry:
Now you have an entertaining evening lined up with The Centralian Players' production of Terence Rattigan's play about a Naval Cadet accused of theft and his Father's fight to clear his name. To make sure you have a seat, you can book tickets with the Box Office on: (01923) 227392
Last Sunday saw the first set build get underway and by the end of the day, a large amount of the set had been built and decorated ready for the first rehearsal on stage since auditions back in July.

For those of you who are familiar with the venue and who haven't been there in a while, you will notice a huge transformation has taken place. Gone are the bar and hidden kitchen, replaced with a local cafe called Elvira's, completed with a modernised decor.
If you panicked at the words "Gone are the bar...", you can calm down again - alcoholic drinks are still available, though you are looking at bottled beverages.

Along with the cafe, you will now find that the main door to Henderson Hall is actually at the front of the building instead of round the side, so a bit more direct. Note that there have been changes to the facilities ... all I will say is, I hope you are a friendly bunch!
The Centralians look forward to welcoming you at one of the productions and would be happy to discuss membership with anyone who is interested. Remember, you don't have to act if you don't want to, as there are plenty of roles backstage that need filling!!
See you there!!
