The Players’ youth group recently took part in the North Essex Guild one act play festival staged at the Headgate Theatre in Colchester. The play ‘Lunch Hour’ was written by John Mortimer and directed by Michael Poole. Congratulations go to Ben Maytham who won Best Young Actor and to Holly Snowling who won Best Young Actress.
The Players are also looking forward to a celebration of 40 years of the Orpen Players with a Music Hall showcase on 29th – 31st October. The entertainment will comprise songs (both comic and tragic), sketches and skits, melodrama and monologues in typical music hall style up to and including the Second World War.
