September 26, 2016 for 6 performances
Set in a retirement home for musicians, Reginald, Wilf and Cissy, three aging opera singers, plan to mark Verdi’s birthday with an appropriate rendition from their long and successful repertoire.

However the quiet, settled life of the three friends is about to be shattered by the arrival of Jean, once a great diva and former wife of Reg. Is there any chance the four will ever sing together again?

A touching, funny and poignant look at the consequences of growing old, Quartet was first performed in 1999 and made famous by the release of the film of the same name in 2012, starring Billy Connelly, Tom Courtney, Pauline Collins and Maggie Smith. 

Quartet will run in the Dibble Tree Theatre from 26th September to 1st October 2016. Tickets available from £8 (£7 concession) from The Fobel Shop from 10th September.

Behind the Scenes

A few years ago the theatre club put on one of a collection of entertaining plays called “Deckchairs”.

This involved making the audience believe they were on a warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer. No mean feat for late September!

Although “Deckchairs” had only two people on stage at any one time, a veritable army of people had collaborated over the previous months to create that warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer.

They covered many areas and included:- producer, stage manager, stage crew, set designer, lighting manager, sound engineer, props, wardrobe, make-up, publicity, ticket and box office staff, front of house manager, the list is endless.

Without these people there would have been no show. So, remember, belonging to a theatre club can encompass many different interests, from simply going to the Theatre, through to set design!

If you are looking for a new interest, why not get in touch. And if treading the boards or making costumes etc is your dream then perhaps we can help make it a reality. Let us make good use all those hidden talents.
