Beginners Please! – is the traditional call heard backstage at theatres all over the world from the National in London to the tiniest of amateur dramatic companies held in the humble church hall.
It signals the imminent start of the play/opera/pantomime and quickens the pulse of those who need to be on stage as the curtains open.
The Sheringham Players, who are privileged to perform at Sheringham Little Theatre have heard the same call to arms for almost 50 years. However on 21 and 22 March at Sheringham Little Theatre, this call will have another meaning.
The Sheringham Players have been recruiting new members in order to keep going strong for another 50 years. To showcase the new ‘beginners’ (both on-stage and back) they are presenting something a little different. – a mix of short plays from 5 minutes to a full one act, ranging from sad through to downright silly – and from the pens of authors such as Harold Pinter and local favourite, David Tristram.
The whole evening will be compéred with short introductions to each play to set the scene.
The plays will include Score by Lyndon Brook, Night by Harold Pinter, Doggies by Jean McConnell and What’s for Pudding by David Tristram
The Sheringham Players will present ten plays each evening and of course members of the audience can take full advantage of the beautifully refurbished Hub Bar and Café. Please go along on 21 or 22 March and be in at the ‘beginning’ of the next 50 years of The Sheringham Players.
