The Kintbury Players will be holding further auditions for this Autumn’s Kintbury Production – Brush Up Your Shakespeare. So there is one more opportunity for you to come along to audition for our next KP production. This coming Sunday, 11th September, Gerry is running a workshop at Hungerford Primary School from 2.00 – 4.00 pm.
If you have any friends who may be interested in acting who may like to come along too, they would be very welcome. The show will be cast after this workshop and rehearsals start on Monday 12th September at the Coronation Hall (Committee Room) at 7.30 pm.

A brand new play by Gerry Heaton will be the next Kintbury Players production. “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” will be a  tongue-in-cheek, comedy tribute to Shakespeare. An audition workshop will be held in the next couple of weeks, so watch this space.



Rehearsals for “The Dress Rehearsal”, the brand new play from Julie Carlisle being performed by the Kintbury Players, are coming to an end – as the first night looms. And if the pictures are anything to go by – we are all in for a treat.

Don’t forget performances are this week, Thursday 19th, Friday 20th and Saturday 21st. Tickets  for the Dress Rehearsal still available from the Volunteer Office, Kintbury *next to the Corner Shop, but selling fast. Don’t miss out – especially if you like to see respectable men wearing French maid outfits!

Dress RehearsalThe DRESS REHEARSAL

When it comes to am-dram antics, there is usually more drama, comedy and mayhem in the rehearsals than the actual play. “The Dress Rehearsal” is a brand new play, penned by local playwright Julie Carlisle, in which we see the hilarious going-ons behind the scenes of an am-dram production. The scenes are interspersed with classic well loved sketches from past masters of British comedy.

A fun night is guaranteed for all, with mulled wine and mince pies – all for a good cause to help fund Coronation Hall roof repairs….

Performances: November 19 / 20 / 21st.

Tickets NOW ON SALE  from Volunteer office for next few Saturday mornings:

£10 (includes mulled wine and mince pies)

Don’t miss out !


If The Kaiser Came to Kintbury

“I mean it Dad, I’m nineteen years old and I’ve done nothing good with my life so far! This is my chance and it’s my duty. I mean, there’s no telling what Fritz will do next. Think about it; what if the Kaiser came to Kintbury?”

Come back in time with us to 1914 to what was then the brand new Coronation Hall as we commemorate the story of World War 1 through the eyes of an ordinary Kintbury family.

Members of Kintbury Players and St. Mary’s Drama Group have joined forces to tell this very human tale enlivened by the work of the Great War poets and songs of the time – so dust off your vocal chords!

Seating will be at tables of 8 people with a wartime snack being served in the interval.

Date: Performances 20,21,22nd November 2014

Time: 7.30pm

Place: Coronation Hall, Kintbury


Why not book your tickets (£10 each) as a group from Bastable Brothers Butchers, Church Street, Kintbury and why not dress up in the style of the day (a prize will be awarded for the best dressed table)? There will also be a licensed bar!

Set in the cut-throat world of High fashion, a new murder mystery from the Kintbury Players, penned by Gerry Heaton (he of  the fabulously successful “More Tea Vicar”, last year). Murder, mystery, intrigue – and countless amusing accents. Can YOU solve the mystery?

It is cast from the Kintbury Players – and a few new parents from the St Mary’s, Kintbury and Inkpen Primary School, and written by the ever-prolific Gerry Heaton. Rehearsals have been taking place for the last few months, and the production is live from the 21st June. Tickets available now, (see poster for details).

Lots of fun to be had – so make sure you don’t miss out. Book your tickets now.

Our resident playwright, Gerry Heaton (author of last years roaring success “More Tea Vicar”)  has been beavering away writing a new murder mystery to perform with the Players, Kintbury St. Mary’s CE Primary School PTA and Inkpen Primary School PSA as we did a couple of years ago with ‘More Tea Vicar?’.

This one is called ‘Two Pins for your Chances’ and is set in the cut-throat, high-powered world of the fashion industry. There are twelve parts (four male and eight female) and hopefully we will be able to do some double casting as we did last time.

The main difference is that we will be performing across two weekends with the schools having the first weekend (21st/22nd June) as their fundraisers and Kintbury Players will have the second weekend (28th/29th June) for public performances to the village.

Casting will begin on Sunday 24th

It would be wonderful to have lots of Players involved as this provides the lead for the schools performers who may not have acted since school. Anyone acting will need to be available for both performance weekends and the rehearsals. Please will you all check your diaries and let us know if you are interested in taking part?
