“Dick Barton, Special Agent” by Phil Wilmott

“This is the BBC broadcasting from London. It’s time for our next exciting spring production – Dick Barton, Special Agent.”

An hilarious send up of the classic 1940s BBC radio serial, where intrepid sleuth Dick Barton faces his arch-enemies Baron Scarheart and Marta Heartburn in a fiendish plot to disrupt the tea supply to Britain, and again aims to rid the world of evil in the name of decency and patriotism. Please come, and tell all your friends, it’s going to be a very funny show!

Socially distanced performances on the 18th, 19th and 21st May (matinee and evening shows) at the Watermans Theatre. Tickets available on the Watermans website or by ringing 020 8232 1010. Recommended for 12 years old and above.

Jack and the Beanstalk – a brilliant show!

Feeling exhausted but very happy after a brilliant show week. Jack and the Beanstalk was absolutely fantastic and our audiences LOVED it! Here are some backstage photos of cast and crew to give you a flavour of what happens behind the scenes.

Our members range from the age of 5 years to 75, and we are a very friendly and welcoming group, so don’t be shy to come along. We put on two shows a year – a spring production in May/June and a pantomime in November, along with other fundraising events. We rehearse in various places around Brentford on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Annual membership is £30 adults/£15 children.

Our next spring production starts rehearsing in January 2022 and we will cast our pantomime in June/July. If you are interested in taking part in either of these, please contact us

AUDITIONS for main speaking roles are on the 30th June at 2.30pm also at the Mission Hall. Don’t worry if you have not auditioned before. It will just involve reading a character’s lines in front of Alan (the director) and probably Jennie (producer) – it’s not too scary, so please don’t be put off ?

List of characters: Fairy Godmother, Dandini, Prince Charming, Buttons, Baron Hardup, Dumpling (A pantomime horse), Lady Devilia Hardup, Cinderella, Snitch (Broker’s Man), Snatch (Broker’s Man), Cheryl (Ugly sister), Beryl (Ugly sister), Major Domo, Chorus of Villagers, Animals, Palace Guests, Henchmen, Spiders etc.

If you do not want a main speaking role, but to be in the chorus or help backstage, you do not need to audition but come to sign up on the 8th of September when rehearsals start (2.30pm Mission Hall). I will let you know more details of this nearer the time.

Please let me know if you are interested in taking part but can’t come to the auditions because we may be able to fit around you. We want to be able to audition all those who want to do it.

Please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested in joining us – everyone is welcome over the age of 5. Also remember we love to have people who want to help backstage as well!

I look forward to seeing you soon.
