Haddenham Youth Theatre presents a night of comedy and entertainment on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th July.
Haddenham Youth Theatre Group is busy putting the final touches on their forthcoming two plays. The Junior Group are presenting 'Anyone for Bison' by Bill Tordoff — a one-act comedy costume drama in which the clash between English settlers and Native Americans is resolved in a uniquely American way!
The Senior Group are presenting a play by Simon Brett "Mr Quigley's Revenge'. The amiable Mr Quigley is at the centre of community life lovingly organising the bookings in Frinsley Village Hall. When Keith plans to sell the site and launches an attack on Mr Quigley, he has taken on more than he imagined for Quigley is wilier than he looks!
"Both groups have been working very hard on this production and this time we have mixed and matched, with some of the junior group taking part in the senior play and vice versa." said Lynne Colley, Director. "If you like theatre, please come and give them your support and enjoy a great evening's entertainment! We will also have a licenced bar available before the performance and during the interval too."
The plays take place on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th July at Haddenham Community Junior School (doors open at 6.30p.m.) and tickets are available to purchase in advance through Blooming Fruity, Banks Parade, Haddenham.
Haddenham Youth Theatre is drawn from young people from Haddenham, Dinton, Stone and Chinnor who get together every Monday evening to rehearse their plays. For those readers who like the sound of a great evening of theatrical entertainment and wish to encourage youngsters in their community to engage in worthwhile pursuits, please lend your support to help make it all worthwhile!
