On May 8th members of
Hartley Arts Group, the Victoria Hall Charity and friends gathered to dedicate
our memorial plaque, fittingly placed at the side of the stage in the Victoria
Hall, to David Walton. A much missed member of our group, who spent so much time
both at our behest, and that of the Victoria Hall Charity, of whom he was a
trustee, working down at the halls.
Our plaque says ”
he made it happen”, a fitting tribute to this talented man, whom we all
miss so much.
Listen very carefully, I shall say this only once!
Be sure to be quick in booking your tickets for our
hilarious June production! Come join Rene in his Café in wartime France, doing
his best to survive amid the chaos caused by both the German Army, the Gestapo
and the Resistance on his premises. Not to mention his turbulent relationship
with his wife Edith, and his secret affairs with both Yvette and Mimi his
waitresses! Oh then of course there is that priceless portrait, which
all parties are plotting to gain, which Rene has hidden in his cellar.
Rehearsals have been a laugh a minute, and our show promises a great night out!
Please note – We are not serving supper on this production. Usual Bar and Coffee Service available.
Auditions for our next production, “Allo, Allo” will take place on Tuesday 26th and Thursday 28th February at 8pm in the Jubilee Hall. If you would like to be considered but can’t make either of these dates then please get in touch with us.
Please also get in touch if you would like to help out in any way.
Ah, Moult-Lightly, I’ve been expecting you!’… A 1960’s themed Bond-spoof-murder-mystery that’s guaranteed to leave you both shaken and stirred!
‘Who Killed the Secret Agent?’ contains all the ingredients of James Bond’s early film outings… the glamour, the gadgets and the gaffes. It takes place in 1961 inside the HQ of the British secret service in London. With the Space Race hotting up, both America and Britain are preparing to send their top agents over to Moscow in a bid to infiltrate the Russian’s cosmonaut programme. Enter the darling of the British secret service, Marcus Moult-Lightly! Agent Double O-M-G is daring, charismatic and handsome, yet completely lacking in all tact and modesty. His previous mission has been a shambles and past mistakes hover over him like a ‘Spectre’.
