Director's Notes

Welcome to this performance of Agatha Christies, A Murder is Announced.  It is often a challenge to find a cast of 11 in a small club such as ours, and even more so finding young actors to take on roles.  I have been fortunate to be blessed with achieving both these aims and also to introduce new members of the club.  I hope you will enjoy there performances and characterisations.


Of course there is always the behind the scenes team who have dedicated their time on Sunday and Wednesday mornings to build, paint, light and find the props, costumes and décor to set the scene for the inevitable case for Miss Marple to solve.  Without these folk we could not bring you this or other productions and I am eternally grateful


Teamwork is everything in a production such as this and as a group we are looking for new members whether experienced or not both backstage and to thread the boards.


Finally a huge thank you to you, the audience, who support the Salterton Playhouse and keep theatre alive in Budleigh.  Its always a pleasure to perform in this wonderful venue.
