After 18 months of closure due to the pandemic the Penrith Players is set to reopen with a bang. The start of the season will be launched with an open event for the public on Friday the 1st October.
The open event, which runs from 4pm, offers the public the chance to take a tour of the facilities, watch performances, or simply make use of the bar and meet and talk to members. Tours will take a look behind the scenes and see how a play goes from script to a full production.
The Penrith Players is completely reliant on volunteers. There are not only opportunities to act on stage, but also to help with a variety of tasks behind the scenes, including set building & painting, costumes & make-up, sound & lighting, props & stage management. New members, from age 12 upwards, are always welcome and the open event will give you the opportunity to see how you can get involved.
The open evening is free for everyone. Please book by clicking here. Group bookings are available and can be arranged via email email@example.com
The Open Evening is followed closely by the first play for the season, Hounds of the Baskervilles, one of literatures most terrifying stories. This adaptation by Conan Doyle adds a splash of comedy and a twist of slapstick to this well known Sherlock Holmes. The Open Evening will offer the opportunity to get a glimpse of the rehearsals in action.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our theatre.
