An open evening with cheese and wine is to be held at Penrith Playhouse on Saturday, 6th April, from 7pm.
As part of an on-going drive to increase awareness of the fantastic community theatre facility in the town’s Auction Mart Lane, behind Morrisons, the open evening will provide an opportunity to “take a peek behind the scenes” and chat to actors, directors and technical team members who volunteer their time to ensure the productions which are put on are of the highest possible quality.
On hand to answer questions will be chairman Roger Bird, theatre committee chairman Mike Head, membership secretary Emma Johnson, Ian Baker, head of communications, plus Liz Acland, Robert Pottinger, James Shorrock and Keith Spence, who are all directing plays this year.
There will also be a selection of Wensleydale cheeses — made at Hawse, North Yorkshire — to sample as part of the evening which is being organised by a newly established social committee for the theatre.
A spokesman said: “Anybody who is interested in finding out what makes the Penrith theatre tick, or is keen to get involved, should definitely come along. Potential sponsors are also welcome.”
