Arts events happening soon:
Pitton Theatre Club
The Pitton Theatre Club’s first production was directed by Jane Norman-Walker in the early 1970s after the Village Hall was built. Since then there have been revues and pantomimes, many devised and directed by Jean Judd, as well comedies and more serious plays.
The long established Club is currently enjoying a vibrant revival, having attracted new members and staging a very successful series of winter pantomimes and summer murder mystery plays. New staging and theatrical lighting for the Village Hall were installed in 2021 and our performances benefit from the development of a skilled and enthusiastic backstage team. The pantomimes, Sinbad, Beauty and the Beast, Treasure Island and the latest, Camelot, in 2021, have been created with, and greatly enhanced by, the involvement of children, teachers and parents from the local village school.
Rehearsals are informal, relaxed and a source of much good natured laughter, intentional or otherwise. We offer a very warm welcome to anyone who wants try their hand at acting or the dark arts of stage management, including wardrobe and lighting.
Our main focus has been on three performances of the annual pantomime (and the carnival-themed murder mystery) but we hope to expand our offering soon with an additional Spring production.
Pictures and video from the 2013 production of The Holey Estate may be found here.
