Some of our Recent Productions . . .

 

Music Hall at Over Community Centre

Following the success of our Music Hall at Great Stukeley, we staged a follow-up performance at Over Community Centre on 17th October.  Thanks go to all, not least the audience, for making it another great success.  Watch this space to find out how much we raised. 

 

Music Hall at Great Stukeley Village Hall

Our Music Hall performance at Great Stukeley Village Hall on 20th September was a great success, combining a wide selection of material with an enthusiastic cast and an enthusiastic audience, with the result that a good time was had by all!  Thanks go to Stuart Bell for producing and directing the show and to the Stukeley Hall Committee for making us very welcome and providing some excellent food.

Alls Well Banner v2

This production, a Shakespearean comedy, was performed on 10th, 11th & 12th July in ideal surroundings in the Old Vicarage Garden in Over, and was very well received by those who attended.  Despite the looming threat of rain, for which we were fully prepared, we escaped with just a few drops during the Saturday performance only!

30th Anniversary Celebrations

We had a very enjoyable 30th Anniversary meal at the Meridian Golf Club on 9th March, so thanks go to Olive for organising that, Steve for hosting it and John and Alex for spending many happy hours creating various video compilations of previous shows for us to watch.

Those who attended will have seen the booklets that Olive produced for the occasion, and downloadable versions of these are now available - please refer to Olive's email for details.

 

Ebenezer - The PantoEbenezer - The Panto

This show, staged in December 2013, was a resounding success and achieved record audience figures! 

Well done to all those involved, and particularly to Phil Norton, who not only wrote the script, but also produced and directed it (. . . oh yes he did!). 

This was Phil's first major production and he should be very proud of his achievement - as we all are!

The Over Players were sad to announce in 2013 the passing of Graham Ramsden, a loyal member of the group who was our resident lighting expert and also the original creator of this website.  For more information about Graham and his many contributions to the group please click here.
