What’s On – This Season

Welcome to The Fellowship Players!

The Fellowship Players have been providing live theatre in Walsall since 1947 and have just celebrated our 70th season. We usually perform four plays a year at the Grange Playhouse, Broadway North, Walsall.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the extended refurbishment of The Grange Playhouse, we are pleased to announce that our next two productions will take place at Blue Coat Church of England Academy, Birmingham Street, Walsall WS1 2ND.

 

OUR NEXT PRODUCTION: FEBRUARY 2018

On a wet and windy night in 1923, a group of people are stranded in an isolated country station for the night after one of the passengers decides to pull the emergency brake cord in order to retrieve his ‘beastly hat’.

Whilst trying to find a solution to their predicament, they are treated to a ghost story by the long serving station master, Saul. Mindful of the local superstition surrounding the station’s history, he refuses to stay with the passengers and they are left alone in the cold, damp waiting room wondering whether or not any of them will get a peaceful night…

OUR SECOND PRODUCTION: APRIL 2018

When Bernard Ridley receives an unexpected telephone call it starts a chain of events including hidden skeletons, tampered evidence and suicide. Or is it? Bernard’s brother, Paul, discovers Bernard’s body and with the help of Bernard’s cousin Elizabeth and their young nephew, the trio set about covering up the suicide to make it look like murder so they can claim the insurance payout. It all gets more complicated with the arrival of Det. Insp. Parkins and the deception continues to try to keep the Police from uncovering the truth.

OUR THIRD PRODUCTION: DATE AND VENUE TO BE CONFIRMED

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Amateur Dramatic Society ladies mount yet another assault on the classics with a startlingly original production of “Macbeth” staged to get them to the Welwyn Garden City finals. Things do not go exactly to plan….. Under the carefully mascaraed eye of adjudicator George Peach, all events conspire hilariously against them. No previous knowledge of Shakespeare is needed to realise that the Farndale ladies’ unique interpretation of this tragic play isn’t exactly what the Bard had intended …. there is considerably more (unintentional) comedy for a start. This is Macbeth as you’ve never seen it before!

The Fellowship Players present:
