Ladykillers 2

Capacity audiences at each performance at the Community Centre, have been treated to Ashton Hayes Theatre Club's production of "The Ladykillers"

Every credit must be given to Director & Producer Yvette Owen, for taking on the challenge of the recently released to amateurs, stage adaptation, of a well-known great film. Not only that, but she cast the play entirely with local actors, who had trod the boards in previous AHTC productions.

When staged professionally, the play was performed on a rotating stage---a step too far for Tarvin Community Centre, but the two storey, four room set was cleverly constructed in front of, and on the stage, and students from Reaseheath College Construction Department who had been involved, made a great job in its design and construction.

The play itself is a Black Comedy, revolving around a motley crew of amateur criminals who needed a bolthole in which to divide up their spoils, and under the guise of musicians, rented a room from an elderly widow.

The main characters as the "Gang" were played by Stuart McNeill, James Partington, Ciaran Brennan, Rob Mason, and James Whitelock-Wainwright, and Mrs Wilberforce (the dithering landlady) was delightfully portrayed by Naomi Deynem.
The suitably named Philip Law played the Policeman, and Pam Holland, Liz Weston, Joan Barker, Gill Ridley, Vanessa Cuthbert, Gill Forgave, Kate Harrison, and Margaret Garman were type cast as "the ladies".

All the members of the cast are to be congratulated on their performance, with superb sound and lighting effects from the backstage crew adding to the tense atmosphere.

Lady Killers

Ashton Hayes Theatre Club continue to give us professional performances of a high calibre, and we look forward with great anticipation to its future productions.----but I suspect you are going to have to book your seats early!

Note :- Already Auditions for the next Production "My Mother Said I Never Should" (a play by Charlotte Keatley--with 4 lead female parts) are scheduled for Tuesday 31st March at 7.30 p.m in Manley Village Hall. If you would like to be involved in any capacity, please ring Laura 07446951215.
