Playhouse Facebook Page

You can now be an official 'fan' of The Playhouse, Cheltenham if you belong to social networking site Facebook. By becoming a fan you will automatically receive information every time it is posted to the page, whether it is notification of a forthcoming play reading or audition, tickets going on sale for a forthcoming production or, even more useful, a warning if we're about to sell out!

If you want to join our fans - we already have over 150 in just 4 days - click on the link to the right of this posting and we'll see you there. And please, after you've become a fan, invite any of your friends with an interest in theatre to sign up too!

Blogs and Facebooks

Dear Readers (if there are still any of you out there, as I haven't exactly been blogging much of late)

As more and more people use social networking sites - and this includes a huge number of theatre members - we are going to be setting up a new official Playhouse Facebook page over the next week or so. There has been a basic page there for some time, created by Sarah Roberts, but as the popularity of Facebook has grown it makes sense for us to have a more official presence which will allow us to advertise shows, accept reviews from the public, and generally reach people quickly and easily.

I am currently considering the options regarding this blog. There is no point posting for the sake of posting and if posts aren't made it becomes pointless and obsolete. However, it, too, has proved a useful tool beyond its original intention - a running commentary on the refurbishment - as one posting (the one about the lost shoes) was even referred to in The Stage and others occasionally stirred up some interesting and useful opinions. Some people even said they "enjoyed it" (but then actors are a strange lot).

Death Of A Salesman

We have a handful of seats left for Wednesday and Friday evening, Thursday is sold out and we have 40 seats left for Saturday. The phones are ringing red hot and this is obviously going to be a complete sell out. If you were thinking of making a booking, please do so as soon as possible!

Christmas closing

The box office will be open on Christmas Eve from 3pm - 7pm for the collection of tickets for the final performance of It's A Wonderful Life (which is now sold out).

We wish all our patrons a very merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in the new year, when our productions will include the musicals Red Hot & Cole and Back to the 80s, the plays Death of a Salesman and Ten Times Table and the return of the ever-popular Irish dancing troupe Celtic Circle.
