A horticultural victory for Pericles

September 15, 2017 - Reuben Milne

We found out today that the fine people at ‘Huntingdon in Bloom’ received awards a-plenty for their floral displays this year, one of which was the rather fantastic ‘Pericles’ display which we were proud to sponsor.

Huntingdon In Bloom received a GOLD award under the large town category as well as the Local Authority Award for the best floral displays in East Anglia.

Our congratulations go out to Peter and his team at Huntingdon Town Council for the fantastic work they do and for the huge amount of effort put into Huntingdon’s floral displays and green spaces all year round.

 Let’s see what they can rustle up for Richard III next year! 

Congratulations to all involved.

Wrap up warm, it is summer…

June 29, 2017 - Reuben Milne

Whilst it may have rained off our first night (Tuesday), the good old British summertime didn’t intervene yesterday (Wednesday) and Pericles undertook his perilous quest under the stars in the Jacobean Courtyard at The George Hotel in Huntingdon last night to warm applause from an audience who needed all the warmth they could get!  And because we are currently experiencing temperatures ‘slightly’ lower than we’ve become accustomed to, we do recommend anyone joining us for our open air adventures should layer-up, bring a blanket or two and even pack a hat. You’ll thank us for it!  Remember to follow us on facebook to get the latest updates on the weather and if it’ll affect the performance for that night.

Auditions for The Diary of Anne Frank

May 31, 2017 - Reuben Milne

 

With our summer production only four weeks away, our thoughts turn to our next venture, The Diary of Anne Frank as part of  SaTG In The Parlour

This classic show (based on the Oscar-winning adaptation) will run from 29 November until 2 December 2017 at the recently refurbished All Saints church in Huntingdon High Street.

Directed by Ray Livermore, the show offers fascinating roles for actors of all ages, whether it be the youthful Anne, Margot and Peter (all of whom we’d be looking at actors aged around 18 due to the intensity of the schedule) their parents (all of whom are strong roles in their own right) or the grumpy old man Herr Dussel. The people living in the annex also provide challenging roles, all of whom get their moments to shine. We then have the supportive roles of Miep and Kraler who could be played by someone of almost any age.

Auditions will take place on the weekend of the 15th/16th July at The George hotel in Huntingdon. Please email Ray on parlour@satg.org.uk or call 07894 144964 to book your slot. We look forward to seeing you bring this period of history back to life.
