Dear Readers
So the festive season is over and we all face new resolutions, school, work and hopefully a sense of a fresh start to yet another new year.
I trust that everyone who was fortunate enough to take leave over the festive season, is well rested and ready for the onslaught of a busy year ahead. Especially all the thespians!
Pinelands Players is looking for someone to learn lighting plotting for shows, so we urge anyone who is interested to contact me via email tanya@march.za.net . We look forward to training you!

All members please be advised of our Annual General Meeting taking place on Sunday 24 February 2013. The agenda will be send out by no later than 2 February as per the constitution, so please keep a look out for that.
This edition of the Ad Lib is very brief, but I endeavor to provide a bumper edition at the end of February.
Wishing you all a prosperous and fantastic 2013!
Blessings,
Tanya March

The Grand Opening

What a feast of fun The Grand Opening was in December. Our festive year-end candelight theatre was
very well attended and all the cast and crew (and hopefully the audience) had a great time.
Thank you to all the dedicated committee members and volunteers, director, band and crew who made
this show so successful. This show achieved everything it set out to do: to provide an evening of family entertainment during the Christmas holidays. We are proud to say that, once again, we have introduced some new members to the
society. Welcome to Erika Marais and Adrian di Lollo, and at the same time we managed to entice some others back to the stage, namely Deidre Scodeller and Jacque du Toit.

Donations received

Special thanks to the following people for their
generous donations at The Grand Opening

Welcome to 2013 and let’s hope it will be a fulfilling and successful one for all of us who are involved in amateur theatre.
I hope you all had a good rest over the Festive Season and that you’re starting the New Year full of energy and keen to be involved in all the exciting things we have lined up at the Playhouse over the next twelve months.
It’s Oscar season once more and the CATA panel have given out the list of nominations for the Cape Amateur Theatre Awards.

Well done to you all. There is some very strong competition on the very active Cape Town amateur theatre scene so having your efforts recognised with a nomination is something of which you can be justifiably proud. The full list of nominees is attached with the Prattle.

The Awards evening will be held at the Masque Theatre on Monday 18 March at 19.00 for 19.30. Nominees will receive personal invitations from the panel but both nominees and supporters are advised to book early as seating is limited and the evening is always very well attended. Dress code is smart. Bookings: masquetheatre@mweb.co.za

SOCIAL EVENING FRIDAY 01 FEBRUARY
Our first Playhouse event of the year is being organised by Wayne Hendricks and as it’s Valentine’s month he has given the evening the bittersweet title, Love Starts with a Hug and Ends with a Tear.
Wayne will direct two play readings by Alex Broun. The first is Ten Million Pieces of My Heart, described as a romance by SMS in reverse and stars Lauren Meeser and Andre Brink. The second is obviously the ‘tear’ part of the evening’s title. It’s called Ash and is about Lex who’s dead and wants his ashes spread. The cast in this one will be Judith Herbig and Petra Schiebe.
In the second half of the evening, James Maritz will play host to the popular Check Your Mate game when he will walk couples through four rounds testing their intimate knowledge of each other. The grand prize for the winning couple will be double tickets for all Milnerton Players productions this year.
Couples willing to participate should contact Wayne beforehand at members@milnertonplayers.com
To add to the romantic mood of the evening, the rounds will be interspersed with love songs played by talented acoustic guitarist, Steven Winter.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Bit of useless information on the subject of love:
When Winnie the Pooh was asked by Piglet, “How do you spell love?” he replied, “You don’t spell love, you feel it”
I’m also pretty sure you didn’t know that Friday 18 January is officially called ‘Winnie the Pooh Day’.

PRODUCTIONS
MOON OVER THE BREWERY by Bruce Graham – Direction Sheila McCormick.
Our first production of the year is now fully cast and is already in rehearsal with the following line -up:
Amanda – Lauren Meeser
Randolph – Anton Schäfer
Warren – Simon Speck
Miriam – Elizabeth Van Der Merwe.
Barry Altwig has designed an interesting set and construction has begun early as Barry is also going to be very busy with work projects during the next couple of months.
Lynne Wade also got in on the early bird act by designing this attractive poster in record time.
Miriam in the play is an artist who paints moonscapes and one of our local art teachers has agreed to have her art class paint several pictures for the set as a project. We are also hoping to host an art exhibition by local artists in the foyer during the run of the play.
Another necessary prop is an attractive quilt, supposedly handmade by Miriam. Carol Minshall, who is a member of the Quilter’s Guild, has very kindly offered to make this for us and the finished product will probably then be raffled during the run.
Production dates are 15 to 23 March, which thankfully allows for a somewhat less pressurised rehearsal schedule than we had for the last show of 2012.
Bookings will open mid February and details will be in the next Prattle.
It looks like our plans to stage Hello and Goodbye this year have once again been thwarted. After being beaten to the post by another group for the rights last year, It appears the same company plan to tour the play and have signed a contract with DALRO which grants them exclusive rights for the whole of 2013. DALRO have written to the company concerned to ask if they might be prepared to give us permission to perform it as an amateur production in May but it doesn’t look hopeful. If we don’t receive a positive reply very soon, then disappointingly, both for the society and for Mari Mocke who was going to direct the play, we will have to take it off the calendar again for this year.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
I wrote the last Prattle in a bit of a rush and omitted to mention the results of the Intersociety Quiz. It was a fun evening as usual with delicious snacks provided by Fish Hoek, who hosted the event. There were some challenging questions and Milnerton’s two teams ended up fifth and sixth out of twelve on the point’s table. Congratulations to Constantiaberg who came first and went home with the Golden Duck Award.

MEMBERS’ MURMURS
We warmly welcome some more new members. CATA nominee, Fiona Tanner and co-star Brendon Spiro (From ‘A Christmas Carol…more or less’), Claire Conway, Mary McLeary and Janet Hannah.
Audrey Tipping, unfortunately, had a nasty fall in her home just before Christmas. (Were you into the eggnog a little early Audrey?) She is currently recuperating in a local frail care centre but hoping to be back home very soon. We wish her a full recovery and hope to see her back at the Playhouse before too long.
Many of you who have taken part in productions over the years will have had your photographs taken by Bob Shackleton. Bob was an amateur photographer but his publicity shots were the equal of many professionals. Bob sadly passed away very suddenly towards the end of last year while playing bowls, which was his main hobby. As a Western Province bowler and secretary of The Western Province Bowling Association, he will be sadly missed by the local bowling fraternity, while we have fond memories of his endless patience and good humour during countless photo shoots. We send our condolences to his wife and family.

For those of you who’ve already broken some of your New Year resolutions, I’ve included a list of easy to keep ones at the end of the Prattle. However, we would love all our members to make a resolution to get involved more often with events at the Playhouse and help us to make this a really good 2013 for Milnerton Players.
What better way to start than by coming along to our first social evening of the year on Friday 1st February so I look forward to seeing you there.
Bye for now

 

Sheila
For those of you who are sick of making resolutions that you never keep, here are a few you could try:
Gain weight – at least 15 kilos.
Stop exercising – waste of time.
Stop bringing lunch from home – I should eat out more
Get in a whole new rut.
Get further in debt.
Read less – makes you think more.
Procrastinate more – starting tomorrow.
Never believe politicians
Never make New Year resolutions

I am getting a very bad feeling that some (emailing) members may not have received the December newsletter which I sent out on the 29th – this contained the official notification of the AGM so it was fairly important ……..If you DIDN’T get it please drop me a line and I will re-send.
BIRTHDAYS
So this is now birthdays for the second half of January and the first half of February. We start with two on the 19th of January, being Andrew Blake and Wolfgang Thomas. Marc Jacquest is on the 21st and Ron Carr follows on the 29th with Jacqui Bloomer on the very last day. The birth flower for January is the Carnation (according to the Brits) and the Snowdrop (according to the Yanks). Interestingly enough the symbolization of both is love, fascination, and purity, although the carnation adds pride and beauty to the list. And since carnations are my all-time favourite flower I found a few more facts about it: it’s scientific name is Dianthus Caryophyllus; it is also called clove pink and gillyflower; the flower has been cultivated for the last 2,000 years and the name “carnation” is derived from the words “coronation” or the Greek word “corone” (meaning flower garlands).
Moving into February James Skilton starts us off on the very first day with Rudy Gibbons and Conrad Lihou the day after. Then comes Lynda Jennings on the 5th with Reneé Gowar on the 13th. The Brits say February’s flower is the violet (Viola Sororia) which has more than 400 species throughout different areas of the world, some of which are known as pansies. The name is derived from the word ‘Vias’ meaning ‘wayside’.

May 2013 be a year of health and happiness for each and every one of you!

18 – 26 Jan The Return of Elvis du Pisanie by Paul Slabolepszy, directed by Amanda Bothma and performed by Pieter-Schalk Bothma, is a real scoop for the Masque Theatre. This brilliant one-man play enjoyed record-breaking awards and international engagements and is a masterclass in marrying poignancy and comedy, promising to stir melancholy and awaken laughter.

AND …….. The list of Nominations is attached!!!!!!! Our society has 15 nominations and heaps of our members were nominated in plays for other societies!


ACTING TIPS!
The second in our series comes from Niamh Cusack, who has worked at the RSC, the National and the Old Vic, and whose TV and films include Heartbeat and Hereafter and who says “I wish I followed these rules all the time when I act. The truth is, you really learn these things by doing it: “Acting” means putting it all into action”:


1 Trust your playwright. If he or she is a great one, most of the work will have been done for you.
2 Read the play at least three times out loud before standing it on its feet. A lot of the blocking (the positioning of the actors on stage) will come out of understanding what your characters want, and from whom.
3 Listen to the person who’s talking – unless your character isn’t listening to them.
4 Don’t be afraid to make an eejit of yourself.
5 Change the look in the other person’s eye.
6 If it’s in verse, paraphrase it first.
7 Keep it simple.
8 Remember that most characters use words to affect, connect with or change the other person.
9 As [the actor] Ralph Richardson said, before you leave the dressing room, look in the mirror and ask yourself: “Is it human?”
10 It’s only a play!
Look out for more tips next month!!


TA MUCHLY!!!!!!!

To Lynn Moss who donated a bar fridge for the Rendezvous – Yay! Drinks at the AGM will be cold!. GREEN ROOM??
Why is the room where actors wait before going on stage called the “Green Room”?? Dozens of explanations have been offered but most are not very convincing. One suggestion is that it comes from Cockney rhyming slang: “Greengage” meaning “stage” but such slang dates only from the 19th century and the earliest reference to a “green room” in a theatre was in 1678. The most likely answer is that it began with one such room that WAS painted green. The Dorset Garden Theatre, The Drury Lane Theatre and the Blackfriars Theatre in London have all been suggested as
having the original “Green Room” but there is no hard evidence that the room was indeed painted green in any of those. Anyone got any other explanations??


ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Wednesday, 30 January 2013, at 19:30, at the Rendezvous.

Right: just time to jump in the pool before the braai begins!!


Don’t you love South African summers???

HHDS Newsletter January 2013

Dear Members and Friends,

Happy New Year to you all. We thank you for your support during the past year.

2012 was a very busy year for the Society and 2013 is fast filling up and we anticipate an even busier year in 2013. Congratulations to our members who have been nominated for CATA awards, and to the Carnivals of the Heart group for theirs.

I would also like to thank the Claremont Dramatic Society for bringing us their beautiful production of Calendar Girls. The money raised for the Sunflower fund by this production has been enough to save 20 lives. That, I think, is one of the best Xmas presents ever, and I am very proud our Society helped contribute to this effort.

Slice of Saturday Night opens on the 21ST January, and from the rehearsals I’ve seen and feed back received, promises to be a magnificent show. Thanks to Giles, the cast and crew for the tremendous effort they are putting into this production. They virtually worked right through the festive season to bring us a quality production. Word of mouth is our best marketing tool, so please spread the word, so we can make this show the financial success it deserves to be.

Much ado about nothing is in already in rehearsal, and this also promises to be an excellent production.

The Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Sunday 24th February, so please diarize this. The formal notifications etc will come out shortly. This is your chance to choose the people you would like to see running the Society, suggest changes & bring forward new ideas. The 2012 committee have worked very hard to keep the Society and theatre going and deserve our gratitude.

On a personal level, a big thank you to everyone from Celia & I for their tremendous support during her illness. Thankfully she is on the mend, and will soon be bouncing around again.

See you at the theatre,

Regards,
Lindsay S.
Chairman

“And now let us welcome in the New Year. Full of things that have never been”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Annual General Meeting.
The Annual General Meeting will be held at the Playhouse theatre on Sunday, 24th February at 19h30.
Please diarize.

Much Ado About Nothing
Shakespeare as we have never seen it before!

Darryl Spijkers has the gift of delighting the audience with the unusual and his next production Much Ado about Nothing is no different  This production of Much Ado about Nothing should attract both young and old, being set aboard the HMS Messina, a luxury cruise ship complete with tanning deck, disco, ball room and sports center scenes. The weather is sunny and the vibe is classy yet full of holiday spirit, cocktails, beer bottles, DJ’s mixing, naval officers and sexy girls in bikini’s, yet still remaining true to the timeless skills of Shakespeare’s original dialogue.

Slice of Saturday Night

Another entertaining show not to be missed. Directed by award winning director Giles Scott, music by Shiraz, Choreography by Amanda Peacefull.

In a musical filled with wonderful, evocative 1960’s music (played live, on stage by SHIRAZ), a group of teenagers remind us all what it was, and is, like to be young; “Do you remember, What it was like…?
Falling in love on a Saturday night… every Saturday night!”

Remember when everything you did was brand new?
Well, not to everyone else, but it was to you.
When your life was all extremes,
Up or down, but no in-betweens.
I ask you… who’d be seventeen?”

This is a show for everyone: well, everyone over the age of 14 that is, as innocent first love competes with raging hormones! Touching and really funny.

So, in the words of Eric, the owner of the night-club where this group of teenagers meet:
“We’d like to welcome you, one and all,
To one of life’s great finishing schools.
The breeding ground of the teenage dream.
A microcosm of the teenage scene.”

We are looking for actors for the following parts:

1) Count Dracula – tall, mysterious, distinguished
2) John Harker – young man, typical Englishman of public school class
3) Dr. Seward – intelligent, lives in world of books and patients, not man of action
4) Abraham Van Helsing – medium height, alert manner, air of resolution, incisive speech, always to point, resourceful action
5) Renfield – repulsive youth, distorted, bewildered attitude

The play will show at The Playhouse in Somerset West from 18-27 July 2013

Even though we are only looking for 8 actors, we welcome any crew/backstage help. The play is quite technical so backstage will be as exciting as on-stage and lots of hands needed.

Condolences to family and friends of Jim Hawker who died suddenly from all of us at The Playhouse

It is with great sadness that Jim Hawker passed away 30 November 2012.

It is a very sad occasion but Jim had recently celebrated his 90th birthday and his 68th wedding anniversary, so the sadness is for the end of a long and loving life.
A Memorial Occasion, was held for those that were able to share their memories and say their farewells, in The Playhouse Green Room on Sunday, 02 December 2012.

A big thank you to Lindsay and Sue & Ramsey Lotter for making the Theatre and the Bar available at short notice.
