Hello, Is There Any Body There? by Ian Hornby
Directed by Julie Petrucci

A murder mystery farce set in Squire Grange where all is dull and peaceful ...

Lady Amelia (Wendy Croft) searches for new ideas for her latest mystery novel as Sir Malcolm (Paul Lockwood) sleeps off the excesses of another idle day. Family friend Freddy (Gareth Atkinson) is persuaded to try and think of new ideas.

Meanwhile the hapless Vic Tim (Sam Smethurst) arrives and is promptly dispatched by an unknown assailant. Everyone tries hard to discover the murderer before he or she can strike again. The first problem, however, is how to get rid of Vic's body, not just because he is making an untidy mess on the stage, but also because he has to come back in ACT II as a policeman!

Smalls (Nick Gulvin), the butler, and Mabel (Caroline Blair), the maid, try to assist the inept police led by DI Sides (Rosie Wilson), and Sir Malcolm attempts to give the delicious WPC Eve Nunnall (Maeve Adair) a hand, but it's not in time to prevent the Producer being murdered. There is even a suspicion that someone may have poisoned the audience. Eventually Miss Marbles (Tina Seeley) arrives to reveal, Agatha Christie-style, the culprit.

This is a murder mystery - but not as we know it - which steadfastly refuses to take itself (or anything else) seriously.

Snails for Starters by Kattreya Smith
Directed by Mark Easterfield

Meet Robert and Juliet (no, not quite Romeo), a stereotypical middle-class couple, married for 35 years, and as iPads become the new newspapers their relationship trundles along. Enter Carl and his new young thing, Imogen, and everything comes into question: 'are you still attracted to me?' 'do you know what career Antonio Banderas originally wanted?' 'Who's Lola'? All will be answered in Kattreya Scheurer-Smith's latest comedy Snails For Starters. Please note: No snails will be harmed in this production.

Open auditions will be held on Thursday 31st May in the School Hall from 7:30pm. Parts comprise:

Robert (M) Playing age 50's A kind-natured vet with good intentions but limited backbone.
Juliet (F) Playing age 50's A witty, sharp and laid back career woman, married to Robert for 35 years.
Carl (M) Playing age 50's An old friend of Robert's, a geezer with the ability to talk the talk.
Imogen (F) Playing age 25-40 Carl's new girlfriend, exceptionally dim, a golddigger but relatively sweet despite her intentions.
Lola (F) Playing age 18-30 Carl's daughter, who unexpectedly returns from afar after blowing her inheritance on a cult.
