Market Weighton Community Players has an active managing committee made up of local people who have an interest in the ongoing success of the society. These volunteers meet regularly to review recent activities and plan future events and productions.
This year has seen the MWCP perform Mother Goose and The Vicar of Dibley, as well as taking part in A Giant’s Tale written by our very own Val Brogden for Giant Community Day in July. Currently, the MWCP are preparing for an Evening of Comedy with a Fish and Chip Supper. “Between Mouthfuls” and “Last Panto in Little Grimley” will be performed on 26th, 27th & 28th October 2017.
Market Weighton Community Players would like to perform more stage plays and work is ongoing to locate suitable work(s) that would be within our scope of expertise and which would appeal to local audiences. Also of consideration are the availability and cost of local venues both in Market Weighton and the surrounding district. We are also interested in performing productions at other suitable venues especially in the East Riding area. The Contact Form can be used if you have any suggestions.
We are a friendly group and welcome new members of all ages and all abilities. You can register your interest via the “Contact Us” form. A register is held of people interested in taking part in various roles whether on stage, back or front of house or just as a supporter and friend.
The MWCP organise a number of social events each year which include visits to local theatres in Hull and York and further a field.
When a new production is planned, normal practice is to contact everyone on our mailing list and to post notices around the town and villages and in the press with an invitation to an open meeting At this meeting further details are made known and an invitation made for people to register their interest in becoming involved in whichever capacity they choose. The producer may then hold a part reading session for those interested in performing on stage and from which parts can be cast.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
