Not even a Royal Wedding stops plans for Newquay Dramatic Society's first Summer play. Carolyn Oakley called in to take photographs at the rehearsal on the evening of the 29th of May. There was lots of chat about the day and how lovely the Bride looked and how much everyone had enjoyed watching the events of the day unfold. Then it was down to the business in hand. The photographs needed to be taken and a rehearsal to start. All the usual things that go into making sure that Lane Theatre is ready for their big day, the opening of the 'Summer Season'.
Leane Theatre's cast
As the Theatre continues to celebrate its 80th Birthday year, the comedy by Ivan Menchall kicks off the Summer Season in style.

"The Cemetery Club" Synopsis
Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands' graves: Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life. Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun and Doris is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. What follows is very touching and humorous. An evening of pure pleasure that will make you glad you went to the theatre.
Advanced booking are always welcome, call 01637 872862 or ring the Box Office (in operation after 25th May): 01637876945.
