Happy New Year to all members! On a cold January evening a full house of members – current and new – plus several guests, arrived for a special evening of entertainment, with a most professional group of actors named – Highly Suspect – travelling from Carlisle. We were advised that we would need our pool of memory resources to discover the guilty party.
All members were totally involved as the players developed the theme and story of the plot offering intriguing clues. During this the members in groups created individual titles plus a limerick – most humorous at times – In fact it could be said – ‘somewhat risque’!
Then work sheets were given – hoping to discover the result. Throughout all of this, the actors ‘ played the room’ addressing each table as they did so- always in character and voice and dress. Each table was invited to suggest the guilty party and they did. The evening was a huge success – most appropriate for the first meeting of the New Year- and discovering that Highly Suspect has a varied list of performances – no doubt they will be returning in the future!!!
The meeting was full of news from the committee and the cakes were – scrumptious as always. New sub groups are now developing the most recent being the Theatre Club organised by Leila – all interested members keep in touch. The Willows WI Musicians is afoot organised by Julie, again if interested keep in touch.
Here’s to our next meeting in February- Best Wishes to all
