If you have any pages that would be suitable to link to this page i might consider some link swapping.
July 2002: A sucessful variety show. The audience delighted at the ecologically-friendly (i.e. recycled) jokes of the compares, Mick and Dave. They laughed at the animals in the box and there could have been hardly a dry eye in the house for Graham Jackson and Jenny Moore's rendition of Pie Jesu, Or for that matter Paul Carne's excrciating singing.
May 2002: Meppershall Players 30th Anniversary: This year the Meppershall Players celebrate 30 years since its creation in 1972. To honour this momentous occasion the first Players play "Spring and Portwine" was staged once more. Although not a record crowd for the two nights it is the general concensus of those asked that Spring and Portwine 2002 was very good indeed. General comments were made on the slug on the upperlip of Paul "Ubergruppenfuhrer" Carne, The passion shown by Graham Jackson and the mature acting style shown by the two younger members of the cast, Mark Vernon and Emily Partington. Not to mention the fabulous debut of Ben Griffith.
Patricia Bass has excelled herself in the direction of this play and the cast have worked very hard indeed to put on a show at a very professional level. Lets hope in 2032 the Players are still going strong and the cobwebs can be dusted off of the copies of Spring and Portwine again. If you have any pictures from the past 30 years that you would not mind being posted on here please pass them to Mark Vernon or another member of the players.
