On July 12th, there will be a reading of ‘THE GHOST TRAIN’, held at Ty Price Community Hall, starting 7.00pm.

A group of six train passengers find themselves stranded at a small Cornish wayside station, where they have little option but to stay the night in the waiting room and catch a morning train to continue their journey.  But the night holds many secrets and surprises for the group.

Widely felt to be one of the scariest ghost stories ever staged, yet at the same time something of a gentle comedy, it was written in 1923 by Arnold Ridley, the actor who played genial Private Godfrey in Dad's Army.

Plenty of support will be required for this technically challenging play which is our intended production for November and will be directed by Judith Rossiter. Auditions will be held in September.


Our next production will be the ‘THE CRUCIBLE’ by Arthur Miller, now recognized as an iconic literary masterpiece of modern American theatre.

Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, Miller dramatizes the Salem witch trials that took place in the late 17th century. The play was written during the height of the Cold War and is often considered an allegory for the political repression and reckless accusations of McCarthyism that gripped the United States in the 1950’s.

Auditions have been held, the cast of 20 have been selected and will start rehearsals shortly. We are very pleased to have some new members involved and taking part in this production which will be performed over three nights in September.

The production will be jointly directed by Geoff Manning and Jim Newcomb.
