Final Call for English Theatre

Actress and Director Credit: Indalo Players

If it takes a village to raise a child, then it takes an army of willing thespians to create, direct, stage and perform a first class production for their Community Theatre.

Community Theatre

Hours, weeks and months of rehearsals, set building, costumes, props, venue sourcing and organising publicity takes place to this end and every member is a volunteer giving freely of their time, effort and skills, with the sole aim of entertaining you with a first rate production whilst raising funds for charity.

Janet Franklin who has lived in Bedar for 31 years is a sprightly and extremely active 80 year old who wanted to be a professional actress.

However, love, marriage and a family came along so she has spent decades being involved with amateur dramatics.

As a Director, her diligent conscientiousness, earnest application plus laser-like precision is tireless and meticulous. “This is a world premiere and I am thrilled and delighted to have an amazing cast” explained Janet “and I think I have found Almeria’s answer to Pauline Collins who starred in the film”.

The story of Mrs Caldicot’s Cabbage War deals with quite a poignant ageing scenario but it allows you to sit back, relax, be entertained and laugh!

Where to see it

The play will be presented at the Teatro Municipal Bedar on March 8 and 9, Teatro Museo Arboleas on March 15 and 16 and El Espacio Cultural Los Gallardos on March 22 and 23 by the Indalo Players.

Tickets cost €10 at each venue and to make your booking call 629 252 292 or 670 722 705.
