What an unusual start to 2020 we have all had! In amongst it all Queanbeyan Players are still here!
We had a very successful AGM in early March and would like to introduce our new committee:
President Alison Newhouse
Vice President Christina Philipp
Treasurer Benjamin Martin
Secretary Janette Humphrey
Congratulations to all!
In 55 years this is the first time QP have had to postpone a show. The Sound of Music Commenced rehearsals in early February. With an amazing cast and dedicated production team we accomplished a great deal in six weeks of rehearsals, so much so we had had a run of Act 1. This was before everything came to a screeching halt with COVID-19.
We had stopped rehearsals 2 weeks prior to the official Social Distancing measures came into play. We made this decision for the health and safety of our cast and production team.
Then we got notice from the Queanbeyan Palerang Council that The Q was postponing all future shows for at least 6 months. All going well our new dates for Sound of Music is in October.
The whole cast were naturally disappointed but are all enthusiastically waiting to return to rehearsals and we are all looking forward to bringing Sound of Music to The Q stage.
Keep safe and healthy and we will be back soon!
