CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

"I thoroughly enjoyed it on Thursday, well done everyone!" - Stephen

Derek Webb, author of "Agatha Crusty and the Health Spa Murders" travelled all the way from Pembrokeshire to watch the opening night of his hilarious play.

Founder member ,Linda Smith played the Crime novelist Agatha Crusty (pronounced ‘croosty’) on her relaxing trip to a health spa.  She books into the Spa owned by Andy Eden, Andy Johnson, There she meets the other participants of the health spa weekend: members of the Zara Fernandez fashion house sales team (Sally Sisson, Heather Craddock, Amy Tyrrell, Liz Haigh, Maureen Quittenton}  She also meets two members of the Seventh Heaven team: Abigail, {Kaye Leadbetter} the therapist and Dmitri Popov (Rob Marvin), a Russian therapist specialising in Venik massage. Each persons story unfolds with hilarious effect as they each eperience the spa treatments, especially when Dimitris little birch twig comes into full effect.

Things go well  until one of the group is found drowned, presumed murdered, in the Moor Mud Bath. 

Enter Detective Inspector Simon Aster (Les Lawrence) – a DI , whos more clueless than Clouseeau.

When other murders follow, Agatha decides to take matters into her own hands, investigating among other things the significance of the apple tree in the health spa’s ‘Garden of Eden’. the play was well recieved by the audiences.

It was an honour to have Derek as a guest, who happily stayed behind after the performance to chat to the cast and have photos. Derek is a professional playwright, screenwriter, poet and author.

It's a golden Treasure Island panto!

A review by Tony Parratt for the Hinckley Times.

WhatsApp Image 2023-12-03 at 21.58.05_6a2f62f7.jpg

A treasure trove of talented youngsters ensured that the latest Trinity Players pantomime was yet another rip-roaring success.

This was a truly age defying night. Where many of the leading parts were taken by performers young in years but showing a stage maturity way beyond them.

And this seemed to spur on some of the senior 'Players' to up their game too, as they performed a golden 'Treasure Island'.

Kayleigh Long as Jim Hawkins and Lucie Sharman-Wells as Jenny Trelawney were at the top of their game, as they led the hunt for the map and buried treasure located on a faraway island.

While Wayne Roberts as blowsy Mum Hawkins had the audience constantly chuckling and eating out of his hand, with sly innuendos and saucy glances.

An authoritive Squire Trelawney came to life in the form of Sally Whiston, while Linda Smith was a menacing Long John Silver and certainly earned her share of boos.

Every traditional panto must have a funny twosome and the pairing of Matthew Smith as Seadog Sam and Amy Tyrrell as Seaweed Willy was pure comedy gold.

Adding to the convincing performances were first rate sound, lighting and scenery, ensuring we were continually swept along with the action.

Many of the supporting roles were taken admirably by junior members displaying fine acting, dancing and singing skills, while old stager Peter Bradley managed a fine cameo role as Ben Gunn, ensuring he shared the stage with two of his grandchildren.

Truly a show for the family both on and off stage.
