Wilstead Players’ Newsletter


‘WAR IS OVER’, our production commemorating and celebrating the centenary of the ending of the First World War, is all set for Friday and Saturday, 2nd and 3rd November, at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.

There will be a variety of items in the show including familiar songs, sketches, monologues, and a melodrama.  And, a supper of fish and chips will be served in the interval.  Members of The Royal British Legion will be in attendance and poppies, (if you haven't already obtained one), will be available. You are also invited to dress suitably for the period if you wish and anyone with medals, please wear them.


We hope this will be a wonderful and unforgettable Village occasion.


Tickets, including the supper, will cost £13.50.  The Box Office will open on Wednesday, 10th October, with priority booking for our Patrons from Monday, 8th October.  Seating will be at tables for 8 people and our usual bar will be running throughout.


Our friends at Stewartby, the Stewartby Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society, will be presenting ‘Ruddigore’ in Stewartby Village Hall, Stewartby Way, Stewartby MK43 9LX from Tuesday, the 20th to Saturday, the 24th November at 7.30 pm.  ‘Ruddigore’ is not a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta produced very often so, if you would like to be treated to a few Gilbertian plot twists, directorial liberties and beautiful music, then visit the website – saods.org.uk – or telephone 07557 670703 for tickets.  They will cost £10.00 on the first night, Tuesday, 20th and £12.00 from Wednesday to Saturday, 21st to the 24th.


Looking ahead, there are plans for a production of "The Railway Children " on 1st and 2nd March next year. If you would like to be involved with this, please contact us either through the website or by telephone.
