Players hatch a crazy plot

By Ashleigh Fielding | posted on October 5, 2019

PEOPLE buying tickets to the upcoming Plantagenet Players show, consider this your official warning – you may need to purchase extra-large incontinence pants because you’re going to wet yourself silly from laughter.

This direct from co-producer Helen Jeffery who with Charmaine Gadenne, has written the comedy variety show Hatches, Matches, Dispatches (and other life snatches!).

Yes, the show will be as wild and as crazy as it sounds – the usual fashion for the hilarious amateur theatre group.

“There’s a bit of dance, song parody, skits … it’s a bit risqué in some parts,” Gadenne revealed.

“There’s a lot of tongue-in-cheek humour, which we both have, that comes out in the show.”

Gadenne said one theatre member’s one-act play will debut at the performance as well.

The cast of 16 will feature new and familiar faces to the Plantagenet District Hall stage and Gadenne encouraged everyone to grab a ticket to experience their talent.

One member of the group agreed that just being at rehearsals made her go home feeling warm inside, and she always left laughing.

Hatches, Matches, Dispatches (and other life snatches!) will play at Plantagenet District Hall on November 1, 2, 8 and 9 at 8pm.

Adults are $20, seniors are $15, and a light supper will be provided.

It’s BYO alcohol and viewers are advised of some adult themes.

You can purchase tickets from Bub 2 Mum on Lowood Road or by calling 0447 656 105.

Part proceeds from opening night will be donated to the West Plantagenet Pony Club.
