Typical comment from opening night audience member:
"Great play, well performed. An enjoyable evening as always!" Mary, Harrow.
Night Must Fall, opens on May 25th 2016 for a run of five performances. Wednesday to Saturday @ 7.45pm plus Saturday matinee @ 2.45pm
Approximate duration 2 hours 20 minutes, including an interval.
Set in the mid-1930s, in her bungalow on the edge of a forest in Essex, a crotchety old widow has become bitter due to loneliness and ill health. Together with her unmarried niece as companion/carer, the household includes a spirited housekeeper and a meek, somewhat clumsy maid, Dora. The normal routine is broken by the appearance of Dora's 'boyfriend', Danny - who instantly weighs up the dynamics in the household and soon manoeuvres himself into the affections of both the old lady and her niece. Dora reveals she is pregnant and the police report the disappearance of a woman who was a guest at a local hotel where Danny had been working. A body is then found - the first of many connections. Danny is taken on by the old lady as a further carer but it soon becomes obvious to all except the old dear that he cares more about her wealth than her health and that 'evil' has come to Forest Corner.
As our performances often sell out, please book early.

Below are rehearsal shots from Belmont's last show, 'Sitting Pretty' - by Amy Rosenthal. This dramatic comedy played to more than 600 people in it's February 2016 run at the Pump House Theatre, Watford.
Belmont scored yet another success with 'Pardon Me, Prime Minister' in October 2015.
In October 2015, the group was delighted to play to a run of full houses for this traditional, well-crafted farce. The audiences showed they loved it and all the dedicated hard work really paid off; a real collective effort with a hard-working cast and backstage team. The whole show was a great team effort from Front of House, Set Building, Working Parties, Props, Stage Managers, Prompt, Lighting and Sound, plus the vital work of Box Office and Publicity. Belmont at it's very best. The publicity for this play obviously worked well and the eye- catching programme and poster designed by Mike and Maggie Morrow certainly was one of our best. Who could resist that red bra!!!?
Belmont Theatre is always looking to welcome new members and patrons. We have a terrific programme of plays in the pipeline and plenty for you to get involved in.

Belmont Theatre wins Top Award!
On Saturday 13th June 2015 a crowd of us went to the Barnet Festival Awards evening. We were awarded a trophy for The Most Ambitious Choice of Play for 'Remembrance'. It was with great pride that I collected the trophy. This was for two reasons, one it was a damn good play and secondly because as I had spent most of the rehearsal period in either plaster or an air boot, it was very satisfying to actually be able to go onto the stage to collect it!!!
Mary Woolf was nominated for 'Best Actress', Judi Campion for 'Best Actress in a Supporting Role' and the set for 'Best Design and Construction'.
Thanks again to everyone involved. Please see the photos and the very very wide smiles!!!

What can joining Belmont Theatre really do for me?
The proverbial 'first step' is notoriously the toughest to take when making a change so if you have ever considered taking a stab at the acting world, wait no longer and head in the direction of your performing dreams.
Why? The answer is simple, but powerful. Becoming a thespian, director, stage-hand, costumer, prop master, stage manager as well as promoting the show and ensuring the performances run smoothly in an amateur theatre group has far more intrinsic benefits than many people realise. And who knows where joining amateur theatre society might take you! Famous faces who first started in amateur theatre include Helen Mirren and Daniel Craig.
