PARDON ME PRIME MINISTER by Edward Taylor and John Graham.
OCTOBER 28 – 31
This is a traditional farce, quick-fire action, mistaken identities and chaos at No 10 Downing Street on the eve of a puritanical budget.
Rehearsals are in full swing for our next production:
Michael Collins directing is pleased with the progress so far and its a highly enjoyable comedy to rehearse. As the lines are already flowing and props and stage design are progressing well, this promises to be another of Belmont's entertaining and high quality performances.
Belmont Theatre wins Top Award!
On Saturday 13th June 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!!!

Below is a 'thank-you' note to Linda and Mel from Andrea, whom you can see playing Caesar above.
We had a nice note of thanks from our Patron, Heather Bickerton, after she came to see our show 'Remembrance' at the Pump House and with her permission we publish it here:
"Just a brief line to thank you and the other talented folks who gave us such an inspirational evening on Friday (28.2.15.) After the pleas in the magazine to come and experience something different etc, I feared it might be "above my head" and possibly depressing. How wrong. The four of us came and found it absorbing with profound messages interspersed with delightful humour. We were totally absorbed, entertained and impressed. Well done with the Irish-speak, so well maintained. Do hope you do well in the Barnet Drama Festival - you must do with a performance like that! Mary, you and Bernard created such a genuine and romantic partnership which I related to - it certainly is possible. Keep entertaining us like this - our gang would not miss any of your shows. Much love Heather.''

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, stagehand, 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.
