THE Actors Community Theatre (ACTS) group began rehearsals for their next production, Ladies Day, two years ago.
Nobody could have imagined what was about to happen to the world in early 2020 when the group was just three weeks away from opening at the Cardenal Belluga Theatre in San Fulgencio.
The axe came down and a strict lockdown was introduced to combat the Covid 19 pandemic and, like similar organisations, ACTS members were prevented from meeting and rehearsals came to a halt.
Even when restrictions were ease, only limited get-togethers for glorified read-throughs were possible with cast members observing distancing rules and sitting at separate tables.
Now, after many trials and tribulations, the ACTS theatre group proudly presents Ladies Day, the story of four women who want to relieve their boredom as packers in a fish processing plant.
They decide to attend Ladies Day at York, where the event was held during the 2004 refurbishment of Ascot racecourse. The day turns out to be more than they expect and has a dramatic effect on each of their lives.
The production runs from Thursday October 28 to Saturday October 30 at the Cardenal Belluga Theatre, San Fulgencio with curtain-up at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at €10 and can be ordered by emailing [email protected] or phoning, messaging or sending a WhatsApp to 602 683 925.
Profits will be donated to local charities.
