Last Tango & Last Panto in Little Grimley

Little GrimleyLittle Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society is in trouble. The membership has dwindled to four and the audience isn't much bigger. If they don't come up with some rent money soon, they're going to be thrown out of the village hall...

Gordon, the chairman argues that there is only one thing that sells tickets these days SEX. Thus begins the chaotic and hilarious build-up to an evening of extraordinary home grown drama... an evening the locals would never forget!!!

From the people who brought you 'Allo 'Allo, we're once again treading the boards this summer with two hilarious one-act plays from "Little Grimley".  Although the characters remain the same the cast changes at the interval for the second play. 

This promises to be a great night out (adults only, 18+ please) - There'll be nibbles provided, and table seating, so bring your own bottle, sit back and relax and enjoy this great evening of comedy we've got lined up for you.

The show is on for two nights only, 13th and 14th June, so be quick and get your tickets ASAP.  Tickets are £15 and are available from Culter Village Hall on 01224 734371

Auditions: Little Grimley

Well we're auditioning again for our summer show, and as you may have heard, there's been a little bit of a change of plan to what we'd originally intended.  However we're sure that we've got a great show lined up, in the form of two back to back one act plays from "Little Grimley".

So WE NEED YOU - calling all our theatre club members - and anyone wishing to have a go for the first time, we're auditioning for parts for this summer show.  This is a great opportunity for our cast, both old and new.

Come along to the auditions on Tuesday 18th March or Wednesday 19th March at 7.30pm at the Village Hall.  No audition no part we're afraid!

Thus begins the chaotic and hilarious build-up to an evening of extraordinary home grown drama.... an evening the locals would never forget!!!

"Last Panto" is the first sequel to "Last Tango" and sees the four club members - Gordon, Margaret, Joyce and Bernard - tackle the xmas panto with predictably hilarious results. Gordon is again 'in control' and produces an adult script for Puss in Boots to attract the audience. Unfortunately he hasn't reckoned on a faulty word processor, less than state of the art lighting or Bernard's banana habit to prevent things going as smoothly as he would like.

Auditions: Are You Free?


Hi All - although we know a lot of you were getting excited about Are You Being Served (as were we), unfortunately we're having to put that on the back burner for now. We simply haven't been able to get enough cast together - and it's a surprisingly large cast required for it.


Well we're now looking to get together a cast and crew for "Are You Being Served?", so we need performers who might be interested to come forward to be part of what promises to be a great laugh (and not just for the audience)!

So whether you're a long term club member, an old hand at amateur dramatics and theatre, or are just starting out and considering being part of something a little bit different, then we need you!

We have a read-through (where we get together as a group and go over the script), and also open auditions over the next two weeks, and we'd love you to come along to find out more, and to audition for parts.

  • READ-THROUGH:  Thursday 20th February
  • OPEN AUDITIONS:  Tuesday 25th February
    OPEN AUDITIONS:  Tuesday 4th March    <<<< EXTRA AUDTIONS

Both are at 7.30pm in the Peterculter Village Hall.  If you intend auditioning, we'd recommend that you try to come along to the read-through first (although it's not mandatory), as that way you'll find out about the script.

PLEASE NOTE: The show will be for adults only, so you must be over 18 to take part in the read-through and auditions.

If you intend coming along to one or both please let us know using the contact form - just so we know how many to expect!

Are You Being Served…?

Are You Being Served

Well after the great success we had with 'Allo 'Allo again last year, the Culter Theatre Club Annual General Meeting has given the go ahead for the club to look at another classic sitcom from the 70's and 80's, "Are You Being Served?".  At the moment we're aiming to be able to put on a show in the first week of June this year.

Many of you will remember the lovable characters, including Mrs Slocombe with her wide variety of hair colours, the strict Captain Peacock, and of course, Mr Humphries with his catchphrase "I'm Free"!  Filled with laughs and the inevitable innuendo, it promises to be another great evening's entertainment.

The first committee meeting to start plans for the show takes place next week, and there'll be announcements for auditions soon after.  So whether you feel like treading the boards as one of the characters, or just want to come along and enjoy the show, watch this space for news as it happens!

Culter Theatre Club Needs You!

Well it seems that summer is well and truly here at the moment – I hope you’re able to make the most of it and enjoy some of our rare summer weather!  At the last committee meeting we were looking at a couple of things we’d like to do this autumn.  Some of you may know that unfortunately we weren’t able to get the grant for our sound and lighting, so we’re going to have to fund it ourselves – not to worry though, as we’ve got a couple of ideas for things – but we need your help…

Heritage Hall Teas
7th and 8th September

We’re looking for volunteers to:

a)    Provide us with home baking; and
b)    Help serve at the heritage hall on the Saturday and/or Sunday between 2-4pm

If you think you can help with either – or both of these then reply to this email.
As it’s the theatre club we also thought we might be able to put on the occasional bit of cabaret while the teas are on – if you have an act, dramatic reading, song or anything you’d like to do on the day, again let us know by reply!

Evening Cabaret
Either 29th September or 5th October

We’d like to see if we can put on an evening cabaret so again we’re looking for:

a)    Acts, songs, readings – anything cabaret!
b)    A volunteer/s to be the contact person to help co-ordinate the acts.

We’ll be doing this in conjunction with the hall committee so they’ll be able to look after all the food and drink, tickets and everything else to do with the show – all the Theatre Club needs to do is organise the acts!  We’ll then be able to share the proceeds – part going to raise funds to redecorate the hall, and part to the Theatre Club funds for our sound/lighting project.  If you can make one of the dates but not the other, please let us know.


Let us know which one you’ll be able to help out on! 
We look forward to hearing from you - use our contact us form!

Café René is now Closed.

Café René is ClosedWell it has come to the end, and unfortunately Café René is now closed.  We had a wonderful time serving all you lovely ladies and gentlemen, and we hope you found the ambience of Café René to your liking, and weren't disturbed too much by "ze goings on".

We would like to sincerely thank every one of you who came along to see the show, supported the club and hopefully thoroughly enjoyed themselves!! A special well done and thank you also goes out to everyone involved in putting on the show: our fabulous production team, backstage and technical crew, the front of house team, and of course the cast!

See you at panto time... watch this space!

Café René is almost ready to open its doors

WineWell folks, it's almost time for the doors of Café René to open once again.  Yvette, Mimi, Madame Edith, and indeed René himself (with one or two others... ;-) have been dusting off the glasses, ironing the tablecloths and sweeping the floors in preparation for your visit next week. 

We hope you're looking forward to coming along to enjoy the ambience of our little bistro.  Of course zer is a war on, so you might notice one or two "goings on" while you're enjoying your glass of wine and nibbles - Café René can get very busy, and you're sure to see quite a few characters going about their business.  We're confident however that it will all add to the je ne sais quoi of your evening.

So - don't forget to bring along something to drink - you may need a bottle or two, and we would of course welcome anyone who wishes to "dress appropriately" - this is the 1940s you know!
