We are proud to announce our next play, Agatha Christie’s The Hollow will be perfomed at The Little Theatre, Grange Road West, Birkenhead, on the 16th-18th of February 2023.  Doors open at 7.00pm. 

Here is the story…

As some of you probably know there are changes afoot with venues for the Woolies plays. 

A major problem with Pensby School recently came up when we found out that there was almost definitely going to be no heating in the hall for our October performance “The Hollow”.  As you will appreciate, we couldn’t expect our audiences to sit in a cold hall!  It wasn’t that warm last October with the heating on!

A quick decision had to be made, because of time restrictions, that the best thing to do was postpone the play to early in the New Year.  This meant that over the last couple of weeks a huge amount of work has been going on, mainly by Ann and Jenny, to find an alternative.  They have visited many possible venues (too numerous to mention!) in Heswall and across the Wirral and the only place that could accommodate us with a full week at any time was the Little Theatre in Birkenhead.  They have been so helpful and gone out of their way to accommodate us that a decision was made at an Emergency Committee Meeting to go ahead and book a week in February 2023 with performances taking place 16th – 18th.  We will also pencil in a June date shortly at the Little Theatre, with a decision confirmed when we see which dates will be available.  

We sincerely hope that you will all understand the reason this decision has been made and that you will come to the Little Theatre to support Jenny’s cast and crew who have already put a huge effort into the production of The Hollow.  It is a lovely little theatre, more comfortable seats!  We can still do our teas and coffees and there is also a bar.  They have even given us access to their set equipment, props, furniture and wardrobe which will be so useful.

All in all, we think it is the right decision at this time and we hope you agree. There is a large car park close by and the Theatre would block a few spaces on the road directly outside for disabled parking. 

We do look forward to welcoming you to this popular play!
