THE Marine Players have made a £5,000 contribution to the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis following their successful production of ‘The Vicar of Dibley’.
Formerly the Lyme Regis Dramatic Society, the Marine Players were formed at the beginning of 2016 in order to move to a closer relationship with the theatre, and attract a younger and more wide-ranging membership.
Its regular productions raise funds for the upkeep of the historic theatre building, with its recent stage adaptation of the favourite TV sitcom deemed a resounding success.
David Ruffle of the Marine Players commented: “Artistically it was a joy to be involved in, playing to packed audiences who loved every second. Financially, it possibly exceeded expectations.”
The group’s next production, which is currently in the discussion stages, will be held in December and both the theatre and players are hoping for a similar success.
Full details of the production and audition dates are expected to be announced soon. All are welcome to join, experience not necessary, just bring your enthusiasm.
