A Letter From The President
The universal logo for theatre is two faces or masks. One smiling, depicting comedy and the second frowning, depicting tragedy. It is my unfortunate task to inform all that, this year, Southern Peninsula Players has had but one mask hung above its door. That of tragedy.
For reasons too countless to mention, SPP has had to pull each of its shows for 2013, the most recent being its December production of “Albert Nobbs”. For a theatre company that has spanned some 60 years, this year has been one that will not soon be forgotten. It is however, just one year. The company has fought for too long and fought too hard to let one year bring it to an end.
We have time and the clarity of hindsight to now recognise what has been done right (and what has been done wrong) to drive us into the future. We have fresh new faces coming on board to direct shows in the coming years which will bring new talent to grace the stage in our forthcoming productions. We have, we feel, a bright future ahead of us and simply ask that those, who have been with us all these years, will stick with us and come with us on our journey of re-discovery.
