Alsager Community Choir

Alsager Community Choir

Join the Alsager Community Choir in their first concert under new Conductor Daniel Keen to raise money for Shine. The choir will also be joined by special guest singer Lucy Cross.
The programme will feature a wide variety of music making this concert suitable for all ages.
 
The Alsager Community Choir was formed in May 2012 and was created to allow people of all singing abilities to get together, make new friends and sing their favourite songs in 4 part harmony. Music Director Matthew Thomason initially came up with the idea whilst he was teaching in China, where he had to use the choir singing as a way to relax students who were under enormous pressure at school. The benefits of singing for your body and mind are great but also being part of a choir is a fantastic way of winding down, meeting new people and sharing new experiences.

The choir now boasts around 60 members and performed it's first concert on December 2012 and has since gone on to perform concerts for the Alzheimer's Society, Alsager Rotary Club, Shine Learning Disability Programme and the Alsager Music & Arts Society.
 
In 2015 The Alsager Community Choir was asked to perform with the Brit award-winning harmony trio Blake at the Crewe Lyceum and the Buxton Arts Centre, with both shows being a huge success. The choir has since gone on to perform with Blake again in 2016 and 2017. During 2016-2017 the choir was under the excellent tutelage of Kate Cubley an experienced choir leader and vocal coach.
 
Following Kates departure we are delighted to welcome Daniel Keen as our interim Choral Leader. Daniel has a wealth of experience as Music Director for Biddulph Male Voice Choir and the Bunbury Singers. Dan will be working closely with Music Director Matthew on the choirs future repertoire.
 
Tickets are available online here.  Online bookers please be aware that this is a different on-line system to our normal one, and that the stage is at the TOP of the seating plan, not the bottom.

One Act Playwriting Festival

One Act Playwriting Festival

Presented by Congleton Players Amateur Theatre Club

A Festival of One-Act Plays

One-Act Plays Co-Ordinator – David McCaddon
Assisted by David Burt

Festival Background

Held every two years the Players first ever Playwriting Competition was launched in September 1998 and its founder and organiser (and now Chairman) Annabelle Hull was thrilled to receive nine entries!

The second competition in 2000 produced some 21 entries and from then on the number of entries increased as has the standard of play. With the launch in 2012 of the Player’s website (www.congletonplayers.com) some 121 plays were received for the competition.

Altogether the Players have now showcased some forty-eight plays – all written especially for The Players since 1998. This means of course that the writers have had the privilege and joy of seeing their words and ideas come to life on stage.

This year will be no exception with a record total of some 440 entries received!

The audience on the night will each cast their vote for the winning  play with a prize of £150 to the successful author!
