Well This was a busy month, with rehearsals almost every night in the week preceding the play, followed by a two week run of performances with a total of 13 performances including a matinee and evening performance on final day. And to follow that - well a brief rest, but now in the cast of Cranford at Christmas at TOADS little Theatre.

I would like to thank Carly from the Energy Comparison Company Selectra for advising me that the WWF link I was using was incorrect, I have now corrected it.
Before moving to Devon, Glynis was involved in a large number of Duston Players productions in Northampton.
Early in 2005 she was in the thriller "The price to pay" in which she played the part of Carol, seen herebeing threatened by a kidnapper.
In November 2005 Glynis appeared in Blackadder " taking two parts:
Some of the other parts played
by Glynis include:-
the American widow, 'Mildred' in 'The Cemetary Club, 'Helga in 'Allo Allo'
Mrs Smith in 'Run for your Wife', 'A Baddie' in a pantomime, A Spirit in 'Ladies of Spirit'
In April 2007 Glynis was the Policewoman in Blood Money where she was heard at the door but never came onstage. Glynis was also Stage manager for this production.
In November 2007 Glynis was also heard but not seen as she did not audition for a part in Country Wife. We were hoping to sell our house and move to Devon, but were still here when she agreed to be the Prompter, and was kept busy as the cast found the script of this restoration comedy to be quite a challenge.
Finally, in March 2008, Glynis had the part of a 'batty' medium in her last production with Duston Players, a comedy entitled "Late of This address", after which we moved to Devon - Who says type-casting does not happen!
