Station Theatre Open Day

Open 10am till 6pm with events 2pm to 4pm, Free Entry

On Saturday 4th August HIADS (that’s Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society) will be holding an open day at its home in the Station Theatre, West Town. You can find out how the theatre was converted from the railway goods shed at the end of the Billy Line in 1996 and have a tour of the theatre and its backstage facilities.

As well as a comprehensive description of HIADS there is a chance to learn about HIYA (Hayling Island Young Actors) and their activities. On the stage (2pm till 4pm) will be some short workshops – an introduction to mime, a chance to read parts in a scene from a recent play, and some improvised comedy.

Wardrobe and props specialists will be on hand to show and tell about their roles and the opportunities that exist for willing volunteers. There will be face painting for children of all ages (10am till 2pm) and enthusiastic builders and artists can view sets and a fabulous workshop.

Modern sound and lighting equipment are part of the magic that the theatre creates and these will be demonstrated and explained. Refreshments are going to be available in the foyer where box office and front of house will describe their functions.

This a great opportunity to explore this wholly volunteer-run theatre and to get involved with the fun that accompanies live shows. For youngsters it is great chance to acquire discipline and creativity and to build skills that will enhance a curriculum vitae.

Soft drinks available all day and the bar will be open from 2pm.

For more information and details of timings please refer to the Station Theatre website www.stationtheatre.co.uk or call in or phone between 10 and noon Monday to Saturday 023 9246 6363.

Finding Your Feet

7:30pm (and 2:30pm Friday matinee),
Seats at £4.50 (front 3 rows £3.00).
wheelchair seats are only available from the box office

Starring: Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie, Joanna Lumley, David Hayman

When ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) discovers that her husband of forty years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge with her estranged, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie). The two could not be more different - Sandra is a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to her community dance class, where gradually she starts finding her feet... and romance.

In this hilarious and heart-warming modern comedy, a colourful group of defiant and energetic ‘baby boomers’ show Sandra that retirement is only the beginning, and that divorce might just give her a whole new lease of life - and love.
