The Prospect Players – 40 years of Amateur Drama In Arnold, Nottingham
The Prospect Players is an extremely friendly amateur dramatic group based in Arnold, Nottingham. Now in our 37th year, we have staged over 100 productions. We have rehearsals twice a week, traditionally Tuesdays and Fridays, at the Pondhills Community Centre in Arnold. We consider our high standard of performance to be mainly attributed to that of teamwork and friendship. The group usually performs three shows a season, which lasts from November to May each year. All our performances are currently based at the Bonington Theatre in Arnold, Nottingham (which is part of the Arnold Leisure Centre). The shows that we perform range across a whole spectrum of genres, from farce and mystery, to musicals and period dramas.
Come and join the Prospect Players on their trip to late 1960’s New York from Wednesday 13th to Saturday 16th November . Performances start at 7:30 pm, Ticket price £7, concessions £6.50
What happens when you’re the only Loyalist, fish restaurateur - left in a sexual revolution? It’s the 70s, and Barney Cashman, middle-aged wannabe lothario is ready to defect. Whisky-supping man-eaters; unstable actresses and staunchly depressed housewives all lock horns with our hero, but where will true lust lie for the beleaguered cod expert? Prepare to laugh yourself back in time and all the way into Barney’s mum’s apartment. Classic wit from the TONY, EMMY, Golden Globe and Lifetime Achievement (American Comedy Awards) Award-winning writer of ‘Barefoot in the Park’ and ‘Sweet Charity’ – Neil Simon

Four out-of-condition, middle-aged businessmen sent off on a team building exercise in the Lake District succeed in being the first people ever to get shipwrecked on an island on Derwentwater. Bound in fog, menaced by wildlife and cut off from the world, this perfunctory middle-class exercise turns into a carnival of recreminations, French cricket and sausages.
