Hello! Members are back at The Pavilion! Woo hoo😀🎉 This is our first play reading since COVID-19. Hosted by Bernard Teuben the group featuring Penny, Gina, Ben, Jason and Michelle read War of the Worlds. Socially distanced of course it was wonderful to just be there. ...
Wow this is great! Was in there last week doing greenroom painting. Nice to see theatre stuff being done.
I would have loved to have seen/heard this. But it is uplifting to see some of my CHP friends getting back together. Any theatre activity, even informal, is sadly still a long way off down here in Melbourne. But the 1812 Theatre here had scheduled to do War of the Worlds this year before Covid invaded. I am hoping they will be able to reschedule it next year. Best wishes to you all.
Misisng my Theatre visits so very much! ☹️
Was it only for members and not for subscribers?

Remember that play when the creepy woman appeared from under the stage and made the first row scream? Today's look back into the not-too-distant past is 2010's "The Woman in Black" with Paul Cashman, Peter Rhodes and a surprise appearance from Leigh Scanlon as the titular woman. Adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from Susan Hill's novel and directed by Paul Sztelma. ...
Great play that still gave me a real fright even though I'd seen the movie. Loved it!
Another memory - heavy rain caused water to inundate the area beneath the stage and our Woman In Black had to lie in wait on a rather soggy mattress! Now that is suffering for your art!
I remember. Brilliant
Saturday 15 August 2020 marks the 75th Anniversary of VP Day. Many members and patrons of Castle Hill Players served in the WWII campaign and saw active service in the Pacific region and beyond. There will be several commemorative ceremonies held, although with Covid restrictions the public is unable to participate. We take this opportunity to salute our service personnel and thank them for their commitment, bravery, and courage. Lest We Forget. ...
A COVID testing unit has set up at Castle Hill Showground in the carpark at the rear of the Pavilion Theatre. With recent positive cases in the district it has been recommended by the state government that those of us who may have come into contact with the virus be tested. It is understood the test is a simple procedure with waiting times varying, depending on demand but averaging around 30 minutes, during which you remain in your car. Take care everyone. ...
