What a year 2020 has been for everyone!
The Hills Players were excited to end the year on a high, presenting their one and only performance for the year for all their dear supporters. The performance formed part of their 40th anniversary celebrations and it was quite the feat putting together the show with such a short lead up time. They weren’t even sure whether it would be going ahead!
The show consisted of three short plays, a running gag (with a surprise addition from Josh), and of course, four wonderful songs from Helen Weir, which nostalgically transported the audience through the decades. The show was then topped off with a wonderfully whimsical Christmas poem from Ann Johnson and a Christmas Carol – with a Hills Player twist – adding some ‘Christmas Cheer’ to the evening.
The Hill Players’ 40th birthday was commemorated with the ‘cutting of the cake’ by their longest serving members, Ann Johnson, Faye Fuhlbohm, Margaret Reid, and of course their faithful lighting man, Alan Fuhlbohm. It was such a great night, made more special by the wonderful support of the groups regular and committed patrons. The Players are forever grateful as they couldn’t do it without them and it wouldn’t have been half as much fun.
The Hills Players would like to extend a special thanks to Tim Mander, State Member for Everton, for his continued support and for the generous donation of the Christmas Hamper that went into the raffle for the night.
Hopefully 2021 will return to normal and The Players can perform the planned play ‘Always a Bridesmaid.’
Watch this space.
The Hills Players would like to wish everyone a safe and Merry Christmas.
