Frodsham Players plan outdoor shows to beat the pandemic

FRODSHAM Players are planning to stage “Covid secure” open air performances next year to enable them to keep going during the pandemic.
Having been forced to cancel their Spring and Summer productions this year, and fearing that coronavirus restrictions may still be in place next year, they are taking no chances.
But they hope that by next winter, they may be able to return with a traditional, indoor play at Frodsham Community Centre towards the end of their season.
In the meantime, The Players have been keeping active online, presenting instalments from three spooky stories on their YourTube channel.
The plays chosen were “The Signalman” by Charles Dickens, “The Fall of the House of Usher” by Edgar Allen Poe, and “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
Presented in instalments, the plays can be viewed now and are being uploaded up until December 23.
Social distancing presented some challenges for the performers but these were solved by society members filming individually in their own homes, using suitably ghostly lighting and appropriate background music.
The project has kept members busy and has entertained a good number of their regular supporters who would otherwise been denied their normal helpings of amateur theatre in Frodsham
