Peninsula thespians re-live Players’ best years

Peninsula Players’ Snow White in 2013 was typical in providing a vehicle for local actors aged from eight to 80.

Former members of the Peninsula Players are inviting the public to take a stroll down memory lane on October 4 and re-live some of the highlights of the theatre company’s best years.

They have organised an afternoon at Whangaparaoa Library which will include displays of costumes, photographs, programmes and props, as well as story-telling and the sharing of anecdotes.

Life member Cynthia Green says it will be both a reunion for players and those who worked behind-the-scenes, as well as a celebration of what the small theatre company achieved over its 30-plus years.

“In its heyday, we were putting on five shows a year, everything from short plays to Gilbert and Sullivan,” Cynthia says.

“We hope members of the public will enjoy to come along and share these memories, providing this is possible under the Covid restrictions. If it’s not possible to have an audience, we will at the very least put on the display.”

The event is part of the Auckland Heritage Festival and will start at 2pm. Admission is free.
