After several weeks’ hiatus during the recent lockdown, the Butterfly
Creek Theatre Troupe is gearing up for its next production.
And following last year’s great success with the Agatha Christie
murder mystery And Then There Were None, the troupe has chosen a
play in a similar vein, but this time one with a New Zealand setting.
Snap by Fiona Farrell is an adaptation of a detective novel by Ngaio
Marsh called Photo Finish. The play, to be directed by Anne
Manchester, is set in the 1960s on a mansion by a South Island lake.
It features six men and four women, of varying ages, with the story
centring around an operatic diva a little past her best and her motley
retinue. These include a young protégé, assorted maids and
managers and of course a detective. No singing will be required!
Although at press time level 2 restrictions were still in place,
affecting how many people can gather at any one time, the troupe is
confident it can proceed with rehearsals and mount a production
safely, even if audience numbers may need to be restricted and
seated at a distance from each other.
“I think everyone is keen to resume some of our normal community
activities,” said Anne. “We think a good detective mystery put on
near the end of winter will really appeal to our Eastbourne
audiences, and will attract the punters from outside Eastbourne as
Auditions for Snap will be on 6th June from 10am-1pm at St Ronan’s,
234 Muritai Road, Eastbourne with rehearsals beginning June 14 and
performance dates in late August.
