Polly the Pirate Parrotís blog
With all these so-called exotic birds squawking and flapping their fancy
feathers, itís not easy to find a real parrot with character.
And all this, ďWhoís a pretty boy then?Ē is as fake as Aldi rum.
This is my secret: I am the real Polly. I have travelled the oceans wide, yes.
After all Iíve seen from up high, my tales would make your hairs stand on end.
Sadly my beak is sealed as this is a family show. Also I canít stand the sight of blood.
I donít need to fluff my feathers. I know who I am and I know I was a loved parrot once, long ago.
Right now I need to keep a low profile in a place you donít usually find parrots. So watch out for the real Polly and get your tickets fast.
Performances took place at Cumnor Village Hall on Thursday 10th (7.30pm), Friday 11th (7.30pm) and Saturday 12th (2.00 pm and 7.00pm) December 2015. Rehearsals were on Thursday evenings from the beginning of September, and additionally every Sunday afternoon from the beginning of November.
A further update from the Director
A word from the Director
It is with enormous pleasure that I get to indulge myself directing Treasure Island, the most wonderful tale of pirates and treasure. As Ian Bannerman adapts this much-prized story to our needs, let us take you all out to sea, capturing your imagination and bringing the book to life as only the Cumnor Players can.
I am really excited to be working with the Cumnor Players again on this exciting adventure with such a fantastic and dedicated team. I started with the very serious Darke Years production in 2012 and ran a couple of childrenís theatre workshops in between, finally joining an all-star cast on stage for Alice (I loved being the big bad queen.)
And here I am again - where actually I intend to continue with my Queen of Hearts persona as DirectorÖ.sshhh - I wonít tell anyone if you donít!
So I hope you will join me for a good 'ole swash-buckling time. You can expect bad baddies, good goodies, plots on top of plots and of course treats and, most importantly, treasures!
