STAFF members at the Reporter have many strings to their bow but, luckily for a village drama group, one of us can actually act!
Town centre sales executive James Kirk jumped at the chance appear in the Clavering Players production of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice after a last drop out.
He said: “I was thrown in the deep end because I only had a week to learn the part of Mr Boo, along with fellow player Mark Anstead who played Ray Say.
“After another actor had to leave the cast I got the call and having a significant amount to learn I was a little anxious, but also at ease, because I know from past experience that the Clavering Players produce a high standard of work.
“It was a real pleasure to perform with such a talented cast and I was more than happy returning to the stage after previous work in TV/Film, which requires such a different level of performance.”
The show was a complete sell out and was so successful that another run has now been scheduled on July 2/3, 7pm, at Clavering Village Hall.
James will once again be appearing alongside lead actor Lara Anstead, both directed by Melissa Jones
He added: “I was proud of everyone from cast to crew and knew we had something special here when taking our bow to standing ovations on the first night.”
