Murder in Rehearsal, 14th to 15th September, supper at 19:45
By Angela Lanyon. The Haddington Players are rehearsing for a production of Romeo and Juliet, but little work is done as minor disaster follows minor disaster, until a member of the cast gets murdered off-stage. The whole play is laced with humour. This is one of our ever popular Murder Mystery Supper evenings with Fish and Chips, Dessert and Coffee. Tables of 8 limited to 10 tables per night. Tickets are already selling and will be allocated on a first come basis.

Sleeping Beauty, 15th December, 15:00 and 19:30
Our Sleeping Beauty follows the original story with seven Good Fairies and Fairy Nightshade who has gone over to the other side. Only the Good Fairies have been invited to the naming ceremony by King Cad and Queen Kitty Cad of their newborn daughter, Princess Rose. As the Good Fairies bestow their gifts, Fairy Nightshade arrives and casts her spell of death by pricking her finger on a spinnng wheel. The Chief Fairy changes this to falling asleep for 100 years only to be woken by a kiss from a Prince. Nurse Nanny Knoo cares for the Princess Rose with the help of Knud, the dogsbody around the Palace. Wigarna, a soothsayer and mystic, foretells events and helps everyone, including the audience, to time travel forward the 100 years, without anyone looking any older! Prince Perceval breaks through the rose hedge and saves the Princess and all ends happily in a wedding.
