Readings on the Common Return

Readings on the Common are returning! Beginning Sunday, May 2, at 4:00 PM, the Walpole Players will be holding our weekly meetings for Readings on the Walpole Common. These readings are not performances, rather simply reading through an assortment of scripts to choose one or more for another outdoor staged reading later in the summer. Anyone and everyone is invited to join us as a participant, as these readings are not meant to have an audience. This is a great way to discover your inner thespian! We will meet near the Bandstand. Please bring a lawn chair, water bottle, and a mask just in case one is needed.

Readings on the Common are Back!

The Players will again host weekly readings on the Walpole Common at 4:00 PM each Sunday, beginning Sept. 20. We will let the weather dictate how long we can continue, but for now we have beautiful fall weather to enjoy while outdoors!

The recent staged reading of The Importance of Being Earnest grew out of these readings

No experience necessary—everyone is welcome! Rain or shine—just bring a lawn chair, water bottle, a sweater or jacket, and face mask (just in case we can’t stay 6 feet apart), and meet by the Bandstand.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST Comes to the Common

The Walpole Players will be presenting a staged reading of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, this Saturday, September 12, at 5:00 PM, on the Walpole Town Common.

This witty comedy about the trivialities of late Victorian society is sure to be a lot of fun! The performance is free and open to the public, but please remember to bring your choice of seating (lawn chair, blanket, etc.).

Since this performance is outdoors, we will be using a sound system so that the actors can be heard more easily. Since this is a staged reading, the actors will be in costume and will move around in the designated stage area, but they will be using their scripts.

In case of inclement weather, the performance will take place the following Saturday, September 19. If there is any question regarding the weather, a decision will be made by 2:00 PM on the day of the performance and will be posted in our website: TheWalpolePlayers.org.

Please note that all social distancing requirements and guidelines will apply at the performance. Family/friend groups should seat themselves at least six feet from other groups; if it is not possible to maintain a six-foot separation while seated, masks must be worn. If attendance reaches 100 people or more, per the governor’s Emergency Order #63, masks must be worn. Audience members will be responsible for following these guidelines.

Please email WalpolePlayers@gmail.com for further information, or call (603) 756-2535.
