Wethersfield Amateur Performers Production 2020 Hi DI HI!

Hello all Wappers and Wappers to be!

This is just to let you know that the first meeting of the new production will be held on the 11th September at 8pm at the Wethersfield Village Hall.  There will be nibbles and drinks and will be an opportunity to have a chat and read through some of the script of Hi Di Hi.

Please, don’t be shy! We are looking for budding yellow coats to entertain the Wethersfield audience next March. Even if you don’t wish to act, please come along as we will always need people to help with costumes, front and back of house etc.  Also if you know anybody who may be interested please bring them along with you.

Looking forward to see you on the 11th September.

Secondary Cause of Death

It is time to update villagers on the plans for the next production
with regard to ticket sales and information on the show itself.

This year there will be some changes to ticket sales due to the closure of the Post Office in Wethersfield. The Box Office will be situated at either the houses of John Pearce,

Charlotte Holliday or Geraldine Stuckley, this will be made clear by having a large ‘Box Office’ sign outside the relevant house on the day.

Tickets will also be available from the new Post Office facility in the Village Hall, the sign will be placed outside on the appropriate day.

Ticket prices will be £8 for adults (£7 concessions for over £65 or under 16). On the Saturday night we will have a Fish and Chip supper with tables. The ticket price will be £15 for the Saturday night including the fish and chip supper.

Tickets are due to be on sale in the next couple of weeks. John Pearce will be available for more information on tickets on 01371 851019 on

It is important that all members help to push the production and encourage friends family etc. to buy tickets, as without the main Post Office, exposure of the Play will be less than in previous years.

The Play itself as mentioned earlier is going well and is a comedy murder mystery, on the Friday and Saturday night ‘The last Drops’ will be playing their popular tunes to entertain the audience.

More information will follow soon.

WAP 2019 Production ‘Secondary Cause of Death’ A Murder Mystery Comedy

Hello there WAPers!


2019 Production News

Hope you have had a great summer particularly enjoying the weather! The Committee has had a proposal for the 2019 production which was adopted and the details are below.

The next event will be a murder mystery comedy play “Secondary Cause of Death” by Peter Gordon. This is part of the triology which ‘Murdered to Death’ was the first,  performed in 2009.

Brief Outline:-

The Colonel has engaged the formidable Cynthia Maple to run a murder mystery evening.  She has engaged the services of Cardew Longfellow (the thesbian) because he looks like the Colonel.  Inspector Pratt arrives on the scene.  He is the ultimate incompetent (he would refer to himself as incontinent) detective who consistently muddles his words to highly amusing effect.  There is a back reference to Murdered to Death, when the colonels wife was confined to an asylum.  She has escaped and as bodies pile up Pratt draws all the wrong conclusions around several double roles of characters.

There are 3 maybe 4 Male roles and 6 Female roles.


John Wollard will be returning as the Director and John Pearce is the Producer.

The Play will be introduced to members and non-members on the 5th September at 8pm  with a presentation at the Village Hall and auditions held on the 19th/20th September (Times to be confirmed)

Production Dates are the 28th February 1st and 2nd of March 2019.  There will be no Matinee.
