Members of the Rep provided the entertainment for the Seniors Ladies Night at Ponteland Golf Club, a new venture for the Society which proved a great success! The performers used a variety of songs to tell the story of a difficult love affair. The Golf Club members were very surprised when Philip Browell burst out from the bar shouting in anger and then started to sing ‘That’s Amore’ but they soon realised that this was the entertainer! Izzy Ions followed this with a dramatic ‘Stop in the Name of Love’ and Jules Stevenson Warrender, Lizzie Browell and Hayley Olsen amusingly sang ‘Wash that Man Right out of my Hair’

Alex Easten gave a powerful rendition of ‘Somebody to Love’ with his backing group, which included Hayley Olsen and Lizzie Browell. Jonny Woollett provided comic moments, improvising and involving the audience, much to their amusement. The rest of the programme is too lengthy to mention but suffice to say it was equally superb and was enthusiastically applauded by the Golf Club audience with many individual compliments from members.

Gav Stevenson Warrender and Rob Walker expertly provided the sound and technical support.

Thanks to Jackie Wighton for her co-ordination of the entertainment and to Brian Hamilton, Seniors Captain and Martin Wighton, Seniors Vice Captain of Ponteland Golf Club for making us so welcome.Chairman Jason Long said ‘One of the core aims of the Rep and Preppies Youth Theatre is to showcase talent. I am delighted we have another format to add to our repertoire.’

Once again our Pont Rep members did us proud!
