“The Railway Children” – 29th and 30th November, 1st December
Our major production of 2018, “The Railway Children”, is over! Photos from the show are now available on the Gallery Page. A video of the whole show is currently being edited and will be shown at 6:30pm on Thursday 17th January in Wedmore Village Hall, and afterwards will be available on YouTube.
Since the hero of our show was to be a gigantic steam train in an Edwardian railway station, we decided to research this ‘character’ fully before designing the production. Cast and production team piled into the Wedmore Community Bus, followed by a cavalcade of cars, and went to the East Somerset Railway at Cranmore for a morning of fun and photos. We also shot the video trailer that we used in all our publicity.
The volunteer staff at East Somerset Railway could not have been more helpful. They are rightly proud of their restored station, locomotives and carriages, and took obvious pleasure in showing them off to us. Lots of images and props from our visit were used in our production.
