THE Lowestoft Players have certainly learnt to multi-task recently, as they have tackled several ambitious projects simultaneously.

The Players have been kept busy over the past few months, dividing their time between renovation work at their new home in The Bethel, preparing for their big move and rehearsing for their forthcoming production of Boogie Nights.

THE Lowestoft Players have certainly learnt to multi-task recently, as they have tackled several ambitious projects simultaneously.

The Players have been kept busy over the past few months, dividing their time between renovation work at their new home in The Bethel, preparing for their big move and rehearsing for their forthcoming production of Boogie Nights.

Since the former Seamen's Mission in Whapload Road was purchased, a major army of volunteers has been assigned the challenging task of converting the building into a new home for the society.

Meanwhile, further volunteers have been required to carefully pack up all the costumes, props and other essential items necessary for the running of a successful theatre group.

With the move from the Players' current home in Stradbroke Road scheduled for the first week of September, both the production team and cast are hoping that the transition amidst rehearsals for Boogie Nights will run smoothly.

There is just a month to go until their production of Boogie Nights bursts onto the Marina Theatre stage and rehearsals are continuing at pace, with over 30 song and dance routines to work on.

The production begins on Tuesday, September 22, and runs until Saturday September 26. Tickets are available by calling 01502 533200.

If you have any 70s-looking day or disco-wear that you would be willing to donate or loan to the Players, the wardrobe team would love to hear from you, on 01502 587090 or 01502 567114.
