Cook - in Civvies
As we see her on a daily basis;
Dear lovable, affable Cook.

in black leather; burning up the M23
after a day out with the
Guildford Chapter Hell’s Angels;
or creating a tempting dinner in the kitchen;
or taking to the stage.

Our Dear Royal Patron:
H.R.H. Princess Alice of Schleswig-Philistine Von Gotha
und Hans-Knees-und-Bumsen-Daisy Und-So-Weiter
may be able to attend the performance on the final night.
H.R.H. Princess Alice has requested that her favourite hymn, “Schleswig-Philistine Von Gotha und Hans-Knees-und-Bumsen-Daisy Und-So-Weiter. über Alles”
should be sung when she arrives and departs.
Appropriate hymn sheets will be provided.
We wouldn’t want ourselves to appear to have no manners, would we?
Please try to learn the words.
Please, also remember that if our Dear Royal Personage is to be with us, that behaviour will be expected to be in keeping with a decent Middleclass background (or better) from all.
The usual dress code applies
Comfortable, but elegant. Ladies are required to wear hats. No jeans; nothing casual. Dress in as Middle Class a manner as possible..
Incidental music and sound effects provided by Mrs. Parker-Browne on her Pump Organ.
A collection will be taken during the interval;
Proceeds to go to Mrs Parker-Browne’s favourite charity; Saint Judi l'Ines's Hospital, Purley Saint Judi l'Ines, the Patron Saint of the Chronically Flatulent
Costumes created by the nimble fingers of
the Little Sisters of Selective Charity, Streatham Hill; under the watchful eye of Sister Mary Perpetua.
Costumes for Raj, Wladyslaw, Czcibor and Józef specially designed by our talented and artistic Hilda Plantagenet-Featheringstonehaugh.
Scenery created by Nurse Smythe and Mrs Eulalia Hawkins with admirable help from Józef, Czcibor & Wladyslaw,
Beryl, Dolly, Millicent and Mr Cornwallis are reminded that there will be no repetition of the disgraceful dancing in the aisles or silly noises during the Musical Numbers or The Dance of the Vestal Virgins that accompanied the last performance of Cleopatra at Christmastide.
Mrs Parker-Browne is very sensitive about her chronic flatulence and we are very lucky to have her playing the pump organ for our production... it would be a shame to lose her.
