Anyone for Tennis? Spring is nearly sprung and mhya’s footlights present a weekend full of live theatre at Merchistoun Hall, Horndean. Merchistoun Hall youth arts known as mhya proudly present a lively weekend of theatre the weekend of 16th & 17th March.
On Saturday 16th March footlights presents in association with Samuel French Ltd Neil Simon’s ‘California Suite’ a throughly modern classic that tells the tail of visitors from New York, an Oscar nominated actress preparing for the awards evening, a businessman who awakes to find a prostitute in his bed and the bickering friends who fight and fall out over tennis! Not to be missed!
On Sunday 17th March, footlights presents ‘The Balcony and The Call Centre written by one of the group fifteen year old Callan Riches! Two hilarious tails that can relate to real life from the wedding reception from hell and the call centre where staff morale hits highs and lows with practical jokes and the boss just isn’t amused! These two performance on the Sunday will be followed by a short improvised session of Get off my lines! A footlights favourite!
Performances on both nights start at 7:30pm and tickets are available on the door at £6/5 or in advance by emailing email@example.com
mhya Footlights presents Neil Simon’s California Suite on Saturday 16th March at 7:30pm.
In Visitor from New York, Hannah Warren is a Manhattan workaholic who flies to Los Angeles to retrieve her teenaged daughter Jenny after she leaves home to live with her successful screenwriter father William. The bickering divorced couple is forced to decide what living arrangements are best for the girl.
Conservative middle-aged businessman Marvin Michaels is the Visitor from Philadelphia, who awakens to discover a prostitute named Bunny unconscious in his bed after consuming a bottle of vodka. With his wife Millie on her way up to the suite, he must find a way to conceal all traces of his uncharacteristic indiscretion.
The Visitors from London are British actress Diana Nichols, a first-time nominee for the Academy Award for Best Actress, and her husband Sidney, a once-closeted antique dealer who increasingly has become indiscreet about his sexual orientation. The Oscar is an honor that could jumpstart her faltering career, although Diana knows she doesn’t have a chance of winning. She is in deep denial about the true nature of her marriage of convenience, and as she prepares for her moment in the spotlight, her mood fluctuates from hope to panic to despair.
The Visitors from Chicago are two affluent couples who are best friends. Stu Franklyn and his wife Gert and Mort Hollender and his wife Beth are taking a much-needed vacation together. Things begin to unravel quickly when Beth is hurt during a mixed doubles tennis match and Mort accuses Stu of having caused her injury by lobbing the ball.
A fantastic show which will include a short interval where the bar will open for refreshments. Tickets are priced at £6 or £5 cons available on the door in in advance by contacting

The very creepy tail of the hotel that had 100 floors and on some of which you had to face your fears! From poisoned cookies to a cleaner that couldn’t stand cleaning but ended up loving her feather duster! You could not have hoped for a better chilling performance on a chilly February evening! They all worked really hard from September through to February to create every single aspect of this production from story lines to lighting and sound effects to henry hoover!
