Checkmate – A BTC Zoom Production for the Summer

Hits: 255

Our Zoom premiere – Checkmate – is now cast and rehearsals are underway! Understandably, we’re very excited to be able to bring you this new comedy written especially for Zoom – and for Beckenham Theatre – by Chris Raven who is also directing the show himself. Cathy Diver is the producer with Mike Darbon acting as executive producer. James Williams-Ward is our editor and technical wizard. The anticipated online release date for the Checkmate is Monday, 21st June, timed to coincide with our final release from lockdown so all fingers crossed on both counts!

We are pleased to announce the full cast of Checkmate as follows:

Victoria…………………………………………………………….Nikki Packham

Sally………………………………………………………………….Alison Driscoll

Sally’s husband…………………………………………………Rene Meissner

Izzy…………………………………………………………………..Debbie Griffiths

Francis……………………………………………………………..Mike Azzopardi

Ted…………………………………………………………………..Phil Cohen

Georgie…………………………………………………………… Shauna Fletcher

Candice…………………………………………………………….Cathy Diver

Edward……………………………………………………………. Paul Green

Sebastian………………………………………………………….James Riley

Checkmate is a great initiative from a group of the theatre’s actors who are normally associated with the theatre’s annual pantomime so, when their summer offering hits your computer screens, tablets and mobile phones in June, please do give them your support and tune it to see what they have been up to these past few months!

If you loved The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix, you’re going to love Checkmate too! We hope!
