Frankie’s Bar on Vera Playa presents the 1,200€ they had raised to three families at most need from the recent ­devastating floods in Vera. photos © bluwater web design all so very much.” If you would like more details or want to become a member and help with The Legion’s good work for British serving and ex-service p ­ ersonnel and their families (you don’t need to be ­ex-forces to join) go along to one of the meetings or contact the ­Chairman Peter Phillips on 693 483 392 email: ­ or visit the web site at

On Saturday 1st December the Albox Branch of The Royal British Legion held their Poppy Masked Ball well attended by over 90 members and guests where the raffle raised an amazing 573€. (pictured above, John and Sandra Evans). The following Thursday they held their annual Xmas Bazaar where a large number of stalls included The RBL Tombola, Books and Poppy Goods, a variety of Crafts and Home-made Produce, Iron Art of El Real Ind. Est. in Antas, Pet Supplies …. The money raised on this day from the raffle and tombola, to which a number of local outlets so generously donated, meant that in one week the Branch managed to raise n ­ early 1,200€ for The Legion’s good causes of providing ­welfare, care and assistance to serving and ex-service men & women and their families, a truly tremendous achievement. Chairman Peter Phillips said “it never ceases to amaze me how generous people can be, even when they themselves are feeling the pinch. This money will ­allow The Legion to continue helping those who need it most, both here in Spain and in the UK. Thank you Page 8

A total of 800€ was raised by customers of Iceland and presented to Vera Town Hall to assist in the ­rebuilding of flood affected areas, as well as b ­ uying extra shopping to donate to the Red Cross. Yet ­ ­another e­ xample of how a community pulls together in times of d ­ isaster.

Charles Dickens

A CHRISTMAS CAROL adapted and directed by Otfried Laux

The making of A Christmas Carol By MarianMay Probably the most popular story for this time of year, A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, is in ­rehearsals, in preparation for the performances at The New ­Kimrick Theatre from January 18th to 21st. ­Otfried Laux, the Director of this production follows on from the success of Oliver, adding a few more tricks to this timeless classic. As usual there are many special effects included in his productions and for this Otfried has a team of ­experienced and multi talented people working ­behind the scenes in order to realise his ideas. Otfried has his own individual style of Directing and has used improvisation workshops to define the ­characters and their roles within the play. The ­original script was revised and rewritten for the present day by MarianMay and the actors are encouraged to ­follow the new script, whilst also making further changes when necessary as their roles are developed further. The actors then begin the rehearsals and the behind the scenes work begins. Page 22

The workings of this production Otfried begins with his ideas for the stage and set ­design, using his many years of experience and ­material knowledge and constructs a scaled working model.

For Oliver he used draping cloths which ­became part of the props and the scenery, allowing the scenes to be changed by the backstage crew ­without pauses in the performance. In this production, A Christmas Carol, there are many very quick scene changes and so Otfried has designed material screens on wheeled frames, and by using clever lighting techniques, ­creates the ­atmosphere as well as allowing the scene changes to occur behind these screens, unnoticed by the ­audience. Janet Mills with her great organisational skills is in charge of making Otfried’s designs become a reality as she finds her team of carpenters and ­builders and oversees the construction of the sets. The music and sound effects are very important in ­order to create the correct atmosphere and link the scenes ­together and Steve Fear from Bay ­ Radio, has once again provided all the ­ ­appropriate sounds effects for this. It is a long and ­arduous task for him, as he has to search for the right sounds from archives of ­thousands. He then has to ­ download, order and slot them into the ­ correct time frame ......

He uses a mixture of ­ modern music and festival ­Christmas carols for the h ­ appier moments in the play. Harps, street sounds, cathedral chimes, school bell, bird sounds, winds and whispering voices provide for every mood, crossing over the scenes and creating the correct atmosphere for each moment, as the story ­unfolds, cleverly matching the music and sounds to the words spoken by the characters. Tony Vasey, wardrobe manager for the Indalo ­Players has worked hard utilising many of the costumes in stock, sorting, labelling and making sure that they are in good condition providing the mix of modern and period designs required for the story. The three spirits in the play needed special costumes which have been made by Ruth Johnson Wood and Sue Mehmet, who both also have a role within the play. Otfried had special ideas as he says a spirit is ­neutral, with no feelings or expression of emotions of any type and to depict this Otfried was inspired by the masks used in the Comedia del Arte, which had to be ­specially made. MarianMay was given the role of mask maker and used espartarie and plaster of paris to form the shapes on the actors faces. When dry they had to be painted and decorated to give the effect that Otfried requires. When all this comes together - music ,lighting, ­costume and acting - we will have another fabulous production and then all we need is you, the audience to make it all worthwhile. The performances will be held at The New Kimrick Theatre from Friday the 18th to Monday the 21st of January at 8pm with a matinee at 3.30 pm on both ­Saturday and Sunday. A seating plan for the theatre can be seen on the Indalo Players Facebook page at: Indalo Players - El Teatro, Mojacar . Tickets are ­available from Ruth ­Johnson Wood on ­mobile number 637 817 982.

Jim ­Evans only set out to do good when he funded research that will save lives - but all his money can’t protect him from a brilliant but twisted mind. DEATH IN THE SUN by Adam Creed D I Staffe leaves London to recuperate in ­Andalucia ­little knowing that he will become embroiled in a ­savage murder case which will have repercussions on his own life. PURGATORY by Tomas Eloy Martinez Emily Dupuy sees her long dead husband in a New ­Jersey diner but her husband was one of the thousands of victims of the Argentinian military regime. This is the last novel by Martinez before his death, exploring ­Argentina - the meaning of exile and lost love. GONE MISSING by Linda Costello Three teenagers have vanished from Ohio’s Amish country and Agent John Tomasetti asks Chief of Police Kate Burkholder to consult on the case, he feels her Amish background will help. SAVING PRIVATE SARBI by Sandra Lee This is the true story of Sarbi, a black Labrador cross, trained as an explosive detection dog. Sarbi goes ­missing in the wilds of Afghanistan and is found 13 months later having survived her injuries, the enemy’s weapons and the extremes of winter and summer. Page 23

A BIG DOGGY THANK YOU Fritz, Fifi, Ben and Ginger, the almost human dogs who appeared in the Almanzora Charitable Theatre production of “It’s a Dogs Life” by Pam Valentine would like to express their thanks to the real human audience who came to see them perform. They are tremendously pleased that the performance at “La Parrilla” in Albox on the 30th November raised 502€ for APSA and at “The Tennis Club” in Huercal Overa 142.50€ was raised for “The Dog House”. This, of course, will help to feed hungry puppies such as “Ginger” and might even get Fifi a good trim. Those who came to see the play might like to know that Fritz has been kept well away from children and is believed to be patrolling the perimeter of Camp Bastian in Afghanistan and is completely at home with the searchlights and barbed wire. Fifi has been adopted by a local panaderia/bolleria owner so “titbits” are in plentiful supply. Ginger is still chewing slippers but sits and begs perfectly. Ben was laid to rest next to his owner. It could not have been a better outcome - money for the dogs and good homes. Finally, the director, Ron Makin and the cast would like to thank everyone concerned for making the production a great success. If anyone would like to know more about our drama group please call Lorraine on 950 064 484 or 687 569 113. If you would like to help APSA in any way you can contact them on 663 762 642 and The Dog House on 626 766 073.
