Saddleworth Players

Playing the lawyer ... once again!

And once again a lawyer. I am Colin Watt and I am playing Jordan Dillingham, the lawyer, in the play ‘Out Of Sight, Out Of Murder’. Being a man, and able to multitask, this is how I start World War 3, I will also be stage managing this show. The last time I played the lawyer was in ‘Laughter in the Dark’ at Greenfield Methodist Players way back many years ago. Since then I have played many parts and many different types of characters, from Geoffrey, in ‘Stepping Out’ to Baron Zeta, in ‘The Merry Widow’ and Buttons in ‘Cinderella’.

A number of years ago, I met a pianist, on a cruise, and ended up doing a few shows while on board singing mainly Frank Sinatra songs, unbeknown to me this pianist was one of the stars on board, his name was Ray Coussins, and he played many times for Frank Sinatra when Bill Miller was unable to, so I can say I have sung with Frank Sinatra’s pianist!

I now, along with a number of my friends, run a charity concert group, going around to help groups of volunteers raise money for funds to help them to continue their good work, we call ourselves Entertaining Friends, so if you see us on anywhere, come and support us, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

I am looking forward to being in this show.

‘Out of Sight, Out of Murder’ will be performed by the Saddleworth Players at the Millgate Arts Centre, Delph, from 29 September–6 October. Tickets £9 (£5 students) from our online booking office.
