January/February

"Cinderella" gave us a fantastically glittery, sparkling and highly entertaining Talisman panto which was hugely enjoyed by everyone who saw it or participated in it... Directed by Steve Smith and choreographed by Clive Bennett, on sets lavishly and beautifully designed by Wendy Morris and in the immensely capable hands of a backstage team led by June Bewick, there was no way it could be anything less than a rip-roaring success - and it was!

Lovely seasoned performing from Alistair, Paige, Des, Gill , Kevin, Val and Kim with excellent support from all the rest of the cast, especially the younger members, ensured that our usual extremely high standards were surpassed again this year .I feel that the Costumes (Sam Harris) and the Lighting (Steve Roberts) contributed greatly to the magic of "Cinderella" and deserve special praise, as does everyone involved. Panto involves a great deal of work -and it brings a different audience to our theatre. For many children it is their first and definitive contact with live theatre and, as such, it is a vital part of our programme.

Thanks to one and all.

Our next production offers a change of mood, tempo and style with Alan Ayckbourn's wickedly funny and wryly observed play "Absent Friends". Vanessa Comer's perfectly formed cast of six are already into full rehearsal with this one which,encourages us to laugh at the human foibles and weaknesses which are so much a part of all of us. Not to be missed!

I do hope you all had an excellent Christmas. Good wishes for the New Year,
Chris x
