M for Murder" was a superb opening production for 2017.
Gill Bowser's first main stage production attracted satisfyingly
large audiences and a level of concentration in the auditorium
of the "hearing a pin drop" type. Comments from audience
members leaving were unanimously positive, frequently glowing.
Many thanks to Gill and her excellent team of actors and
backstage crew who brought it all to life so well. Especial
thanks to Brian on lighting and John, as set designer, for
providing just the right visual atmosphere which enhanced
the production immeasurably.
March sees a complete change of style, scene and era - for
Amanda Whittington's hilarious modern comedy "Ladies Day".
Graham Underhill and his small, but perfectly formed, team
of actors, mainly of the female variety, are currently working
extremely hard - and laughing lots - rehearsing the next
show. This should be another great night out at our theatre,
to continue what is proving to be a very popular and artistically
lauded Talisman season.
As many of you may know, for family and health reasons,
Amanda Dodd has had to step down from directing Willy Russell's
updated "Stags and Hens" which is our end of season show,
playing in June.
"Cometh the hour, cometh the man "(or woman in this case)
and the indefatigable and courageous Corrina Jacob has stepped
up to the Director's chair for this one, which will continue
as planned. Many thanks to her and our good wishes go to
Amanda and to Brian for a speedy return to health.
