April

What a joy it was to see "Musical of Musicals, the Musical" back on our boards again, after its highly successful mini-tour, attracting as it went on its way huge critical acclaim and much kudos for the Talisman. Thanks go to all involved in this very special show - Steve, Clive, Liam, Kim, Kevin, Kenny and Val and all the dedicated crew who supported it throughout the year-long project.

How fitting also that the last show I mention in this column whilst I am still Artistic Director, should look so firmly and optimistically towards the future - I mean, of course, the excellent double bill presented by our extremely talented Youth Theatre, under the watchful, creative and careful direction of Corrina and Rosie. The theatre owes a huge debt to both of these ladies for all the work they have put into the shows and in ensuring that the Youth Group is such an important and successful part of the Talisman. On the evidence of last week's show, the future of the theatre will be more than safe in the hands of the next generation of thespians.

Well, it's over and out from me, with many many thanks for all the helpful (mainly!) advice and suggestions and comments that I have received over the 7 years as D.O.P, my 2nd "tour of duty", in fact. Thanks especially to a small band of folk (they know who they are) who encouraged me and kept me going at those times when problems seemed over-whelming...

Onwards and upwards (as they say endlessly in "Gardener's Question Time") Make sure you get your tickets early for Gill Bowser's 2nd directorial foray in the elegant shape of "My Cousin Rachel", based on the Daphne du Maurier story. This promises to be a very good show indeed. The small, but perfectly-formed cast are working hard to make it so. Opening night is Mon 16th April.

I am happy to announce the first 2 shows of the season after the Summer break

AUGUST/SEPT 2018 "Breath of Spring" by Peter Coke, DIRECTOR - David Draper :
