April

I really love it when the theatre is as lively and buzzing as it was at the end of last week. I think it's absolutely my favourite time and atmosphere.
"The Musical of Musicals - the Musical!" was truly a triumph. The energy, professionalism and sheer talent of the cast of four - Kim, Kenny, Kevin and Val held even the most non-musical minded among us spellbound and Liam, as Musical Director, kept the whole show bowling along at a great rate.
Huge thanks of course go to our own Steve Smith in his first direction of a musical here at the Talisman and in this he was more than ably aided and abetted by Clive, June, Nigel, Dik and all the other good people who helped to make this piece such a success, in artistic and Box Office terms Full houses and standing ovations were very much the order of the day here - and rightly so.

The Student Show earlier in March also proved a huge success - both plays were confidently performed by the youngsters involved - many of whom could teach some of us about acting and stage presence. Thanks again to one and all and particularly to the directors, Corrina and Rosie, for all their hard work. It is a great privilege to be able to see the next generation of Talispersons on stage, and doing so well.

Coming next to our stage is the beautiful play "The Cherry Orchard". It is a while since we last staged a play by Chekhov and this wonderful classic piece is in the very capable hands of Director John Dawson who has assembled a large cast and a veritable galaxy of stars to bring it to life. It should be a truly theatrical treat and one which offers plenty of modern relevance. If you love theatre don't miss it!

FUTURE PRODUCTIONS - I am delighted to announce that the Executive Committee has agreed that the first play of 2018 (February) will be Alan Ayckbourn's "Absent Friends" to be directed by Vanessa Comer. This is one of the Master's earliest and finest plays and offers excellent parts for 6 actors. Please see our website for further details. Audition Sunday 21st May at 10am.

REMINDER - for all directors. Please, after auditions and BEFORE contacting would be cast members, check your casting decisions with The Artistic Director (me) , or one of the Artistic team (viz Steve or Sam).

All the very best,
Chris
