June

Well what a cracking night in the theatre we offered with "Stones in his Pockets". The combination of Rod's enthusiasm, imagination, thorough planning and attention to detail really paid off. In addition, we were treated to lovely, warm and inventive performances from Dave and Jimmy and Jess's gorgeous playing. The simple set worked well and was subtly lit by Ian, with evocative and witty slides from Dik. Richard stage managed attentively. The commitment shown by Rod and the whole cast and crew, can be measured by the fact that they rehearsed every night in the week prior to opening (not possible, I know, for plays with larger casts). Having seen two rehearsals and two performances, I can testify to the effect this had on the standards on display. Congratulations to all concerned!

The final production this season is Chris Carpenter's take on "A Midsummer- Night's Dream". Judging by the ideas discussed in planning and the work already started on the set by The Golden Hammers (especially John Ellam and Wendy Morris) this will be a beautiful and rollicking end to the theatrical year. We wish Chris and her large cast and crew all the very best!

And now some announcements for the future. Starting 2019 in February we have Michael Palin's comedy 'Weekend', directed by Vicky Whitehill. March will see our Youth Theatre with the possibility of a smaller main-house production the week after. Late April sees John Scampion's production of the recently released 'King Charles III'. June is still to be announce and in July we have the musical 'Yank!', a World War 2 musical love story, with a moving and evocative score. Details of these productions appear elsewhere.

Our new Box Office system is up and running, so no excuses not to be booking for the next - and future - Talisman productions.

Enjoy the summer.
