The absolute joy that was 'Hats Off!'

July 2022

Our Summer 2022 production was 'Hats Off!' - a Musical Revue and supper show - reminiscent of London's Talk of the Town. Capacity audiences enjoyed the singing, dancing and comedy.....and the delicious home cooked meal.

If you would like to be involved in our future productions, on stage or helping out, please get in touch with Clare Williams on 07743 322209. You would be made very welcome.

Alan Ayckbourn's 'Confusions' played to very appreciative audiences in March. Below are a couple of rehearsal photographs.

Mother Goose has been nominated by NODA for Best Pantomime in Region 8. Huge congratulations to everyone involved.

Mother Goose was a triumph!
Thank you to everyone involved and to our wonderful capacity audiences!

Here are some reactions
The warmth of the production really did put a smile on everyone’s face and was a fitting start to the Christmas season.

Jerry Thomas, as the greedy Squire Fairplay, acted with credibility and confidence. Both his two henchmen, Grabbit and Runn, were excellently overplayed by Liz Curley and Tracey Wilmott. Making full use of the limited stage, spilling out occasionally into the aisle, they tried unsuccessfully to steal Gertie Goose so they could have their own golden eggs.

As a result mayhem ensued!  Some very funny comedic moments from this acting experienced duo.

Gertie ( Jan Irving) in her own handmade goose feathered outfit was extremely funny with very fluid facial expressions, especially when she laid the golden eggs. I understand Jan also made most of the excellent costumes so one very busy lady.

Daniel Curley, as Mother Goose was superb. He certainly knows how to work a stage, with every look and nuance acted with great effect.  With Daniel, you know you are in safe hands and here he acted the epitome of a Pantomime Dame.

Mother Goose.
