our splendid run of high selling productions continued unabated
with Graham Buckingham Underhill's production of Amanda
Whittington's sparkling comedy "Ladies Day". In the company
of the four female fish packers and an assortment of men,
all played by Ian Stares, we were transported from Hull
to Royal Ascot and back again, in highly entertaining fashion.
The ladies (Kathy, Emma, Caroline) did us proud and it was
great to see a compelling first performance (for us) from
the talented Leigh Walker, who will be appearing again on
our stage soon, in a very different sort of play "The Cherry
Orchard". Thanks to one and all.
Coming next we have the intriguingly entitled and highly
ambitious "The Musical of Musicals - the Musical" which
offers something a little different, but equally entertaining,
with its cast of four talented actors and singers . Direction
is by the immensely capable Steve Smith, Choreography by
Clive Bennett and Musical Direction by Liam Walker. You
will see from what Steve has written at the beginning of
the Talismag, that this is a fascinating idea for a musical
and it's in excellent hands here. This really is a show
not to miss. Please note the shorter than usual run - and
Following this one and just about to go into rehearsal,
we have a complete change of style, era and mood with Chekhov's
beautiful Classic play "The Cherry Orchard", to be directed
by John Dawson and containing a fine, and very starry, cast
David Draper's production of "Ladies in Lavender" (our main-stage
November production) will be auditioning on Sunday 2nd April
- usual arrangements - 10.30 am - meet for coffee. Auditions
start shortly after. Fuller details about the play and the
roles available appear on the Auditions page of this website.
See you at the theatre!
