Tickets being sold out weeks before the first performance give some idea of the audience anticipation for this show and they weren’t disappointed!
Superbly directed by Jan Clemens and brilliantly acted by a large cast, many new to the TATS stage, the audiences were enthralled by the set and high standards of both acting and singing, fabulously supported by the live band and professional sound and lighting.
As usual there are also many unsung heroes behind the scenes of these productions so a massive thank you from all at TATS for all help received to enable this show to be a great success.
TATs were delighted by the attendance at their 1st Poets and Pints evening on 11th February.
A few people came solely to watch and listen but most took the opportunity to perform their favourite poem or rhyme.
Recitals were many and varied from Betjeman to Kipling, Morpurgo to Lear, Elliott to Coward, and a number of rhymes and limericks to boot… we even had several self penned poems written and performed by TATS’ own Eilean Moulang.
Thanks to Bob Leslie for being MC, and to all TATS Committee and members who helped organise and run the evening.
All agreed It was a super evening and should be repeated… watch this space.
Here are some quick shots to give a flavour of the night:
