A Vicar of Dibley Christmas

20th – 23rd November 2019

TATS Turvey sold out vicar of dibley poster


Thank you for supporting our recent production of A Vicar of Dibley Christmas

Four sell-out audiences competed with each other to raise the largest sum in our raffle each night with the highest night being donated to charity.

Our Saturday Night audience were the winners and the Raffle proceeds of £208 will be donated to
the Trussel Trust Food Bank, in Bedford.

Thank you all for your generosity.

The directors changed but we still made a record breaking return to Dibley in November, following our first visit back in March 2017.

The latest antics of the Rev Geraldine Grainger and the other eccentric residents of Dibley took us through a madcap selection of tv highlights, from Alice’s discovery of her pregnancy, through to the birth during the Dibley Nativity, via the great storm and Radio Dibley – including Frank’s ‘coming out’ and perhaps the worst audition sessions you’ve ever seen.

We had fabulous audience feedback for this show, so well done to cast crew and especially directors Karen Pickwick and Michele Swales, who also brought us ‘Allo,’Allo’ in 2011, ‘Calendar Girls’ in 2012 and the panto ‘Knight Fever’ in 2015.

And… we hope this video captures the essence of this popular and very funny production, with thanks to Stephanie Munno for the photos.

Farndale

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of a Christmas Carol.

Wed 5 – Sat 8 June  2019

In June we welcomed back Pauline Adams to the TATS directing role for another of the hilarious Farndale comedies, this time appropriately, being June!, its just had to be  Farndale Christmas Carol.

This was the fourth ‘Farndale’ to be performed by TATS and followed the hilarious ‘…The Haunted Through Lounge and Recessed Dining Nook at Farndale Castle’, again directed by Pauline, which went down a storm with audiences four years ago.

Pauline said, “Having been in the first 2 Farndale plays that TATS performed some years ago as Banquo {Macbeth’s son}, then as The Inspector in the second, I found them so funny and quite a challenge that years later when the opportunity came up for me to direct something, it had to be a Farndale – The Haunted through lounge and recessed nook at Farndale Castle, I enjoyed it so much I wanted to do another one….so there we are.”

“With some audience participation and a rogue PA system to contend with, this was an assault on the original Scrooge, performed by not-very-good actors. “People were treated to a night of sheer silliness, when the play took on some unexpected twist and turns.”

Little Shop of Horrors

So we say goodbye to Audrey 2 as she wends her way home to Twickenham – next stop for her we hear is Scotland!

What can you say about the TATS production of Little Shop of Horrors,directed by Kate Brewster with dad Tim as musical director.

Fabulous, stupendous, unbelievable, fantastic, professional, just a few of the superlatives provided by some of our audience over the week.

Many congratulations to all the cast and crew for a stunning show.
