I cannot express how proud I was of you all. It was a fantastic week and the feedback has been tremendous and in all aspects of the show – performances, costumes, set, script, lighting. Thank you to all the cast and crew for making the show a roaring success. Your dedication and hard work really paid off in creating such a fantastic piece of theatre. It very hard on the last night to make sure you thank everyone and I know I missed out a few people so would like to add my thanks here, we cut it very close to ensure we had numbers for Front of House so a special thanks to Janine for stepping in as FOH Manager doubling up her duties, the FOH helpers Joan, Rianna, Mel, Sarah, Stuart, Narinder and John (it was great to see you). As part of our review we on the Committee, we all felt that bringing in a script worked really well for us and have all agreed we would do this again, we believe audience figures were up on last year but don’t have final numbers as yet but thank you all for your help in selling tickets and making this one of the proudest moments Hope to see you all soon, supporting Well did you Evah!

Concorde Players Newsletter Next Show – Well did you Evah! Show Dates are 13 -16 Jul Gary and Ken would like to thank everyone who came along to the auditions on Monday 24 and 31 January We were delighted with the attendance and were impressed with the amount of talent that we have amongst our membership. It was also great to be able to welcome some prospective new members. Because we were not able to get any outside advertising in time for the auditions, we have decided that we will hold one more evening on Monday 28 February and would welcome anyone wishing to attend. Once the auditions have been finished, we can then make decisions on what we would like people to do. We have a few people who are willing to choreograph routines for the show. If anyone wants to get involved in doing some choreography let us know. Obviously, because of the numbers who auditioned, we may not be able to allocate solo numbers to everyone and hope that those who are not asked to do solo’s will not be too disappointed. There will be opportunities for group and backing singing, which, to be honest, is just as important as the soloist’s. Backing makes the difference between a good number and a great number! It will be our intention, once the audition process has been completed, to have an evening where we will ask everyone to come along, so that we can explain to you the format that we will be using for the show. Further information and dates for your diary will be sent to you. We look forward to seeing everybody soon to start work on what we believe will be a fabulous show. In the mean time we are still looking for other roles to be filled so if you are interested in Producer Set Construction Set Design Costumes Sound Continuity FOH Manager Please email us Gary and Ken garymcollis [email protected] co. uk kenwilliams [email protected] net Facilities Dressing Room Redecoration After completing the dressing Room the club decided the hallway outside required doing and this is happening at this time!!
