Amidst the gloom and doom of winter (and the occasional 65mph gust of wind and rain) we saw a production of Hansel and Gretel on Castle Green. The show was the brainwave of Beccy Armory (one of TTA’s founder members) who wrote directed and produced the piece.
Over 500 people enjoyed the show which was supported by a wider range of local organisations and individuals. Huge thanks to TDBC, Somerset Museum and the Knights Rest for helping us with the venue (and free food too!). Lights by Bright, Sound and staging by Liv’nUp. Dancing by the Nicky Jenks Dance School. The Stagecoach and Trull Primary School choir. Okoko’s Firestarter mix. Taunton Thespians, The Space and CiciCic for rehearsal space. Live music from Big Noise and Taunton Ukulele Strummers Club, the witches cottage animation by Alex Lovegrove. Zeralynx for print and ADK for posters and design work. Added to that a brilliant cast who enthralled us with the musical tale of Hansel and Gretel (who lived happily ever after of course). Not to forget over 30 volunteer stewards and 30 production support staff to keep the wheels going round.
We hope that if you came you enjoyed the show, we raised over £250 towards the theatre funds too!
