Producers Update

 Great work last night - I already sense that some songs are going to give us tingles! You are all putting so much effort (and time) into getting everything right - thank you. We owe it to our audiences to be entertaining, so remember to capture the mood of each piece in your singing and facial expressions - I know some of you find it easier than others to look relaxed, but it really does help to get our audience on-side. Listen to each other, blend and enjoy each song.

 

 Wednesday 20th June - Get in at Stahl 2pm. If you are free to help move staging from our store to the Stahl and/or construct, please let Paul E. know, especially if you are going to the Ship for lunch first. 

Our rehearsal is in the Stahl that evening at 7pm.
