Bampton, Sue White: please would you say how much I enjoyed the WW1 'show'. I thought
Steve Thomason's song made an excellent thread to weave through it, the visuals on
the screen were stunning and the variety of material made for a real 'emotional rollercoaster'.
Congratulations to everyone involved. I would definitely come & see it again.
Morchard Bishop, Michael O’Brien: ‘The War to End All Wars’ was lovingly staged.
For a group of so-called ‘amateurs’, individual performances throughout were of a
much higher standard than anticipated. The cast played their respective roles ably
and with conviction. The outstanding feature, though, was the imaginative and sensitive
use of slide-projection throughout, which truly enhanced the production. Pennymoor
Singaround are to be congratulated for striking just the right balance in the portrayal
of events and for creating such a moving and memorable evening.
Knightshayes, Linda Wear: Really enjoyed Saturday night. Well done on the careful
and interesting research and getting the programme together. I thought people did
really well and some performances were memorable. Lovely to hear some old and new
Hanlons, John Andrews: Pie & Pint night: goodness me, what a brilliant night! OK,
a wee bit sad, but so cleverly and skillfully done. Brilliant.
Chittlehampton, Carol H-Begg: Please thank everyone for a truly wonderful presentation
which was discussed at great length at the coffee morning yesterday and at Chapel
today. Everyone was so complimentary. The song of 'Lady of the Night' shone a new
light on that profession as comforters and a way of escape from the horrors of war
that some had not realised before! The images were a show in themselves, and so
appropriate. How all those pictures were found is amazing. I look forward to seeing
it again, I hope, when it comes to Bideford, and take in all the bits I missed this
time, as there was much to contemplate.
Topsham, Leith & Sandie Whittington: Just a note to say how much we enjoyed the WW1
show in Topsham. It was a very sensitive and moving presentation in the context of
the local population, with a good selection of songs and readings that told a complete
story. Beautifully done! We shall certainly recommend to our friends.
