TOPS and the Corona Virus
TOPS Update January 2021
A very belated Happy New Year to all our friends, patrons and supporters in the local community.
Let’s hope for an increasingly brighter and safer year ahead.
Well, we’re still here; sort of!
We had hoped that we would have been planning and preparing for a spring production.
But like our plans for last spring and indeed the autumn, we have had to postpone those plans yet again. As a result, the good ladies from the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society will not be presenting their murder mystery; at least for now.
The current challenges make it very difficult to plan ahead with any confidence.
Drama productions require so much close activity in rehearsals and set building and so forth that we cannot predict when we’ll be back.
And of course, our venue the Village Hall, remains closed to us at present.
Given all the uncertainties, autumn is the earliest we could begin to contemplate a new production; but frankly, even that would be a push – unless of course, things really do change dramatically in the months ahead and everyone begins to get their confidence back for getting out there!
Anyway, all that said, TOPS plans to keep going and be ready for when things do allow a return to whatever normality emerges.
We are always on the lookout for new talent in all departments, from backstage to front of house and everything in between (including treading the boards of course).
There are lots of opportunities for anyone with an interest in drama, theatre and the creative arts to develop and apply new skills.
And you’ll have fun and make new friends.
TOPS…. An Active and Entertaining Group!
