RAFFLE – to raise funds for ‘Oliver!’

A big THANKYOU from Joyce Davies and the Trinity Players to all of you who so generously donated prizes for the ‘Oliver!’ Raffle.

Friday 21 February 2014

“Please Sir  . . .

As members of the packed audience of Thursday night’s very adventurous performance of Lionel Bart’s ‘Oliver!’, my wife and I want to say a big thankyou to all 42 stars (and not a celebrity in sight) of the cast and choruses, supported by an additional 15 crew members of the Trinity Players, under the Direction of Ruth Parker.  As we have come to expect, over the years, the whole experience was outstanding.

We were transported back to the East End of London in 1850 thanks to the high quality of acting and singing, the period costumes by Sylvia Inglis, effective make-up, scenery, sound effects and lighting cued in by Michael and Stephen Austin. Appropriate moods were created in the 12 scenes by the piano accompaniments, so ably played by Musical Director, Walter Ashcroft in the tradition of the old black & white silent movies!  It would be impossible to single out an individual, however, special credit must be given to young Emma Guenther who played Oliver Twist, Sarah Grady as the Artful Dodger, Jennifer Ashcroft as Nancy, Stuart Priestley as Bill Sykes and Chris Mangham as a very believable Fagin.  Watch your pockets in future!  Commendably the East End accents in verse and song were well maintained throughout.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that the very reasonably priced £7.50 tickets included a programme and refreshments. The evening was rounded off very well when my wife won a prize in the raffle (a first for her).  Congratulations and well done everybody!

The four performances were dedicated in tribute to Diane Inglis, a much loved member of Trinity United Reformed Church, who sadly passed away in December.

For those attending tonight and on Saturday we can only say you are in for a real treat; we sang all the way home and we can only add

. . . can I have some more!”

Greg & Pam

With support from all the cast the show will be dedicated to the memory of Diane Inglis.

Being Oliver’s and the little pickpocket’s grandparents, it is obvious that we enjoyed the show enormously – but we would like to say that we think everybody did a wonderful job! This is real community life for old and young, extremely good youth work, good fun (and lots of work) for staff, players, everybody who helped - and the audience! We hope, people all around will follow your example!

Best wishes for all of you!
