Director's Note

Well, what a time we've had in the past 12 weeks at rehearsals. Tears, tantrums. . . and that's jus the director. But Seriously, the last time the Masque Players of Kesgrave performed a Music Hall was in the 70's. Well, I'm thrilled to say, they're back!

"100 Years Of Entertainmant" will take you through a journey of 'Old Time' in the park. 'War Time' village hall cheer, 50's Rock & Roll and right up to the minute with songs from Les Miserables. In between these chorus sections are a variety of sketches, songs and indescribable events... that have to be seen to be believed.

I feel hounoured to have been given the opportunity to direct sucha talented group of people (both in front and behind the curtains) who have put their heart and soul into this show. From the bottom of my heart I thank them for their ongoing commitment and I thank you for attending - which is what it's all about.

I hope that you agree with me that there is something for everyonein this Autumn's show and,like me, you may leave the hall wondering why this talented group haven't done this sooner. Sit back. relax and enjoy.
