The latest production from MAD our very own Church Minshull Drama Group joining forces with our Community 'Carry on Singing' group produced a fabulous Old Time Music Hall in Church Minshull Village Hall over the last 3 nights.

It was a Marvellous... Masterly... Melifluous... Melange, of Indordinately... Interesting... Interlocutionary... Impishness, in a Thrilling... Threnody of Rapturous...Rippling... Rumbustiousness — as our Master of Ceremonies, John Headon would tell us as he took us seamlessly through the many varied acts.

It was such a good fun, feel good evening of entertainment produced and directed by John Headon, Musical Director Sandra Wallis, and supported by an excellent backstage staff on stage, lighting props etc.

There was something for everyone — songs, comedy, speciality acts, and a wonderful melodrama from the MAD group featuring a splendid Faye Hough as juvenile lead and an excellent cast of players — love a good melodrama, something from the Victorian era, and such good fun.

There was lots of audience participation — and a nostalgic moment for me, taking me back to the guiding days of my youth — Going on a Bear Hunt with Tim Hough, the whole audience joined in, slapping their thighs and entering into the spirit of this Camp Fire, Jamboree Song.

It was really pleasing to see two young up and coming actors — Naomi Lakin and Harriet Carss, each performing monologues and a sketch beautifully.

The choir started and finished the evening, with wonderful accompaniment from our three musicians on piano. We all rose to the fabulous rendition of Land of Hope and Glory which was the climax of the show.

Many congratulations to all involved in this excellent performance and huge thanks from the community for a Great Night Out.
