Hugh MacKay – joining us for our November Show

We have a new pianist – Hugh Mackay!

We are lucky enough to have drafted our old friend Hugh Mackay to help us with the piano rehearsals for our Old Time Music Hall show for November 2016. We have worked with him many times before; he is a very experienced pianist and will make a massive difference to our rehearsals.  Hugh will be joining us on our fihughrst Thursday rehearsal on 27th October.  I’m sure you’ll all join with me in welcoming Hugh back to our family!

Kim Wilcox

Hi, my name is Kim and I first joined CMT for 'Anything Goes' in 1999. Since then I've learned many more things than I ever did at school! I've co-written and co-directed 'When We Were Young', 'Tribute' and 'All Kinds of Everything', and been assistant director for 'Cowardy Custard', I've performed in countless shows and painted more scenery than I care to mention. I've sewn what seems like miles of curtaining, mended an elephants trunk (!) made 22 gymslips and 2 Beefeater costumes for stilt-walkers, made props galore and designed scenery for many shows. I've also helped out with scenery painting for other theatre groups as well. I've recently written a musical show which I'm hoping to showcase with CMT at some point. I also won a NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) award for the Best Programme with 'Hello Dolly' and runner-up for 'Oklahoma'. I'd say if you're looking for something different to do with your evenings rather than watch TV, amateur theatre is a marvellous place to do it. Take the plunge, you'll meet lots of new friends and learn new skills. And you don't need to be on the stage to enjoy yourself, there's plenty of other things to do. Come on, join us today!
