Musical of Musicals - The Musical!
Adams has appeared in many of the Society's shows over the past decade, including
The Pajama Game, Fiddler on the Roof, Me and My Girl, The
Baker's Wife and Blitz!. David is also a founder member of the St Martin's
Adams has worked with many groups in the South London and Kent area, performing
in musicals, plays, and music hall. Recent musical leads include Me and My
Girl, Witches of Eastwick, Broadway Pirates, The King and
I, Return to the Forbidden Planet and A Little Night Music.
Arden is his second production with the TEPOS Music Box, having performed
with many company members in various other productions over the years. He now
relishes the character opportunities that the more mature roles provide, particular
favourites being Tevye (Fiddler on the Roof) and Emile (South Pacific).
Chris is delighted to be back home at the BHT, where he appeared in three productions
last year, including Return to the Forbidden Planet and Hot Mikado.|
Barnett made his TEPOS Music Box debut last year in Act Your Age, having
spent many an enjoyable year playing in light comedies and pantomimes with St
Martin's Players; having now played in a proper theatre, Dave signed up again
- little realising how busy chorus could be. |
Cahill has been involved in musical theatre for as long as she can remember,
with her first lead being Yum Yum (The Mikado) at eleven years old. Solo
roles have included Chava (Fiddler on the Roof) and Kate (Titanic!),
as well as numerous dancing and chorus roles. Ruth regularly performs Gilbert
& Sullivan at Hever Theatre.|
Cooper is a musician and teacher and is pleased to be joining TEPOS Music
Box on stage once again. Previous stage roles include Bill (Hand of Bridge),
Frederic (Pirates of Penzance), Mr Wells (The Sorcerer), Satyavan
(Savitri), Box (Cox and Box), Dominique (The Baker's Wife)
and Man 1 (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change).|
Coleman has performed with the Society for fifteen years. This summer she
was lucky enough to perform on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in I Love You,
You're Perfect, Now Change (Woolwich Tramshed), but nothing beats the chance
to play both an airhead and a self-centred diva in the same show! |
Cummings-Cove joined TEPOS Music Box last year to play Mrs Singh in Blitz!.
It has been hugely enjoyable working with such a talented cast for this show and
Sarah would like to thank the production team for casting her as a 'slutty dancing
girl' which is a slight improvement on last year's ageing courtesan for Eldorado
Mitchell - after some concern about the variety of tarts she has played ub
recent TEPOS Music Box shows, added to increasing alarm about the decreasing size
of her costumes, culminating in only a shared towel last year, Carol is pleased
to be fully clad for most of this show. No fun, eh?!|
Pinel enjoys singing five musical styles all in one show - it saves the effort
of doing each individually! She is, however, worried about typecasting in Sheila's
productions, having played a 'niece' with dubious morals in The Baker's Wife
and now a rent-dodging cabaret dancer... |
Scambler is in his first show with TESPO Music Box, having previously starred
with Phoenix Players, Quay Players, Centenary Company and just about anyone else
willing to provide entertainment on a weekday evening. Needless to say, Tom was
naturally suited to the part of 'Big Willy'
. having previously payed
a cowboy in a Phoenix panto!|
Templeton - Meine Damen und Herren. Wilkommen zum Speakeasy und unsere produktion
von Musical of Musicals. After thirty years of being in or working on 'normal'
musicals, the Creepy Landlord hopes you enjoy the different styles visited in
this one show. Es ist gut, jah? |
Templeton first trod the boards 42 years ago (she was very young!!). During
this time Jackie has either performed on stage or worked back stage with most
local societies and theatre groups. Enjoy trying to spot the numerous show references;
Terry feared that she would be type-cast as an 'old fogey' following her more
recent roles in the Society's productions (The Baker's Wife, Blitz!
and Act Your Age) so this year has decided to play against type (lost of
costume changes and no comfy shoes).|
Whiting - Aaaaaaaaaaargh! |
[Those who know Eric, will know him to be
a man of few words ..... - the Web Master.]
Walker has been taking part in shows with local societies for many years.
This show has been so much fun and a challenge in lots of different ways but perhaps
most particularly with the costuming!! Five shows for the price of one and five
very quick costume changes! Here's hoping Rose chooses the right costume each
Wootton is appearing in his sixth show with the Society.|
Wootton joined the Society in 1978, after ten years in Cabaret, and is now
in her 32nd show with us. Previous roles include Nancy (Oliver!), Tzeitel
(Fiddler on the Roof), Ruth (The Pirates of Penzance), Lizzie Stride
(Jack the Ripper), Mrs Pearce (My Fair Lady), Nettie (Carousel),
Denise (The Baker's Wife), and many others.|
Arden (Director) - After many years as a performer, Sheila turned to directing
21 years ago. She sees it as a happy combination of her profession (school teacher)
and the many roles she has taken - both onstage and backstage - over the years!
Shows Sheila has directed include The Baker's Wife, Blitz!
(for TEPOS Music Box), Brigadoon, Camelot, Kiss Me Kate,
Annie Get Your Gun and King and I (Churchill Theatre); Fiddler
on the Roof, South Pacific, Oklahoma!, Me and My Girl,
Guys and Dolls (Lewisham Theatre); The Matchgirls, Sweet Charity
(co-directed), Cabaret, On The Town, Annie, Chess,
Hot Mikado (Bob Hope Theatre); A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to
the Forum, The Music Man (The Stag Theatre).
Sheila is delighted
to be back with TEPOS Music Box - almost high-jacked by a fall on the ice
and a badly fractured arm. This is Sheila's first show directed with one arm!
Sheila wishes to pass on her thanks to all those who helped and supported throughout,
Thompson (Musical director) is a native of Jarrow but came south at
an early age; having decided to make a career out of music, he hasn't been able
to afford the journey back! Alan spent 28 years with the Royal Artillery Band,
where he played the piano, 'cello and clarinet (not all at the same time!), and
has been MD of every TEPOS show since 1971. He classes himself as a 'musical navvy'
and will turn his hand to most things - all offers gratefully received!|
