CATS and TOPCATS
Chairman: Trevor Bishop
President: Gordon Snead
Secretary: Dawn Tabram
Well, if there were any doubters as to whether Top Cats could pull off a fairly wordy production, they were mistaken!
With a colourful full on production with traditional Panto antics, Top Cats just showed what our youthful team of thespians can do, in fact this has to be their best production so far. With a full house on both shows, the atmosphere was electric.
The Star of the Show here has to be Dawn Tabram, their dedicated Director. Without Dawn’s vision and personal input to the show from early conception, this would have been a ‘non runner’. It would be so easy to just walk away when things just aren’t going to plan, (and they very often weren’t at rehearsals), but, walking away just isn’t in Dawn’s vocabulary.
So, a big ‘Thank You’ to all at team Top Cats for a memorable week end.
If you are interested in joining TopCATS and wish to be put on the waiting list, the name of child, contact number and DOB will be required. Please contact Dawn Tabram: 01440 707108
History of TopCATS
In Spring 2012 CATS asked a small group of 10 pupils from Castle Camps school to take part in their Queens Jubilee Show. This went down really well and it was suggested that a children's drama group was set up. In May 2012, Top Cats started with 19 members, most of which had been in the Queens Jubilee show. By September 2012 we were at full capacity with 22 members and a waiting list. Today we still have several members from that first show.
