March 26th 2012 - Tudor MCS has received some great feedback about our latest production Lights! Camera! Action! its run on Saturday night. Here's what just one audience member had to say:

"Well done Tim Harding, Paula Waldron, Pam & James Garrington, one and all. Especially remembering Mr Alan Waldron's  impeccable intros, Paul Lumsden gleefully accosting your punters(!), Eliza Harris and Charlie Helena Gaunt's Sunset 'turn', and Paul and Rachel J Clarke's Ragtime duet. Finally little Alice Leach singing Whistle down the Wind, which was truly magical. ;-)"
