It is with a heavy heart that I watch theatres dark, shows close and friends and colleagues struggle to maintain a positive mindset.
Our summer show at the Westcliff theatre, Clacton on Sea was cancelled for 2020.
Our Spring 2020 tour of Timeless Theatres new UK Touring Production "All Our Yesterdays" has now been postponed for a second time. We are hoping to go ahead in Spring of 2021.
I was lucky enough to work on a socially distanced Christmas Show for the Westcliff Theatre, Clacton on Sea in December. It was incredibly emotional to be back in a rehearsal room with real live talent. We created a fully Covid safe show both on and off stage and it was an absolute joy to be a part of. We managed to rehearse and complete the full run of the production whilst the local area remained in tier 2.
On a personal note, last summer I created this with some of the talented dancers I have been lucky enough to work with. We all needed a creative outlet.
Thursford Christmas Spectacular
The 2019 production was an absolute joy to work on!
Here is a quote from our five star review in The Stage.
"The scale and symmetry of Tracey Iliffe’s choreography is mesmerising, utilising the inordinately long stage to create a meticulous chorus-line of statuesque showgirls, toy soldiers or two-dozen Charlie Chaplins gracefully clowning along to Smile."
I was very saddened that the 2020 production of our wonderful show had to be postponed to 2021. I hope that this year we will be able to bring our unique brand of Christmas joy back to audiences.
