Working For Adderbury Community: Heard it all before – this time it’s for real.

At the well attended meeting the group adopted their constitution and elected trustees Andy Green (Chair), Jackie Head (Vice-Chair), Kate Gibbins (Secretary), Pam Haynes (Treasurer) and from Adderbury Parish Council Councillors Keith Mitchell, Martin Rye and Chris Shallis.

The group is now calling for other interested villagers to get involved and help create the vision.

Review of Adderbury Theatre Workshop Variety Show

We weren’t quite sure what to expect from ATW’s latest offering at The Institute. Billed as a Variety Show – was it the anticipated cabaret of all the old sketches to celebrate their 40th anniversary? –certainly the rather thin Friday audience was seated in cabaret style
Well we certainly got variety! I counted 18 separate turns put together by director Jamie Cox, whose energy and effort in pulling this all together in just four weeks in our time-poor life was a remarkable achievement.

As ever with such a mix we had some great hits and some serious misses, with a lot of the new stuff let down by poor scripts, and surprisingly for ATW, a complete lack of topicality and local colour. The evening was held together by the wonderful Gary Leonardi as our MC and stand-up comic, but even he struggled to get the laughs, and on Friday was bailed out by the lugubrious Justin O’Toole coming out of the audience to tell the lovely balloon joke.
