What we do: the club books seats and arranges coach transport for members and guests to attend plays and concerts, starting from Kingsbridge in Devon. The planned events are listed in programmes issued about four times a year. The venues are mainly in Plymouth, Torbay and Exeter but we occasionally travel much further afield. See more at About Us.

NEWSLETTER 3, May 2017  (posted 4 May 2017)
Dear SHTCC Member/s,

Please find here our new programme which I hope you will enjoy and find some shows which take your fancy. Those of you who have requested more matinées will be pleased to see that there are four in this programme!

Please note that 'Crazy for You' which stars Tom Chambers and Caroline Flack (both featured on 'Strictly Come Dancing') is on 'a short booking fuse' and has a club deadline of 21st June. Also you will see some interesting plays: Ninagawa Macbeth and Hedda Gabler which has had rave reviews at the National Theatre. 'A Judgement in Stone' is a new production adapted from one of the most celebrated works of Ruth Rendell and I've booked it in the afternoon for a late summer treat, lunch and a stroll in the Torbay sunshine before the who dunnit! Please support these productions. Don't let recycled musicals take over the world!!

A reminder that 'Thoroughly Modern Millie' which will be playing at the Bristol Hippodrome 23rd June, 2017 can be booked through Tally Ho! Holidays and SHTCC members receive £10 discount.

In February a group of us went to the Cottage Hotel, Hope Cove to celebrate Jo Farrell's 10 year stint as Ticket Secretary and to acknowledge her dedication and commitment to the club. It was a surprise lunch, which also happened to coincide with Jo's big birthday. Jo was presented with a card and a TRP gift Token which she was delighted with. Jo asked me to thank all those who donated to the gift and card and who sent their good wishes.

The Club's Annual General Meeting went well and the officers for 2017 were duly elected, accounts approved and simplified subscriptions of £10 per address were voted on and approved and will come into force in 2018. The minutes of the AGM are on the About Us page (Management section). There was a fair amount of discussion regarding longer distance events and some useful ideas have come forward which we are investigating. Our guest Brenda Loosemore, who is of the local amateur stage and has played various great comedy parts, gave a talk entitled 'Ladies of Laughter' which was quite hilarious. Because of the positive response we have re-booked her so that she can present more of her talk at our next AGM

I recently did an e-rnall poll to see what interest there was in a London theatre trip in October. 15 members showed interest for a trip in early October which doesn't appear enough to be viable. If you would be interested in going please drop me a line.

Also of special note is the recently announced RSC's Matilda tour next year. The nearest venue to us is Cardiff and Hilary of Tally Ho! and I have come up with a trip there on the 10/11 December, 2018. Please see here for more information/booking slip.

Last but not least Gill White has enclosed a form for you to complete and return to her to ensure that all our membership records are current. Thanks for you cooperation.

Best wishes,

Nick Alen
