Get your kicks

Friend and supporter of Tagora, M. Soul, relaunches his show “Blue Suède Shoes – Les origines du rock ’n’ roll de 1946 à 1959” His five-piece band will revisit the hits of seminal performers such as Louis Jordan, Fats Domino and Chuck Berry. If you’re a fan of the era, you’ll want to be there; and if you’re not a fan – you will be by the end of the show! Forthcoming appearances: 25 March in Colmar and 23 April in Monswiller. For times, details Continue reading →

Oyez, oyez! Update!

Calling all Tagorans! Meeting documents are now available for the “two for the price of one” AGM. Click the Continue reading link below. The time has come (and indeed gone as regards 2021), for us to hold an Annual General Meeting.  Since we failed to hold one in 2021 (we can blame it on COVID!), we will need to hold our AGM to for 2021 and for 2022.  The Committee has decided to hold this double AGM on Thursday 3 March, at 18:00, via Zoom.

And for our next show…

Well, what? The suggestion box is open. There are a few ideas circulating, but nothing is decided. And we need to plan for the future.

The Committee would welcome any proposal from those of you willing to direct a play! We are happy to consider any ideas, long plays, short plays, original scripts, etc., provided Continue reading →

The other RADA

Tagora members who attended our AGM will remember that we discussed the possibility of “staging” performances online, using Zoom or similar applications. Well, great minds think alike; and the Riviera Amateur Dramatic Association (the other RADA, geddit?) is offering an online production of Lysistrata by Aristophanes. Continue reading →

We’ll meet again…

… but for the moment, Covid oblige, it will be online. Tagora’s annual general meeting will take place on Sunday 22 November at 11.00. It’s a chance to review past activities and to look forward to the future. And also to elect the new committee (for which nominations are invited). The meeting will be held by Zoom. You will need a computer or a telephone. A camera is useful, but not essential. If you want to attend, please e-mail in advance of the meeting. Continue reading →

Uncertain times

We announced in June Tagora’s plans to stage the Merchant of Venice towards the end of 2021. However, in these uncertain times it is becoming clear that it is impractical to continue planning for a such a production. Restrictions on gathering together in large groups, and on access to rehearsal spaces, look as if they will continue for some time. As an alternative, we propose to work on a revue inspired by aspects of Shakespearean theatre – past, present or future. The show should, in Continue reading →
