Well, the Epsom Light Opera Company’s magnificent and opulent production of Mame has closed. We pulled it off. And how. 😜

Successful and entertaining shows don’t just happen by default. The default is that they will be a ghastly waste of time. To be outstanding, EVERYONE has to give 100% of their time, talent, energy and devotion. The members of the Company, stage staff, lighting, props, orchestra – everyone – did this and the show WAS outstanding.

Comments made to me included superlatives like “superb”, “sublime entertainment” and “the most entertaining show I’ve seen this year”. I agree with these accolades and know that everyone thoroughly deserved them.

Every one brought something wonderful and unique to the show and, therefore, I am not going to single anyone out. So, well done all.

It remains in our collective memory. One day, we may do something similar again. It’s in our blood.

I salute you all as consummate artists!

All my love, James xxxx


Last night was the opening night of ELOC’s wonderful production of MAME at the Epsom Playhouse.

Paul Arden Griffith, the highly respected professional tenor, singing teacher and coach who was was the original Monsieur Reyer in Phantom and has sung everywhere, including Covent Garden, was in the audience and raved about it. He absolutely LOVED the show, and couldn’t praise it highly enough.

Another gentleman said he saw it in the West End and was “bored rigid but your production had me gripped the moment the curtain went up with that amazing street scene!”

What happens in that street?

It’s only on for this week! Rush to get your tickets NOW!!
