Performances of "Smile Smile Smile" are dedicated to the memory of one of our most loyal, long-standing and dear members - William (Bill) Pond. Bill passed away in June of this year after a short illness. He was a stage manager for our last production in May, and would have enjoyed working with members on this; our Great War review. Bill's experience, wisdom and sense of humour are greatly missed.
On behalf of myself, Jenny Heald and Paul Sanderson I would like to thank you for attending this performance of "Smile, Smile, Smile". From the first discussions about the possibility of producing a WWI review show, it has been both heartening and humbling to see the commitment and determination given by everyone at CADS to produce a show that had something worthwhile to contribute to the rememberances taking place in this 100th anniversary year. We have pulled together 3 plays which look at very different aspects of WWI, but which combine to tell a narrative tale, taking the audience on a journey from 1914 until the present day. We look at the effects of the Great War not only on those who served, but also on their families and descendants. We hope that our show will be informative and thought provoking but most of all entertaining. Kind regards, Liz Brooks
