Just a Few Words (and Songs!) : 8 - 10 June 2006

Show raises £1,640 for Willen Hospice

The TATS variety show Just a Few Words (and Songs!) - was a huge success, playing to packed houses and raising £1,640 for Willen Hospice.

The show, which ran for three nights in June, was a tribute to TATS stalwart Doug Dunkley, who sadly died last year. Doug's son, Chris, worked hard behind the scenes as well as playing a leading part on stage.

Doug's widow, Mary, said she and her family would like to thank everyone involved in the show for their great support. And TATS chairman John Murray said "It is, I think, a testament to the affection that people had for Doug that so many wanted to take part in this show." (Just a Few Words may well now hold the TATS record for the greatest number of participants!)

The production featured popular songs from the shows as well as classic sketches and readings. Musicals featured included Salad Days (one of Doug's favourites), Carousel, West Side Story and Oklahoma! TATS youth members performed medleys from Oliver and Grease.
