Jon is not only the ‘Dorian Gray’ of the group he is also a great singer and comedy actor well renowned for his dodgy French accent and his uncanny ability to play men with ..er… an alternative lifestyle! Jon is not that way inclined at all but he’s certainly in touch with his feminine side! Jon is also good at set painting.

Allison Taylor

The other half of the ‘Allies’ team, Allison also keeps everyone giggling during performances and beyond!

Jo Pavey

Jo is not only a great actress, she has directed some short plays AND she has managed and provided catering at most of the Cabaret evenings and other events.

John Dorsett

John is a great actor (sometimes with a hint of John Cleese) having played Inspector Pratt with people falling about with laughter, and a musician with a variety of great musical pieces from George Formby to Harry Belafonte and beyond

P Ebling

P is a great coordinator and stage manager and says she’s NEVER going on stage – but might do a River Dance one day!

George Traer-Clark

George came along to help backstage and is NEVER going on stage – except he’s now played a roman senator and heading towards a WWII soldier and.. and.. and…..!

Ruth Ellam

Ruth is the pianist and accompanist for TAP and the choral section; she has a great voice but refuses to sing in front of an audience!
