Here’s to Our Heroes hits the mark
I would like to share my feelings about Here’s to Our Heroes.
It really hit the mark. It dealt with the futility of war. Each scene was totally authentic.
And with the technology Talos now have, I felt the soldiers were standing behind the cast on the stage. Seeing real young men’s faces from 100 years ago captured on the stage was emotional indeed.
I really loved the knitting scene Knotting At The Knitting Club. During that scene I was imagining the thoughts and banter going on amongst the war time ladies.
The moods of the scenes reached out to the audience time and time again.
Director Fiona Miller is a “creative everything.”
I know that you search far and wide for ideas and songs and to find the wartime photos was the icing on the cake.
The talented Talos team you assembled for this show added the finishing touches to a very special Armistice musical tribute.
Working with the RSA helped to create the right feelings in the community. It’s good to see Talos reaching out in such a positive way.
I believe that Talos’ future is in good hands. You have talented producers, directors and a willing support base.
Jan and I drove back to Auckland feeling good as we spoke about “Here’s to Our Heroes.
