Here’s to Our Heroes hits the mark

Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

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.
