With the Borough Theatre temporarily closed plans for a special production commemorating V E Day have been put on hold,
However the cast decided they would not let the anniversary pass unmarked so have recorded a special medley of some of the classic hits they were due to have been performing at the theatre this week.
You can see the film on the theatre’s Facebook page along with a specially recorded version of We’ll Meet Again.
“Our show ‘From Saucepans to Spitfires’ was supposed to open at the theatre this week but instead we are all in lockdown,” said A4B chairman Liz Davies.
“We’ve all been chatting online and holding our monthly A4B meetings via Zoom so we decided to be brave and try our hands with some modern technology to record this World War II medley. Fortunately most of the cast are quite young so it has actually worked!
“It’s been a lovely collaboration between the socially distanced cast, our musical director Sarah Fowler, local musician Andrew Hopkins and the Borough Theatre’s manager Dave Baxter, who has brought his technical wizardry to bear to edit all the individual videos,” said Liz
With Abergavenny Theatre Group and AAODS already having postponed their spring productions the video comes as a timely reminder that the theatre community in Abergavenny is alive and well with many local performers gaining fans with their regular Facebook performances.
