SALE NOMADS THEATRE CLUB
Registered Charity No’: 1088204
Sale Nomads Theatre Club Established in 1946.
We are proud to be part of the Sale community and strive to produce a positive and entertaining experience for all who watch our productions.
For many many years the Nomads have been the team behind the ‘Sale Panto’ performed each January at the Waterside, Sale. Generations of families have been coming to boo, hiss and cheer at the colourful characters.
Our Studio Theatre presents plays from drama to comedy each season. Situated in central Sale we have the perfect location for audiences and members to attend.
LEND ME A TENOR OPENS IN:
I am honoured to be the current President of Sale Nomads.
As a member since 1981, I have had 40 years of friendship and laughs with this amazing society. I started as a dancer, but in true Nomad style and tradition, I have had the opportunity to do so many other things with the Club. From managing the accounts as Treasurer for 7 years to playing various parts in our award winning pantos.
Nomads is all about family and friendship, both of which I have found with the club. I met my husband Ross here and my daughter Megan is very much involved.
The last few years have impacted the Nomads greatly, not just 18+ months of Covid meaning we could not open our doors, do shows or gather together socially, but also in the fact, that we have lost so many of our beloved members to illness.
Cancer has touched so many of us over the years including my own family and for this reason I have chosen to support Maggies Centre in Manchester as the President’s Charity.
Maggie’s is a charity providing free cancer support and information in centres across the UK and online. They have Support Specialists, Psychologists and Benefits Advisors and it is a place where Cancer patients can share experiences with others in a similar situation. Both my sister in law Laura and I were privileged to visit the centre recently and were amazed at what a lovely calming environment it is with homely touches, a big kitchen table for chatting and beautiful gardens.
My aim is to raise as much as possible as £38 means an individual, couple or family can have a one-hour support session with a Psychologist, helping them address a complex range of issues. £150 pays for one day of money advice to support people to claim the grants and benefits they are entitled to. £282 provides cancer support sessions for up to 20 people to help them understand their diagnosis, treatment and life with cancer and £2,500 funds the centre for one whole day! It would be amazing if I could get close to funding the centre for 1 or 2 days.
I am hoping that a year of fund raising by Sales Nomads will be able to provide so much more for Maggie’s and I want to thank everyone for their efforts and donations in the year to come.
HONK! JR WAS A HUGE SUCCESS
Everyone in Nomads would like to express a huge congratulations to the Mini Nomads for their successful production of Honk! jr.
Despite everything that was thrown at them. Being postponed twice due to lockdowns and multiple cast members going into isolation over the last few months.Some cast even attended rehearsals via zoom.
The six performances were fantastic, even with 50% audience capacity the applause was loud and well deserved. Every member of cast and crew should be proud to have been part of this production.
I told the young cast at the dress rehearsal to enjoy every minute of it, make friends for life and make memories. For those of us who got to watch I promise we won’t forget this show, memories have been made for every generation.
The future of Nomads is looking very promising. This group has grown in confidence and the individual personalities are working together to overcome and achieve so much.
Neil McDonald, President 2019-2021.
