Mini Nomads are excited to announce that their next production is Spamalot! They will be performing this in July 2022 so keep your eyes peeled for tickets.

The group was put together to celebrate Nomads turning 70. It was set up for the kids to make their decisions about shows, plays, workshops and all aspects of the shows. It is their group and the A Team are there just to make it happen.

Kay Valentine came up with the idea to perform the 12days of Christmas for the annual Nomads Cabaret, She started with 8 children and Adam Garnett joined her for the first full production of Jungle Book and before long Mini’s was born and has since gone from strength to strength, performing a full musical every year since. The Minis now enjoys 30 children who get together every week to learn all kinds of theatre skills including singing, dancing, acting, stage craft as well as learning all the ‘behind the scenes’ jobs which is takes to put a show together. As Minis grew, Sandie Cowle and Ian Moore came on board to assist in the admin side of things and the A’Team was formed. All 4 members get involved in all aspects of the Minis sessions including stage management, set design, props and pretty much everything else that needs to happen to ensure the kids enjoyment and safety.

We love our Sundays, we love our Mini’s.

Honk! jr re-opened Nomads in style after the restrictions.

What a fantastic way to show the community of Sale that we are here to stay. The talent of our minis is the future everyone will get to see entertaining them for years to come.

Well done to all the cast and crew. We can’t wait to see what show you smash next year.


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.
