Thespians Anonymous Theatrical Society has come a long way since when it was established in 1999. We will continue to strive towards impressing you with new endeavours in the future – starting with this blog.

2011 was an awesome year for TA. We put on a lively musical revue, a popular production of Orwell’s 1984 and a fun collection of short plays. This amounts to a total of:

  • over 1000 audience members;
  • 59 cast;
  • 24 crew;
  • 7 directors.

Not too shabby for an amateur theatre group performing in a foreign language.

What else has happened over the last 10+ years? To start with, 31 productions were staged. Yes, we counted. Furthermore, we witnessed a transition from “we do it for friends & family” attitude to seizing the opportunity and addressing a wider audience.

We thought it’s time we shared our experiences. With yet another exciting year ahead of TA, this blog is our new conquest – introducing a new way of communicating with you. What we do is a gift back to the community we live in. Join us in building on this momentum. Together let’s become more popular, fill thousands of seats, maybe even go on tour…

Come back to read about what our productions and other theatre related activities entail – from backstage, individual actors’ experiences, costumes/make-up, set building to directing and creative writing, and much more. With that many post ideas, our blog will be cracking at the seams.

We do it out of heart, for you.

It’s show time!

    31 productions, wow! I’m so much looking forward to following this blog about the exploits and triumphs of my fellow Thespians. 🙂 Please do some more counting… those numbers are fascinating. For example, is there a tally of how many members in total TA has had over its years in the business?

    This blog is a great idea! As an “oldie” I like Diana’s idea of numbers, they are always fascinating 🙂 I also think this will be a great way to document productions and remember them later on. And, it’s always great to see TA living and breathing with new, talented and ambitious members.
