About us

We're Cassie & Selwyn Tillett. We have been enthusiastic supporters of the Sewell Barn Theatre since shortly after our arrival in Norfolk in 2005. Cassie has performed in several shows there (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Come Back to the Five & Dime Jimmy Dean, Noises Off and The Merry Wives of Windsor), and together we directed The Shakespeare Revue and Down Among the Wines & Spirits (which we also created).

As well as our enthusiasm for 'plays' in the more conventional sense, we have been keen to share our experience, and love, of the worlds of music, variety and entertainment. Selwyn is an accompanist with over forty years' experience who has worked with many amateur, professional and semi-professional singers, covering every style from opera and operetta, burlesque to variety, musical comedy to lieder and much more. Our work during our days in South London with Chimes Musical Theatre, and latterly in Norfolk with Vocal Score, has been our greatest joy: concerts crafted to a high standard for the benefit of local charities and good causes. The creation of entire lives and stories within one brief snapshot, lasting no more than a few minutes, whether spoken or sung, is a highly valuable and often neglected skill.

After the success of Down Among the Wines & Spirits - themed on the days of the Golden Age of the Music Hall - we are delighted to have been asked to continue to bring musical entertainment to the wonderful intimate atmosphere of the Sewell Barn, and to be paying homage to one of the giants of twentieth century theatre.
