Dear all,

Thank you for joining the NTMM mailing list, which we will send to you once or twice a month, keeping you abreast with performances by the group, as well as performances by the individual members.Our recent run at ON BROADWAY,GREENPOINT, was sold out pretty much from day one and was that venue's most successful production to date.Thanks to those who supported us , and to those who didnt, dont worry, we'll be back!!

Outside of a few corporate gigs we will not be performing together till the ''live CD recordings'' in February 2002, tickets to this event will be available in the new year, but more of that in future newsletters, here are some dates to keep in mind for the immediate future.


Tina Schouw and Christine Weir join forces in an exciting new production LUNAR TUNES, which is presented in association with the TWO OCEANS AQUARIUM. Christine and Tina, long branded lunatics, have decided to come clean and honour their madness in a magical, mystical, musical tribute to sister moon.Joining them on their journey is the high priestess of the keyboard, Amanda Tiffin, and her hand-maiden Miranda Basset on cello.

LUNAR TUNES promises to enchant audiences with stories and songs,set against the ''backing chorus'' of ragged tooth sharks, sting-rays, turtles and fish which glide and cavort in the I&J predator exhibit.

The show has a limited run of TEN DAYS ONLY, from 9th to 11th, and 17th -23rd December. Booking essential. Tickets are available from the TWO OCEANS AQUARIUM: call (021)418-3823 for further details.


Catch Tina Schouw with the Andrew Lilley Quartet At 0932 Somerset Road,Greenpoint on December 2nd from 19h00- 22h00. A wonderful repetoire of jazz.


From time to time members of the mass take part in other companies productions, you can catch Christine Weir doing the Shakespeare thing at the annual Mynardville production, this years offering is A Midsummer- nights dream and Christine will be cavorting around as one of the rude mechanicals!!

Not The Midnight Mass welcome on board a new recruit, baritone Donal Slemon will be appearing with the group for the live recordings.


We still have a limited amount of these CD's available, selling at R50, plus postage, they can be obtained by writing to us at the above email address, for information regarding earlier recordings by NTMM as well as Tina's solo album, visit John Samsons' fan website listed below.
