Hi all, please remember that we are having a "after show party" tonight (11th January) so remember your food. Looking forward to seeing you all.
Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood commenced last night (10th January) and it was magical from stage, back stage staff and helpers. The night produced very good comments from the audience which thrilled us all. DON'T FORGET TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE FOR Friday 11th, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th (get in soon before its too late, Sunday nearly sold out!!!!!!!! If you miss it Robin Hood will not be happy, oh no he won't. See you then!!!!!!!!!!
Please note anyone visiting performances for Robin Hood and the Babea in the Wood, bring extra money as ice creaam will be sold - a new addition to the society; as well as the usual tea, coffee, soft drinks, wine and beer.
The murder mystery evening took place on the 10th November. Better attendance than last year and all who attended thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks to Jan Boothroyd for an enjoyable evening and to the cast. Hopefully better attendance next year.
Christine Hulley continues to offer tap dancing lessons, which many of the society members have enjoyed and found beneficial. They are held at the St Francis Scout Centre in Heaton (on the corner of Teesdale Gardens and Cragside).
A very successful event where we performed songs from Kiss me Kate, Annie, High society, Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady, Chicago, 7 brides for 7 brothers and the Sound of Music. Produced by Alan Tomkins and Ann Ranson we performed to packed houses on both the Friday and the Monday evening. We were pleased to have our NODA National President Fred Piggford at our Monday evening performance.
After a very successful “Musical Showcase” we had great pleasure in welcoming Jim Graham to our society whereby he presented medals to members on the night. Photographs were taken of each presentation and also a group photo of society members who had been awarded medals on this and previous occasions.
