Love has really been in the air this summer.
Congratulations to ALISON MATTHEWS who married her fiancé Andy in May in their beautiful home village of Long Clawson. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Savage!
Congratulations to SAMUEL TEBBATT who married his beautiful bride, Stephanie, in June! Congratulations Mr & Mrs Tebbatt!
And congratulations also to BECKY BAKEWELL who married her fiancé, Craig, at the lovely venue Abbots Oak in July. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Smith!
Josh Hill was originally cast in the leading role of Robbie Hart in The Wedding Singer. Unfortunately, following a nasty car accident he spent several weeks with his leg in a cast and was unable to continue with the part. However, that didn’t stop him from graduating from Nottingham Trent University and we also are delighted to report that he has recovered sufficiently to still join us on stage this week!
It is with much sadness that LAOS say goodbye to a loyal member and a supporter of ‘The Amateurs’. Jean Sharpe was a stalwart of the team that ensured the company was always fed and watered at rehearsal and also during show week. She retired from the role a few years ago but we all have fond memories of her, and her beloved husband Ted who graced the Loughborough stage for many years. Reunited now, rest in peace dear friend.
It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the passing of a long term LAOS supporter, George Moulton. Until very recently you would be greeted by George and his cheery disposition when arriving at the theatre. He was one of our dedicated and reliable ‘front of house’ volunteers and could always be depended on to be there come what may. A true gentleman, rest in peace George.
And it’s cast! Well done to all involved in the Wedding Singer auditions, this show is going to be awesome!
