We just keep getting better and better and that’s all down to teamwork!
In fond memory of former LAOS members:
Cedric Hewitt was one of our resident jokers, he could always be relied on to get you chuckling. In our production of THE NEW MOON one cast member couldn’t remember an entrance, so he asked Ced who said “It’s now!” so on he went. I have to say the two actors on stage singing a duet at the spinet did look rather surprised! That was Ced all over, he will be remembered with fondness by his many friends at LAOS and sadly missed by us all.
It is with much sadness that we advise you that Barry Pollard passed away on 26th January. He was a loyal member of LAOS for many years; he always shone brightly when treading the boards here at the Town Hall, ever the entertainer. He will be sadly missed. Sincerest condolences to his family and friends. RIP Barry.
Congratulations to everyone who auditioned, the standard as always was very high and you should all be proud of yourselves.
