Much has happened since the last newsletter! I hope I have covered lots of little snippets of all the happenings and general goings-on. Apologies for the lack of articles, there’s just too much news!
Enjoy the read,
Victoria “Tod” Seals.
Well done to everybody involved with our production of Princess Ida 2012. I think we can all agree that it was a huge success! A special thanks to the very talented Martin Milnes, both for playing Hilarion so marvellously, and for his Pizza Night rendition of “Poor Wand’ring One”..... thats ‘one’ we won’t be forgetting for a while!
This year’s AGM was held on Tuesday 4th September.
We saw Fran Robson join the committee, Margaret Collingwood step down from the post of Secretary and Sue Norgate take up the challenge. We also saw 4 of our society members receive NODA Awards, and were honoured to welcome both Sue Du Pont and Jim Farr to present these awards.
Congratulations to Jim Barley, Pat Tegerdine, John Bill and our Chairman, Robin Richardson!
Congratulations to Sue Coleman (was Butcher) who married Mark on 8th September 2012. A Hen Party was held by some of the ENOS girls on the Wednesday before. I was not in attendance myself, but from the sounds of it, there was a lot of fun to be had....
particularly concerning some cringe worthy confectionary if my sources are to be believed!! Anyway, congratulations Sue, we all wish you and your husband much happiness in the future!
The Pirates of Penzance
Auditions for the principal roles of our May 2012 production, Pirates of Penzance, were held on 7th October 2012. The results are as follows:
We are delighted to have Margaret Collingwood as our Stage Director, with Eric James as Musical Director and Ros Swetman assisting as Chorus Mistress.
It’s not too late yet to come along and join the fun, and we are still in need of additions to our band of pirates, our force of policemen and our gaggle of giggling girls, so please come along to rehearsals. If you know anybody who you think would fit one of those categories, please send them along too!
Tickets are available for Pirates of Penzance from The Maddermarket Theatre, now via three different methods:
By visiting the Box Office at The Maddermarket Theatre, St. John’s Alley, NORWICH, NR2 1DR
By Phone: 01603 620917
Or by visiting their website http://www.maddermarket.co.uk and purchasing through their new online ticket system!
Please make sure to tell all your friends and family to come along!
All of us were very sorry to hear about the passing of Peter Coward earlier this year. A small note follows:
I would like to thank members of ENOS for their support and lovely singing at Peter's Thanksgiving Service in Horstead Church at the end of May.
Donations given in his memory were sent to the 'Sparks 4 Hearts' appeal and raised £817.40.
This will enable additional treatments to be done in the heart department of the N&N hospital instead of patients having to travel to Papworth.
A QUICK REMINDER TO ALL ENOS MEMBERS: SUBS ARE DUE, SO COULD ANYBODY WHO HASN’T PAID YET PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT THEY DO!
