Sunday 8th July 2007

Open day at the Mews

The day went well with a steady stream of visitors, members old and new. Refreshments were available and people had fun trying to identify themselves and others amongst the display of photographs of shows past on the rehearsal floor (many thanks to Paul) and there was a slide show on the computer of more recent productions. it has been decided to leave the pictures on the walls for the time being at least until floor rehearsals start for Cinderella so that those members who couldn't get along and any new prospective members can have a chance to see a marvellous slice of the history of the MOS
