Lynda Lawrence

Acting Chairman & Secretary

 

I joined WAOS (as it was then) in 1989 to help as prompt in the first production WAOS did of Fiddler on the RoofI went on to join the chorus and auditioned for many principle roles including:  Dolly in Hello Dolly, Aunt Eller in Oklahoma and one of my favourite roles, Yente, in a later production of Fiddler on the Roof.

I was Secretary to the committee in the early 2000s and Patrons’ Secretary as well.  In addition, I was privileged to direct two shows:  Bye, Bye Birdie and The Slipper and the Rose.  I have had various tasks on stage and behind the scenes, one of the most frustrating was being “in charge” of Heaven in a production of Carousel, getting the stars straight (on individual fishing wires) was a whole second act task!

Presently, in addition to being Secretary, I have been in charge of Make-up for the productions, which keeps me in touch with the cast and crew and is a great deal of fun as well!
