I joined WAOS (as it was then) in 1989 to help as prompt in the first production WAOS did of Fiddler on the Roof. I 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!
