On March 23 2020, as we were preparing to audition for our next show the country went into lockdown. Covid 19 a new coronavirus was here and theatres were thrust into darkness for the next 16 months and our lives were put on hold. As a society we worked hard to keep our members together. Zoom socials and monthly newsletters had to suffice until restrictions eased and we were allowed that long awaited sing …….albeit outside! In September we are resuming rehearsals for our upcoming October benefit concert “The Story of Gilbert & Sullivan”. Covid has not left us but we will be taking all necessary precautions to keep everyone safe, whilst embracing the joy of returning to some sort of normality by welcoming you all back into the theatre to enjoy live performances once more!
