50 Years of ROS Report

Tuesday, 18 May 2010

Our special anniversary revue, 50 Years of ROS, was performed at the Palace Theatre from Thursday 13 to Saturday 15 May 2010.

The production team of Norma Kift, Tony Jay, Tony Lacey and Maggie Moriarty worked really hard on putting the show together, and we thank them all for their efforts. It was enormously gratifying to hear the reaction from our audience. We have heard nothing but praise for the show.

But the acclaim is really to be shared by every person on that stage. The whole company worked so hard… probably three or four times harder than during a ‘normal’ show, and whilst we all had our worries about just how much there was to learn – we really pulled through in the end. Everybody should be incredibly proud of themselves. It was a truly fitting tribute to the past fifty years.

It was particularly fitting to have Pearl Taylor – one of our founding members, who has been with us for all of those fifty years – sing the final song. A great ending to a great show!
