50 Years of ROS DVDs

Tuesday, 28 June 2011

Even though it seems a long time ago, we now have DVDs for sale of our golden anniversary production – 50 Years of ROS.

The show was filmed at the dress rehearsal by two professional camera operators, and the DVD is a superbly produced memento of this wonderful show.

Any member who would like to purchase a DVD of the show, at a cost of £10 each, please contact Tony Jay at any time.

The Royal Children: Cast List

Sunday, 12 June 2011

We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all the children, accompanied by their parents/families, who came along to the auditions for the Royal Children on Sunday 12 June.

The audition panel were delighted with the talent shown by the youngsters, and were thrilled to have so many children from which to choose. We understand that those who were not chosen will be inevitably disappointed, but hope this does not dent their enthusiasm for performing in the future.

We are delighted to announce the two ‘teams’ of Royal Children are as follows:

‘East’ Team (Tue, Thu, Sat Evening) ‘West’ Team (Wed, Fri, Sat Matinee)
William Beldham Isabelle Adams
Cate Bowater Lauren Court
Ella Bowater Sam Cox
