Norman Wheeler Award 2012 – Roz Chalk

Tuesday, 5 June 2012

Alan Bugg, Roz Chalk, Alan LeadbeaterThe Society have created an annual award, dedicated to the memory of our late President Norman Wheeler. This will be presented each year at our AGM to a Society member who has, in one way or another, made an outstanding contribution to the Society in the past year.

We are delighted to announce that the twelfth deserving recipient of the Norman Wheeler Memorial Award is Roz Chalk for her work organising the children appearing in The King And I.

Roz was part of the team that organised and ran the initial children’s audition; was at every single children’s rehearsal checking them in and out; was responsible for communicating with all the Mums and Dads, to ensure they knew everything they needed to know; was responsible for completing licenses for every child and liaising with the licensing authorities; and was responsible for organising the team of chaperones that were needed throughout the week of the show.

It was a time-consuming role, and not without its difficulties. But without it, we simply couldn’t have put the show on the stage. Thank you, Roz!
