Waveney Light Opera Group
A message from the WLOG committee:
In the current circumstances. the General Committee of the main Society has reluctantly decided not to proceed with a spring show in 2021. The spring production was due to take place 20-24 April but it is clear that we are likely to be in Lockdown 3 for at least the next six weeks and possibly until Easter (the beginning of April). Even if the restrictions are eased from mid-February or sometime soon after, possible continuation of restrictions would mean that we would still not be able to meet as an amateur performing group. The continuing restrictions make it impossible to hold meaningful rehearsals and place serious doubt that audiences will be allowed to return to theatres in time for an April production.
Owing to the current lockdown and the likelihood of ongoing restrictions, the Executive Committee of the Group (which represents both the main Society and Rising Stars) has decided to defer the AGM - which normally takes place in early February - until we are able to meet again.
The General Committee of the main Society is also proposing that those members who had paid their membership fee for 2020 before the lockdown last March shall have their fee carried forward to cover 2021. The proposal will need to be ratified at the AGM when it is held.
We can but hope for better times later in the year and, subject to the prevailing conditions in the summer, consider an autumn show in October. Until then, take care, stay safe, and we look forward to the time when we can meet together again.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Our most recent production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was a great success. If you missed it, a flavour of the production is captured in this short film - enjoy!
