2021 AGM

The 51st Annual General Meeting of the Dunfermline Gilbert and Sullivan Society was held on Wednesday 19 May 2021. Because of the coronavirus lock-down, the meeting was conducted on-line by Zoom, and 22 current members successfully logged in.

The Finance Manager’s report, having been circulated before the meeting, was discussed and accepted, the Chair’s report (which will be circulated to members) was discussed, and the Management Committee proposal that the annual subscription remain at £120 (£10/month by standing order) was accepted unanimously with one abstention.

The forthcoming Zoom production of The Mikado was discussed. The March Zoom pantomime, The Merryman and His Maid, written by Robin Ożóg, was widely regarded as being highly successful. The invaluable contributions to both productions of Robin Ożóg (Director), Willie Campbell (Musical Director) and Martin Tarr (Technical Manager) were acknowledged by all. The Wednesday Social evenings, each rounded off by one of Robin’s quizzes, have been much appreciated by participants.

It was hoped that the 2022 production of The Pirates of Penzance would go ahead as planned, but it was acknowledged that there is still uncertainty about likely restrictions associated with the pandemic. [It has since been necessary to postpone the production till 2023. A semi-staged performance of Princess Ida is being undertaken instead.]

The Chairman (Morag Riley), Finance and Ticket Sales Manager (Anne Dolbear) and Programme Manager (John Allen) were re-elected, and Mark Cecil re-appointed as Accounts Examiner.
