Morag Riley

Morag’s first introduction to Gilbert and Sullivan was in 197.…! ( too long ago) when she played Hebe in her high school’s production of HMS Pinafore. There followed a gap of many years until she saw an advert from Dunfermline G&S in 1993 for people to sing in Die Fledermaus. As she had just moved into the area it seemed like a great time to meet new people and get singing again.

Morag has sung in all the society shows since then, apart from 2000 when she returned to university for a year so that she could do a post-graduate diploma in teaching. She has played both Vittoria and Inez in productions of The Gondoliers as well as taking on solo numbers in summer shows and concerts.

She is delighted to be manning (or should that be womanning) the ramparts of Castle Adamant as Chloe, who is tougher than she appears.

Morag is currently the chair of the Dunfermline G&S committee and has had the difficult job of leading the Society through the two years of the COVID pandemic. On behalf of the Society, the Programme Team would like to thank her for all her hard work.
