It’s ticket time!

The longest day is coming fast. If you would like something enjoyable with which to while away the long evening hours, why not come to our Sing-Along The Pirates of Penzance at 7.30pm on Friday 21 June 2019 at St Margaret’s RC Memorial Church, Dunfermline KY12 7JB. You have a choice of singing along with the chorus – scores will be provided – or just sitting back and listening.

You can get tickets at the door, but it would be safer to buy in advance from members of the company, or to reserve by phone/text to 07703 483083 or by email to ku.gro.ssagdnull@selastekcit. Whichever you choose, your £10 will both be a bargain and help your Society.

Understudies needed

If you’re a member of the Society, you will have received an AGM agenda by email. If you can’t find the link, please email Ellen. Even if you don’t have time to do that, come along anyway to Whitefield at 7.00 this Wednesday. Joy Campbell has emailed, urging “all members, active or not, to come to the AGM to hear what we have been doing, make your opinions heard, and take the chance to discuss the future of the society”. And she has asked everyone to consider contributing to DGASS by standing for one of the four committee posts that fall vacant by rotation this year – Chair, Finance Manager, Programme Manager and Ticket Sales Manager. Is one of these jobs an opportunity for you?

KGASS at 80


Kirkcaldy Gilbert and Sullivan Society is holding an 80th Anniversary Concert on Friday 7 June at 7.30pm in the Old Kirk, Kirkcaldy.

We are promised a lovely, varied programme which will be hugely enjoyable.

[Cath Tate Cards have just the birthday card for our friends at KGASS. Entitled “80 at last!”, the message continues “Now you can forget growing old gracefully” … ]

AGM and Pirates rehearsals

The 49th Annual General Meeting of the Society will be held at Whitefield Day Hospital at 7.00pm on Wednesday 5 June. Ellen will be circulating an agenda in due course.

The meeting will be followed by a rehearsal for the Sing-Along of The Pirates of Penzance, giving an opportunity for any members of the Society who have yet to decide whether to come to the 21 June concert to refresh their memories of how good this music is!

There will then be full rehearsals for the Sing-Along at 7.30pm on Wednesday 12 June and Wednesday 19 June, when Willie will be joined by Nancy Crook, so free to wave his baton! Do put all these dates in your diary, and turn up if you can.

And don’t forget to sell tickets, which are now available at £10 from Anne on 07703 483083 or by email at ku.gro.ssagdnull@selastekcit. You can download an A4 poster from this link, or a pair of A5 fliers from this link, or you can ask Geoff for hard copies. Please email Martin if you need a bulk supply!

Limekilns concert

Alison Pendlowski invites everyone to head for Limekilns Church at 7.00pm on Saturday 8 June, for a Summer Concert given by the Queen Anne Singers, directed by Nancy Crook. Guest soloist will be our very own Frances McCafferty, Honorary President of the Society – and you can spot the other well-kent faces. An enjoyable evening is guaranteed!

Sweet Charity

Join Charity Hope Valentine as she searches for love in the strangest places in New York in the Swinging Sixties. Charity is a dancer for money, as unlucky in love as she is in life, but ever hopeful of realising her dreams of romance, a comfortable life and escaping the seedy Fandango Ballroom. Featuring the enduring musical classics Big Spender, The Rhythm of Life, There’s Gotta be Something Better Than This and If My Friends Could See Me Now, Sweet Charity is packed with hilarious characters, stunning dance routines and a whole lot of heart.

Susanne Horsburgh would love you to support her in Edinburgh Music Theatre’s production which plays at Edinburgh’s Church Hill Theatre on Tuesday–Saturday 16–20 April each evening at 7.30pm and with a 2.30pm matinée on the Saturday. Click the image to go to the EMT Facebook page.
