There will be an Extraordinary General Meeting of Society members on Wednesday 1 November 2017, approximately 15 minutes before the end of the rehearsal (Whitefield Day Hospital, Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfermline). This will allow members to vote on the proposal to use HMS Pinafore for the 2018 Summer Sing Along concert and for the 2019 February production to be The Sorcerer (last performed in 2010). Suggestions from the membership for an appropriate non-G&S show, which could be performed in February 2020, may also be brought to this meeting.
Edinburgh Gilbert & Sullivan Society has the perfect antidote to those post-summer blues – saddle up for their production of Oklahoma! at the Church Hill Theatre from 25–28 October! Their president says: “We are excited to present Rodgers & Hammerstein’s world-famous tale of love, adventure, rivalry, and cowboys. We’ve worked really hard on our set dances and would love for you to see them! … this energetic show will have you line-dancing all the way home.”
This year EDGAS have allocated seating, so get your order in now if you’d like to secure the best seats. You can order tickets by following the link to www.ticketsource.co.uk/edgas.

Coming actually just before Christmas is our Christmas Concert, which this year is an afternoon affair, for those who are either busy partying in the evenings, or don’t like coming out in the cold and dark.
We have booked St Margaret’s Memorial RC Church, East Port, Dunfermline, for a concert at 2.30pm on Sunday 10 December. Please keep the date, and pass on the message. And if you know of folk who’d like to join in from the front, rather than be part of the audience, do get in touch with our Chair, the lady in the photograph!
For those who want even more carols, we’ll be back at Tesco’s Duloch store later the same week, from 3:30pm on Saturday 16 December.
