GWOS are delighted to announce that their next fully staged production will be Gilbert and Sullivan’s ‘Yeoman of the Guard’. This will be performed at Worcester’s Swan Theatre 8-12 April 2014. The committee are currently appointing a production team and rehearsal dates will be released in due course. Auditions will take place towards the end of the year. Further information to follow.
GWOS would like to thank Detroit’s www.detroits.uk.com 1950s diner for sponsoring out ‘Oklahoma’ programme and providing GWOS theatre goers and cast with a fantastic discount for pre theatre food. Some of our cast were able to have a lovely meal there on the Saturday and can recommend it for a lovely meal before a theatre performance.
Supporting charities is very close to GWOS’ heart. Every year we try to support causes nominated by the society. As a direct result of our fund-raising during Oklahoma show week, GWOS are delighted to announce that a sum of £600 has been donated to Worcester Breast Unit Campaign. More information about the campaign can be found at www.everybodyknowssomebody.co.uk and it is hoped an article from the Worcester Evening News will be published shortly.
‘Pirates in Day’ was a huge success! The Mayor and Mayoress invited GWOS to host a scratch performance of ‘The Pirates of Penzance’ at The Guildhall in Worcester on April 27th 2013. Lots of singers turned up in the morning and spent the day rehearsing, before an eager and enthusiastic audience descended to watch the final results. A full write up will be posted in due course, but initial indications are that a large sum of money has been raised for the mayor’s charities.
