Players’ AGM was held on Thursday Feb 21. At this meeting Chairman Rosie Aust said, in her report,
We have a lot to celebrate as we begin our 70th year – we have a reputation of which we can be very proud. Not only are we respected as a group who produces plays to an amazing standard in every aspect but we are also known as a group who welcomes people with open arms – everyone loves to work with St Jude’s Players.
Russell Starke OAM was our special guest and he was wonderful. His presentation – Cabbages and Kings – was an entertaining chat encompassing memories of his early childhood linked very cleverly to recent experiences. Russell painted strong visual imagery with an amazing skill as a speaker. A truly mesmerising presentation.
The committee was elected – (L-R) Mary-Jane Minear (treasurer), Aslan Storm (Publicity), Maxine Bowles (FOH Coordinator), Rosie Aust (Chair), Eric Offler (Membership), Robert Aust (Secretary), John Thompson (Bookings), Don Oakley (Set Coordinator)
