A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Dear MMS Members and Friends,
Thank you for your support during 2015. The year has been full of highlights, including three successful full scale productions, numerous events along the way, and the launch of our 2016 Season to give people a taste of whatâ€™s to come next year. On a personal note, weâ€™ve been fortunate to welcome another baby into the world, and see our eldest through her HSC, so life is certainly busy!
Our March 2016 show is in full swing under the guidance of Col Peet, Meredith Simpson, Dean Turner and Sam Larielle-Rogan, with Man of La Mancha already shaping as a show not to miss. Geraldine Turnerâ€™s preparations for our June 2016 production of Jacques Brel are well underway â€“ under her guidance (and that of Maestro Mark Cranston Reid), Brel promises to be a highlight in any musical theatre lover's book. Also, Gavin Leahy, Lolly Butler and Anthony Cutrupi have outlined what promises to be a hilarious production of Mel Brookâ€™s Young Frankenstein in September 2016.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our society this year, whether in an administrative, creative or operational way. Early next year, our members representatives will be running a members forum, which has been designed to provide a mid-year feedback session on what we, as a Committee, can do to improve MMS. If you have any ideas on great initiatives, opportunities for improvement, or you just want to be involved in shaping MMS into the future, I strongly encourage you to come along.
Wishing you and your families a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
Andrew Symes - MMS President
