January 29-30th VIETNAM /CAMBODIA CULTURAL TOUR 2014

Please make sure you see Mrs. Owen if you cannot attend. Thanks
We are happy to announce the cast for our musical ensemble. Obviously it is disappointing that we could not cast everybody who auditioned - but with more than 120 people trying out that was clearly impossible.
If you didn’t get in, we understand that you may feel a little disappointed - that’s natural. Please make sure that your disappointment doesn’t stop you from being happy for those who were cast.
We will be meeting soon, to discuss the commitment required. It is important to note that we are not going to have the rehearsal on the weekend of the 1/2 February.
If you no longer wish to be part of the production, it is important for you to let us know as soon as possible.
