AMOS are please to announce that as a result of our collection at The Lights Theatre during our production of Scrooge Naomi House Children's Hospice,we have raised a total of £376.66.
We handed in our collection buckets just before Christmas and have just received notification from Deborah Speirs, Naomi House Commnity Fundraising Co-ordinator of the final amount. We are really thrilled that we have been able to make such a sizeable donation.
We will be visiting Naomi House in the next month or so to present them with a cheque.

Congratulations to Paul Marsh who has been nominated for a Curtain Call Award - Best Actor in a Musical - for his performance of Ebenzer Scrooge!
The judges said that Paul had a beautiful singing voice and had excellent characterization. The awards will take place on the 29th January 2010 at The Devere Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton. Fingers crossed!
Our first night of Scrooge went really well tonight. The audience numbers were better than expected so we were really pleased! Tickets are selling well for the rest of the performances too so it looks like we might have a successful show run. If you haven't already got your tickets book now!

A small group of us donned our Scrooge costumes and spent 2 hours Carol singing in Andover's Chantry Centre on Saturday. Raising money for Naomi House we sang a variety of festive favourites such as White Christmas, Jingle Bells, Bethlehem and Hark the Herald Angels Sing!
Passing shoppers seemed to enjoy of performance and gave very generously - we won't be counting up the collection until after Scrooge but the buckets were very heavy! Fingers crossed the people of Andover have been generous!
On Thursday 19th November, star of 'Scrooge' Paul Marsh went to Castledown Radio station and was interviewed live 'on air' by morning show presenter Rick Young. Paul did a great job telling listeners about the show - hopefully it will drum up some interest from the people of Ludgershall, Tidworth and the surrounding villages. You can listen to Pauls interview by clicking HERE.

Sunday 12th July was Audition day for our production of Scrooge. There was an excellent turn out and we were particularly pleased with the efforts of some of our newcomers to the society.
Tonight our Director Will Johnson gave us an introduction to 'Scrooge'.
As well as giving us an insight to his plans for the production, he also displayed pictures of his ideas for costuming, presented a scale model of the set and played us some musical numbers. It looks like it is going to be a fun-filled festive show!
For your information, Tuesday rehearsals commence on 16th June so we can make a start getting to grips with the music. Those interested in Auditioning for principle roles will have an opportunity to run through the songs with Neil / Roz on Thursdays, starting on the 18th June.
Auditions will take place on Sunday 12th July, timings TBC - check back soon for more info.
