We are absolutely thrilled to announce that our Presidents, John and Sue Parker, have been nominated as finalists for the 2011 Pride of Andover Awards!
John and Sue have been selected for this contribution to the arts in Andover, having been at the helm of the Andover Operatic Society / Andover Musical & Operatic Society, since the 1970's. They led the group for many years on the committee making a name for the society in the local performing arts scene. Together they managed to keep everything going during the difficult time when the cricklade theatre was closed for renovations and even after stepping down from the committee, they have continued to support the new leaders providing advice and assistance whenever needed.
We are sure you will agree that John and Sue are so deserving of this nomination. They have given so much of their time and energy for so many years to keep musical theatre alive in Andover, providing countless opportunities not only for hundreds of people take part in a musical production, but to thousands of people to enjoy the excitement and joy of watching a musical.
Upon hearing they had been nominated, Sue said "What a lovely surprise! We are touched and honoured to be nominated – whether we win is neither here nor there, it is the thought that is important."
John and Sue will be treated to a special reception for nominees at the Awards Ceremony to be held at The Lights in October.
