On behalf of the AMOS Committee I would like to say a big thank-you to Andy!
A great time was had by all who attended the AMOS Christmas Ball on Saturday 19th December 2009. The flurry of snow that day made for a very atmospheric evening of magic and sparkle!
The evening commence with Buck Fizz and entertainment from local Magician Archie Manners. who at just 16 years old was absolutely amazing and had guests mezmerized with his tricks.
Andover Sound DJ Paul Newman acted as Master of Ceremonies and did a fantastic job, giving the welcome speech and later presenting the AMOS Awards.
Comedian Lee Hume travelled through the snow from Brighton to be with us and performed two brilliant sets in between dinner, with his individual style of conversational humour that made us chuckle! He's a rising star of the comedy world so keep an eye out for him in the near future!
After dinner Paul and Lee presented the AMOS Awards - a light hearted reiew of the last five shows and an opportunity to give members recognition for the hard work and fantastic performances.
All in all it was a fantastic evening, and our thanks go to Mark Lazenby and his team at The Quality Hotel for providing a delicious meal and holding the event, and to photographer Andy Brooks who was there snapping gust portraits and candid shots throughout the evening - photos will be online asap.
Here's to the next one!
The last 2.5 years have been a bit of a whirlwind for AMOS, what with our committee restructure and our return in 2007 to the refurbished Cricklade Theatre - now known as The Lights.
The restructure has proved a great success, and building on the foundations laid by Sue and John Parker, Carol and the team have made excellent headway developing the society into a modern, forward-thinking group. The facilities at The Lights have enabled us to put on some more challenging and elaborate shows... We started off in 2007 with 'My Fair Lady' which was a great success, followed in 2008 by 'Thoroughly Modern Millie' (which was nominated for three Curtain Call Awards), and 'The Pajama Game', then in 2009 there was 'The King and I' - our most financially succesful show for quite some time! We are now working on 'Scrooge' due to take to the stage 1st-5th December which we are sure will be a popular show.
To celebrate our success over the last five shows we have decided to hold an awards ceremony to reward those who have performed will both on and off the stage with AMOS! The awards presentation will be incorporated into the Christmas Ball on 19th December at The Quality Hotel.
As well as the typical awards for Best Actor and Best Actress etc, there will also be some fun awards, and some extra special ones to be announced closer to the time!
