Raymond Shaw – A Tribute from Spotlight Musical Theatre Group

Raymond Shaw – A Tribute
From 1976 Raymond was on the Committee of Oban Operatic Society and in 1977 the post of Publicity Officer was created to utilise Raymond’s skills. He quickly formalised an impressive and ever-expanding list of honorary and paying patrons with the Duke of Argyll as the chief honorary patron. He personally wrote to all patrons to keep them informed of the company’s activities. He wrote to all local organisations to market the shows and successfully went as far afield as Glasgow in his marketing campaigns to attract High School parties to see the Operatic Society’s shows.
