Evelyn Campbell.

Evelyn Campbell.

For those in the group who were members during our time as Oban Operatic Society, you may have performed or worked with Evelyn Campbell. Sadly, Evelyn passed away a few days ago. She took part on stage whilst a member, most notably in 1990 playing Aunt Eller in the group’s first production of Oklahoma. Evelyn will be remembered for her passion for singing and was also a talented pianist. Our condolences to her family at this sad time.

Sad Times….

Sad Times….

Spotlight Musical Theatre Group are sad to learn of the passing of former member and friend, Maureen Miller. Maureen, along with her husband Geoff, was part of our group for many years.

Although Maureen did not take to the stage with us, her help and support off-stage was invaluable, including her talent for making us some lovely costumes and her tireless work front of house at many shows.

An elegant, kind lady with a wonderful sense of humour. We will miss her.

Our thoughts are with Geoff at this very difficult time.

This week with Spotlight

This week with Spotlight

It’s a busy week coming up with Charities Day this coming Saturday (10th June).  If you are able to help out with our stall please get in touch with any of the committee members.  Also we are still looking for donations for the bottle stall – they can be alcoholic, juice, water or even shampoo etc as long as they are a bottle!!  Donations can be dropped off by Thursday at Rockfield Primary’s janitor’s office for Kate.

Alternatively you can bring them along to dancing which is back on this Tuesday at 7.30pm at the Guide Hall.

Hope to see you all at some point this week.

Thank you

Ellie

We will be running a bottle stall at this year’s charities day (Saturday 10th June) and are still looking for donations for the stall.  They can be any kind of bottle from water and wine to shampoo and aftershave.  Kate Bate is collecting them all so the best way would be to drop them off at the janitor’s office at Rockfield Primary in advance of Friday 9th June.

Thank you in anticipation.
