September News Letter
Well what a success Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was! The audiences and the cast loved it, Ann and Dave must be thrilled and it just shows what we can do when we go out of our comfort zone. Congratulations to all involved. My only regret about the whole show is that my DRS hoodie went missing at Malaga airport - life is unfair! The Christmas concert rehearsals started this week and Beth has a very clear vision of what is going on - I'm not sure I will ever get the cup slamming right but everyone else is very good at it. Good to see Lucy back behind the piano. Beth is also in control of the dinner dance this year - another heavy load and I hope lots of members come along to ensure it is a really good night and we have a quiz coming up so hope to see lots of you there too - there's no time to get bored in CUDOS. Take care and see you soon. POLLY
