June News Letter

July 11, 2018



Hi all, I hope you're all enjoying this beautiful weather. First of all congratulations to all who have been cast in Spamalot the auditions were fantastic. Now we all have to look forward to the finished product and I for one can't wait.  We have lots of exciting things coming up, don't forget to get your teams together for the treasure hunt it's always a great day, also the children's workshop is one for our junior members to look forward to. While the children are at the workshop I will be doing some face painting tutoring for any adults who fancy a go. I look forward to seeing you all at least one of the upcoming events but until then keep enjoying the sun. Kerry.xx

With help from the Cudos Presidents’ Fund, Robyn attended a Le Mis workshop and has written a few words to share her experience.

“ I had an amazing time meeting someone who was both in the Les Misérables film and on  Broadway! He was so lovely and it was a pleasure to meet him. I learnt quite a bit that day like how to act low class and high class in fun ways! 
We had exercises we had to do and I was so lucky to get that chance! I had a great time and I want to thank Cudos for helping me get that chance for the experience and I'm sure that will help me a lot for a chance to work with performing arts as I have always dreamed to be in his position so thank you so much!   Many thanks    Robyn”
