July News Letter
Hi all, Firstly massive congratulations to all who have been cast in The Sound of Music. We were so lucky to have all that talent to choose from, it also brings new members to our CUDOS family and I know our members will give them a warm welcome. There are a few exciting events coming up this year so make sure you jot those dates down so you don't miss out. Here’s to another exciting few months in the CUDOS calendar. Kerry.xx
Fees became due for renewal in March and should be sent to Wendy Elliott, 9 Winyards View, Crewkerne TA188HZ (cheques made payable to CUDOS) or catch up with her at rehearsal. If you would prefer to pay by bank transfer contact Wendy for details.

PLAY AND MUSICAL 2020
We are looking for Directors for the 2020 play and musical. If you feel you would like to produce for CUDOS please speak to Chairman Kerry or a Committee member with shows you would like to put forward to direct.
It has been decided due to difficulties in filling prominent roles within production teams, that the Committee will consider, on an individual basis, that members may receive an honorarium from the show budget.
