Standing ovation for youth theatre group at Eyemouth

SIR, - On behalf of Eyemouth and District Community Youth Theatre Group may I thank everyone who attended our “1 nite only” show.

The audience were fantastic and the standing ovation at the end of the night meant so much to our young people. The commitment and effort of the whole cast meant that their two months of rehearsal showed and they delivered a first class show.

Of course no show is possible without the back up of our fabulous front of house team, our backstage staff – in particular Fraser who came along to help with the sound and our very patient janitor, Davey. Special thanks also to Mhairi at “Matchmakers” for selling our tickets and Simon and Kimberley from the Berwickshire News.

Of course we must not forget the very welcome refreshments provided at the interval by Eyemouth Variety Group (and mothers of the cast!) which was a fundraiser for their forthcoming production of “Disney’s Beauty and The Beast” in March.

We would remind you that Associate Membership to Eyemouth Variety Group gives priority booking to Eyemouth Variety Group and also EDCYTG’s pantomime in November which this year will be “Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates”.

In meantime on behalf of myself, Pauline Greive, Andrea Thacker and our fantastic cast – THANK YOU once again!

JOAN BLATCHLEY,

Secretary.
