TGI Monday!

A Royal Invitation to you...

Who was in the vicinity of the Urmston Cricket, Hockey, Bowls, Tennis and Social Functions  Club last Monday? Those that were there had the delight of hearing their rendition of A Royal Invitation from Alice The Musical. It was brilliant, loud enough to be heard in the bar with the shutter down and subject of several of the cricket, hockey, bowls and tennis patrons who were all very complementary. In addition, I believe they also learnt a dance at the same time. Just shows how good our junior section are and how good the show will be.

The cast is now sworn in and busy learning their lines and their songs. The Back Stage Team are about to have their first technical meeting to discuss the various aspects of the show in respect of the lighting, sound and scenery. Everything is booked and ready to go. Bring it on.

UMT Annual General Meeting

On a more mundane front, the UMT AGM will be on Tuesday the 26th April 2011 at 7.30pm. All adult members are welcome and it is important for the future of UMT that you attend and hear about, basically, a state of the Urmston Musical Theatre. There are tough challenges ahead for amateur theatre groups, even more so for the world famous UMT as we have to build and demolish our theatre during show week. It does not help when the holidays of Flixton Girls’ School (who have first refusal of the sports hall at the Urmston Leisure Centre) are out of sync with the rest of Trafford.

Also there are issues of constitution which need addressing and also the election of committee members for any vacant positions. All posts are challengable if you feel so inclined and require an element of hard work and commitment. There are also sub-committees such as Social and Show Selection if these take your fancy. Meetings are held mainly on the first Tuesday of each month. If you feel like having a go on the committee then let Jane, the secretary know. All nominations must be seconded and received no later than 10 days before the AGM. Any positions still to be filled on the date of the AGM will be by proposal and sender from the floor of the AGM.

In the next week or so I will publish a list of positions and indicate which are vacant to assist any person wishing to get elected to the committee.
