"The Pirates of Penzance was a perfect pick-me-up on a Spring evening. The playful, polished, professional show was a pleasantly piratical introduction to Gilbert & Sullivan for a good number of patrons. What a show! Congratulations to all!"

 

 

New Rosemere in Concert

On Saturday 17th February, 7.30pm at St. Paul's Church, Astley Bridge.

Join us for an evening of songs from musicals old and new, including: My Fair Lady, Jekyll and Hyde, South Pacific, Wicked, Les Mis, Mamma Mia and many, many more. 

Tickets at only £8 are available on the door, although to avoid disappointment we suggest you get your tickets in advance. 

Ring David on 01257 263053.

We are now half way through our concert rehearsals and preparations are going well.

It promises to be a great evening's entertainment, with songs from Abba, Irving Berlin, Wartime Classics, Gilbert & Sullivan and Songs from the Shows.

It features our own very talented singers (including four NODA nominees). There'll be some fantastic solos and duets to enjoy as well as all the chorus work.

See our Home page for details of how to get your tickets.

Unfortunately, it is now too late to join us to take part in the concert, but if you would like to join the Society and be in our next show, 'Ruddigore', in March 2014, please do get in touch. Rehearsals start after the concert.

'The Gondoliers' was a fantastic show, congratulations to all involved.

We've had some lovely feedback from our audiences; if you'd like to share your thoughts, Contact us.

 

'The Sorcerer' was a great success.

A massive thank you to all the cast and crew for their hard work and also to the audiences who came to support us.

Photos and video clips will be added soon.

... and she's the youngest Chairman the society has ever had.

Hannah Carolan (nee Gent) took over the helm of New Rosemere at the AGM in June. Despite being only 26, Hannah has been a member of New Rosemere for years; in fact, as well as becoming Chairman at the AGM, Hannah was also presented with her 10-year long-service award by President, Bernard Killeen.

THE CHAIRMAN WRITES...

"I always wanted to be in Rosemere - in fact I can't remember not being around the society. My Dad, Stephen, became a member in the '60's and my sister, Elizabeth, in the '80's - it was then pretty much inevitable that I would join in too.

As a child, I would go along to some rehearsals and the Dress Rehearsals each year and be mesmerised by whatever it was I was watching; I vividly remember watching Ruddigore and being amazed by the moving pictures.

I got involved in Rosemere as soon as I could, I started off selling programmes during show weeks and then I became a cast member in 2000. My first show was 'The Sorceror' in March 2001 - I'll never forget that feeling I felt each night as the curtains opened, it was sheer joy.

It was with great pride that I took over as Chairman in June; to be leading the society that I grew up in is quite an honour as well as a responsibility.

Rosemere means a lot to me (in fact the society's name is probably written through me like a stick of rock!) so I am keen to see it prosper and grow. We are always looking for new members to add to our cast and crew, so if you fancy doing something new why not pop along to a rehearsal and come and see for yourself what we're all about."
