  • Hello everybody, and welcome to the Garrick Theatre for our production ofThe Scarlet Pimpernel. Its the first time we have staged this show and by theend of it Im sure you will agree its an excellent choice.

    To watch a show grow over a six month period is incredible. Theproduction team pass their skills and enthusiasm onto the whole company. To sit in on a rehearsal with the principles is a master class in directing. Thechorus, under the baton of Ruairi Edwards are drilled to perfection.

    We welcome Sophie Randal as Choreographer, every move on stage is vitalto the appearance of the show and she has done a super job.

    Its a real delight to welcome new members into the society. I did overhearsome of the auditions and as a result, some amazing new talent has been addedto the company. The standard of auditions for principal parts was extremelyhigh and I am sure you will agree that the parts have been very well cast.

    We are a happy bunch of people, and I like to think we look out for eachother, we become a family really.

    I would like to thank Vice Presidents, Patrons, our hard working committee,back stage crew and also to you, our audience, for your continued support.

    Please sit back for a history lesson set to music and enjoy the show!

    Pam Finnigan

  • Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen. This is my sixth year as Chairman and it givesme great pleasure to welcome you once again to the Lichfield Garrick Theatre for tonightsperformance of The Scarlet Pimpernel. This is a show that is probably unknown to many ofyou as a musical, but some of you will have read the famous book of the same name byBaroness Orczy.

    Scarlet Pimpernel has proved to be a great challenge to the society and we must thankour talented production team of Lynne Hill as Production Director, Ruairi Edwards whoreturns as Musical Director, and making her debut as choreographer, Sophie Randal whosome of you will remember as Maria in the Sound of Music. They have all worked very welltogether and I must thank them for their efforts over the last six months.

    This has been a very difficult show to learn, with so many songs being new to us. I hopeyou agree we have a very talented front line of principals in this show. As ever they arebacked up by the societys strong chorus, many of whom could hold down principal rolesin their own right.

    Finally I must mention our backstage technical team, unseen, but without them theshow would be very second rate. Then there is our management committee who serve thesociety so well throughout the year. All together a great team and my thanks to them all.

    We are so very fortunate to have this wonderful Garrick Theatre in Lichfield and I thankThe Chief Executive Adrian Jackson and his staff who help us to put on a show as near toprofessional standards as we can make it.

    A lot of hard work has been put in by everyone over the last six months and I invite youto sit back, relax and enjoy tonights performance. I hope that if you do enjoy the show youwill tell your friends to come and see it before we close on Saturday.

    We never
