Annie Poster unveiled

We are blessed to have such a talented designer as Scott Taylor who has created all of our posters, programmes, flyers and ads,; all free of charge, for several years now.  Ad what’s more he does them all from his studio in The Virgin Islands.

Go Scott, another fantastic poster with Harmony looking fantastic in her full Annie costume.  More masterwork from the costume wifies of Bangholm.

Wanted. Your support. Financially.

In our last post we pointed out the great work of Diane and Gordon (not to mention the rest of the FFM).

As show time approaches we are on the lookout for support from anyone in FCT, related to anyone in FCT or that just cares about FCT to support us with either cast sponsorship in the programme (ask any of the adult helpers at rehearsals all about it), show sponsorship or advertising in the programme.

From as little as £50 your business (or your employer’s business) can place an ad in the programme.

For more information email markgorman@btopenworld.com.

Last year one of our adult helpers was given a donation on her behalf of £500 by Lloyds Banking Group, just for asking.  And a local company, Agilent Technologies, donated £300 to help with show marketing so it just shows; if you don’t ask, you don’t get!

We are truly grateful to both of those companies for their help and support, but we always need more of them.

Annie. Act 1. Check.

Last week Vic, Lynne, Izzy and Joyce pulled off the not insubstantial task of running (a bit roughly it has to be said) Act 1.  So it’s an exciting staging post as we head for showtime.

We’ve also attracted four new advertisers for the programme thanks to the excellent work of new Fundraising, Finance and Marketing committee member Diane Gordon.

While we’re at it let’s hear it for Gordon Weston who quietly gets on behind the scenes as a member of the same committee managing our databases and sending members and supporters email updates, reminders and information.  Thanks Gordon.

OMG. Is that Lynne actually cheezin'?

Annie rehearsals in full swing and cast photos taken

Well, it’s a big cast.  The best we could do was squeeze them all into two big pictures.  Hope you like them.

You’ll find all of the shots on Flickr.  Look to the photobar on the left of your screen and click through to the link.

Annie, meantime is shaping up to be a great show at the St Brides Centre, in Oswald Terrace in the Dalry area of Edinburgh from April 13th – 16th.
