August is here – goodness isn’t this year going quickly! I hope you are making the most of the sunny days and the gardens being thankful for the wet days. Well rehearsals are well underway for our Hi-de-Hi production in October and a great deal of fun is being had rehearsing. Due to my intermittent absence this year, and therefore not been able to audition, I have been given the task of making Spike two fancy dress costumes. The baby costume is easy – my challenge will be a light weight dustbin costume. I don’t suppose you have one hidden in your cupboard? Ha! Due to being a HAG Member my cupboard/loft is full of weird and wonderful things. My husband is desperate to declutter – I have had to ban him from doing any decluttering without me!

As I am writing this a month in advance – Our Charity and Remembrance Evening for our dear friend Lesley Parish to be held on 23rd July may or may not have taken place. We were not allowed to gather for singing rehearsals and all was put on hold waiting for July 19th update. Do you sense the collective holding of breath from the Choir? I shall update you on this next month.
July and hopefully summer has arrived. For those of you staycationing keep an eye open for our Hi-de-Hi holiday camp opening in October. At least you won’t need to quarantine after your visit to the Victoria Hall (or at least we hope not)! If you would like to join the crew for this show please contact us – you maybe a dab hand at painting scenery or clever with a sewing machine we can always use your skills.

Sadly our small group rehearsals had to be postponed as the rule of 6 was still in force for singing, so our Charity and Remembrance Evening for our dear friend Lesley Parish to be held on 23rd July may be in jeopardy (my crystal ball can’t see a month in advance). A classic case of who knows? Members of the Choir should have received all information. Keep singing, keep smiling! We’ll meet again, don’t know where (hopefully at the Jubilee Hall) don’t know when (when Boris says we can), but I know we’ll meet again some sunny day! Bet you have an ‘ear-worm’ now Ha! Ha!

We were hoping to have all restrictions lifted by then, but instead we will need to conduct the meeting under the current restrictions. We are able to have 24 people in the Jubilee Hall, and we will also be Zooming the meeting. Hand sanitiser will be available.

Our Choir Leaders are organising small group rehearsals starting this month and shall be rehearsing songs for a Charity and Remembrance Evening for our dear friend Lesley Parish to be held on 23rd July. Members of the Choir should have received all information. Keep singing, keep smiling!
As I said last month – We are extremely grateful to our membership for supporting us through good and bad times – a BIG THANK YOU those of you who have already paid. If you haven’t yet, can we ask for your support again? We do hope so, the show MUST go on? Membership forms can be found on our website. Thank you!
Goodness April already! Here’s hoping everyone behaved themselves and Boris has now allowed us to meet up with 6 people outside as promised. Hi-De-Hi is still a possibility for October and read through and auditions (albeit via Zoom) are hopefully happening. As I have to write this a month in advance I need to be a clairvoyant, so fingers crossed that is the case. There will be a time when live entertainment is back on track and we shall be thankful we can gather and enjoy.
HAG ROCKS! CHOIR
Still on hold, however, a little bird told me she is already preparing music and arrangements for some songs and is currently working on Oliver! Not sure what songs exactly, but musicals are always a hit with the Choir. Remember our Phantom of the Opera – the Sopranos loved hitting those high notes (I wonder if we can hit them now)? Keep singing, keep smiling!
We are extremely grateful to our membership for supporting us through good and bad times – without shows our funding is declining, as with most groups at the moment, so a BIG THANK YOU to our members. Unfortunately membership renewal is upon us, as it is April……..can we ask for your support again? We do hope so, the show MUST go on?
