APARTMENT TO RENT IN VILAMOURA, ALGARVE
Our 2007 Spring Luncheon was held at the Barley Mow, Tandridge. The food and bonhomie was enjoyed by all.
We are continuously looking for venues for our Seasonal Lunches and we are wondering if any of our members has any suggestions where we could hold one of our lunches. We need somewhere which can accommodate up to 50 attendees with a three course menu ideally priced from between £10 to £12 per head. Golf clubs, Restaurants and Public Houses will be considered. If you have any recommenda- tions please contact David Newman (see p.2 for contact details).
We look forward to seeing you at our Autumn Luncheon, to be held at the Grasshopper, Westerham on 20th Septem-

West Wickham Operatic Society: Annie
Churchill Theatre, Bromley: Thursday
1st November 2007, 2.30pm
WWOS’s The Witches of Eastwick was a terrific show, as those members who saw it will testify.
The company’s next "epic" will be a new production of the ulti- mate feel-good family musical ANNIE! Over 80 hopefuls are to audition for the title role on 21st July. Maybe they hope to follow in the footsteps of Catherine Zeta Jones, who, aged just ten, played the lead role in a Swansea produc- tion.
The original 1977 Broadway production was nominated for 11 Tony Awards and won 7, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book. It ran for 1,485 perform- ances at London’s Victoria Palace.
Annie has a lot for everyone, with 6 big company numbers, and at least 20 different character roles, big and small. Songs from Annie include: Tomorrow, Easy Street, It’s A Hard-Knock Life, Little Girls and NYC.
Croydon Stagers: Thoroughly Modern Millie
Ashcroft Theatre, Croydon: Thursday 29th November 2007, 3.00pm
Taking place in in 1922, the show tells the story of small-town girl Mil- lie Dillmount, who moves to Man- hattan in search of a new life. It's a New York full of intrigue and jazz - a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing for- ever.
Based on the popular 1967 movie starring Julie Andrews, the stage version of Thoroughly Modern Millie
includes a full score of new songs and bright dance numbers. It opened on Broadway in April 2002, ran for 903 performances and won six 2002 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The show also ran at the Shaftesbury Theatre, followed by a UK tour.
Filled with frisky flappers, dash- ing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, this is just the thing for the Stagers’ talents. Philip Talmage
