Chairman’s Notes

Ladies and Gentlemen

Welcome to the 42nd Production of the Society. I feel that top marks are due to all those concerned in staging of this Musical.

“Finian’s Rainbow” takes place in Rainbow Valley in the mythical State of Missitucky, USA., a fertile valley where the tobacco crop – and the imagination – runs riot.

Our Producer, Anthony Dawson Harper, has worked tremendously hard, and I sure that his creative qualities will be evident in the interpretation of the show.

As Chairman, may I thank all Society members for their continued support and you, the audience, for your encouragement, for without you all our efforts would be in vain.

We still require more Supporter Members, so please give it some thought for I am sure that you would enjoy being part of the Society.


Director’s Notes

In these days of “instant” entertainment it is heartening to know that there are still to be found enthusiastic amatuers who are willing to give their time and gifts to reccreate such delightful shows as the one you are about to see this evening. With its charm and popular melodies “Finian’s Rainbow” is a show which I hope will be enjoyed by both young and old.

I wish to take this opportunity of thanking all the production team and all those both on and off stage who have worked so hard with this production. Their satisfaction and mine would be the knowledge that we have given to you a happy and pleasureable evening – we hope we have succeeded.
