THE WAY WE WERE

Memories like the corner of my mind

Misty water-coloured memories of the way we were

Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind

Smiles we gave to one another for the way we were.

Lorraine Peden One of my very favourite pictures. My son Scott as Oliver aged 9, year 2000... can remember the auditions in the grand central hotel as if it was yesterday, never in our wildest dreams did we think Scott would get lead role, we went hoping for a part of one of the workhouse children. Very happy memories as he played the role another 3 years

Annemarie Kenneth My three took part in shows over a few years. Very exciting times for us all . Beth played little Cosette in two productions of Les Mis and was one of the children in the king and I. James was in the chorus of Les Mis and was Louis in the King and I . Katie was back stage and helped with the barricade in Les Mis .
I can鈥檛 believe no more Apollo .
