WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE!
It is my greatest pleasure as President of Ayr Amateur Opera Company, or AAOC as we’re affectionately known, to welcome you to our 2023/2024 session.
Well, what an 80s spectacular that was! The Wedding Singer, played in February/March to large audiences, was a huge success, and described as ‘extremely effective’, ‘high energy’ and ‘filled with showstopper moments’ in our NODA report.
We now move from the 80s back to 1930s Austria as we sing of our Favourite Things and Edelweiss, in the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, The Sound of Music.
I am delighted to welcome back our dedicated and talented production team: Martin Christie as Director, Cammy Hill as Musical Director, Lynne Christie as Choreographer, Lynne Bradley as Stage Manager and Catherine Malcolm as Costumier. They work tirelessly throughout the year to bring a high calibre production to life, and I know this year will be no different.
I am immensely proud and grateful to all our members and patrons who continue to uphold the high standards our audiences have come to expect by the reputation duly earned by this company throughout its successful long history. A special thanks to; Vice President Greg Philp, Immediate Past President Nicola McKinlay, Secretary Claire Dorby, Treasurer David Cannell and our four further ordinary committee members for their continued support and hard work in helping to keep live theatre alive in Ayr.
Finally, allow me to thank you for your continued support for AAOC because without you it would not be possible for us to put on our annual productions. We look forward to seeing you on Monday 26th February- Saturday 3rd March 2024, at The Gaiety Theatre, Ayr, for our production of The Sound of Music.
