The most traditional pantomime Snow White was our Millennium production. In fact it was the first time the Company had ever staged it, as it had never been performed before. Stalwart member Rachel Grey gave a polished performance as Snow White before she embarked on her university degree. The Company for the first time used a full orchestra under the lead of Jaci Brickley-Clark and they also decided to introduce personal microphones for the cast. Nick Leek decided to retire from his position as Musical Director but carried on as Chairman. At the beginning of the year Bob Symons who was awarded for outstanding service died at the age of 58. He performed in and produced many shows and was a semi-professional to the Company. At the start of 2001 the sudden death of our Membership Secretary and Drummer Ted Hunt was reported. Ted gave so much time, skill and friendship to everyone. In mark of respect the Company decided to award annually a Ted Hunt Memorial Shield to the best boy and girl. During that year we staged Red Riding Hood. Another extra performance was included, this time on a Friday Matinee which meant the Company increased its performances to eight.
