From the Editor

Since the last edition a lot of water has gone under the bridge, so to speak. The Society has had an A.G.M. resulting in some Committee changes; two workshops and some new ideas.

Firstly thought, the attendance at the A.G.M was more than a little disappoint. Even the enticement of supper and the Friday night didn’t work! A copy of my President’s Report is enclosed as a result of the motion carried at the meeting.

The Amateur Theatre Society was fortunate in being able to secure a $3,000 grant from the State Bank. The purpose of the grant was to buy a personal computer to establish a script library, as well as performing other administrative functions. It is therefore hoped that you, as members , will support the Society in our aims to compile such a library.

The workshops, held late in February and early march, were a great success and it is planned to hold similar workshops on various other aspects of theatre, very shortly.
There is a list of people interested in the Directors’ workshop but who were unable to make it on the day. There are sufficient numbers to hold another class, but if anyone is interested in participating, drop us a line.

There is a problem, we find, with communication. At a recent meeting, several Theatre Groups, who are also members f this organisation, were present. A representative of the Society was also present. The words, Amateur Theatre Society, brought nothing but quizzical looks, and questions such as, “Who?”. As there is, in some groups, a problem with distributing copies of ENCORE, we would be most grateful if single memberships to the Society were encouraged. This would also be of great benefit to yourselves, and increase the circulation.

As the result of a decision made at the A.G.M, it was thought necessary to bring into line, all membership expiry dates. Up until recently, memberships expired at different times. (This was because Group joined at odd intervals) There will be some pro rata cases but the majority of memberships are due as of the A.G.M Please wait for the membership form to be mailed to you.

Whilst on the topic of membership, the membership card issue was raised. There was some very lengthy discussion on this topic. Some groups had requested very high numbers of the cards and it was costing us. The cards are transferable so it is not essential that each member has a card. If people want their own cards they should join the Society as individuals. Each group requesting cards will be issued with TEN free cards and they will have to pay the amount of 50 cents for each card in excess of ten. The amount of fifty cents was agreed at a recent Committee meeting.
