Glasgow Light Opera Club Amateur Dramatic Society 100 years of performing musicals!
‘Betty joined the Glasgow Light Opera Club in 1957, and her first show was Carousel, in the King’s Theatre in which she played the role of Carrie Pipperidge. She became President of the Club ten years later in 1968 and retired from the position in 2008. Thus, she was President for 40 years. She was a full member of the Club for 61 years.
She performed in 54 shows in five theatres including the King’s, The Empress, The Falcon, The Alhambra, and the Mitchell.’George Mitchell
We loved his humour and the joy he brought to all our rehearsals and shows.
To that end, we would like to honour his memory by holding a concert in his name, and donating money to a charity of his family’s choice - The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.
We would like to announce ‘GLOC Presents ... A Concert For Tommy’.
This will take place on the 10th May 2019, in Adelaides on Bath Street, Glasgow, at 19:30. Tickets will be £14 (£12 for seniors) and are available from club members & by request at our club email address firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope all those who knew Tommy, and all those who were lucky enough to share a stage with him will come along and help us celebrate him in the best way we could imagine.
The Glasgow Light Opera Club (GLOC) are an inclusive and friendly amateur dramatic club based in Glasgow.
We have members from all walks of life and all age groups who share one thing in common...a love for musical theatre!
Since 1908 GLOC have staged operettas and musicals for the people of Glasgow and beyond to enjoy!
GLOC's dedication to singing and acting excellence has always been at the forefront of what we do, as well as keeping the amateur tradition safe and healthy in increasingly challenging times. We perform a major musical show annually at the Kings Theatre Glasgow.
We meet for rehearsals in Glasgow Indoor Bowling Club and are always on the lookout for new acting and singing talent! If you are interested in us, why not come along and see us in action at our rehearsals? We can guarantee you will be made very welcome. Please see our Club News page for the latest information.
