Footloose – the antidote to a miserable week!

Henley Standard letter FootlooseGreat news in The Henley Standard. It turns out that Reading Operatic Society can banish the blues by bringing Footloose to The Kenton Theatre.

Mary Williams’ spur of the moment decision to make a “rash purchase” of a ticket to see the show on Saturday night resulted in her being delighted.

“The youthful cast were a joy to watch, especially Sam Pemberton for his comedy timing, Charlotte Gilliam for her cute quirkiness, James Gwynne for his powerful singing and acting and Jerome Ifill whose dancing ability was outstanding.

“I have not been a frequent theatre-goer before but if shows like this are at the Kenton regularly I will certainly be back.

“Thank you for a wonderful evening Reading Operatic, I feel much better now!”

New logo for Reading Operatic Society

PageLines- reading-operatic-society-logo.pngReading Operatic Society has unveiled its new logo following a design process by the society’s lighting designer Kim Hollamby, who works as a communication and marketing director by day.

The logo incorporates the full name, the familiar ROS initials and a quaver to provide a visual clue regarding the musical focus of the society.

“ROS had used various logos and related designs over the past few years,” Kim Hollamby explains. “But the brief was to provide a new design that would be used throughout all of the society’s material in the future. There were lots of ideas that were tried but the final version seems to summarise very well the society’s past and present.
