November 2011 meeting at the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound - a most interesting program

Members and guests met at the the Roxy Theatre, 9th Street, East, Owen Sound, at the hour of 1:30 P.M. on November 16. We gathered in the lobby area for the short business meeting.

We gathered in the theatre to learn more about the Roxy and Little Theatre. Aly Boltman began our programme with an illustrated talk on theatres in Owen Sound with a focus on the Roxy.

Ruth Gorbet and Andrew Dinsmore, spoke about the history of the Roxy over the many years since 1912. They shared their passion for our local theatre. Musicals are popular with audiences.

It was interesting to tour backstage to see where the scenes are made and to see what the stage looks like from the booth where the sound and lighting are controlled. As we walked through the green room area, we had a chance to see the many costumes for the musical, the Sound of Music, the Owen Sound Little Theatre's offering in November.

Following the tour, we had a chance to visit, enjoy refreshments and see the exhibits in the lobby.

It was a most enjoyable afternoon.
