A LOCAL musical group, celebrating after scooping three awards at a prestigious ceremony, is urging local people to support them so they can continue performing.
March Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society say their shows do not attract large enough audiences to balance the books and are calling for the community to back their prize-winning shows.
The group recently won Best Musical and Best Technical Production categories for the staging of Footloose and went on to win the shield for Best Overall Production in the eastern region awards by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association.
Paul Tinker, director of Footloose and MADAOS committee member said. “The only sadness is that our shows do not attract large enough audiences to strengthen our bank balance so this year we have had to make the difficult decision to step away from a large musical and perform smaller revues to increase our profile within the community.
“MADAOS is a local group full of talented people performing to the highest of standards with great results.
