To all our dedicated Friends and Followers, as you may be aware the Company belongs to a Society called NODA ( National Operatic & Dramatic Association ), as such all society productions are visited by their area representative who proceeds to ” judge ” the show and give marks of merit – once a year there is a ” Big Do ” where all the societies in a given region come together to celebrate their achievements and see if they have won an award !! Well it may be of interest to you to know that Preston G & S Society did collect an award or 2 or 3 !!
