Peter Green

Secretary

Hello I’m Peter and I have recently joined the Committee. At the AGM in 2017 I was elected Secretary, I also assist with our sponsorship scheme and I am on hand to help out where needed.  I have been with the Society for 5 years and apart from one year with Chichester my only experience of musical theatre has been in Gilbert and Sullivan at school. I enjoy singing and hamming it up on stage, and  I am affectionately known as one of the ‘tenor ladies’.  As such I feel I am a suitably qualified and I enjoy all the fun and excitement that membership of SACOS brings.

Kathy Newman

Treasurer

Kathy has been a member of SACOS since 2007 and has held various positions on the committee including Vice-Chair & Secretary & has also in the past been our Stage Manager. Kathy was elected Treasurer for SACOS at the AGM in 2017.  Kathy also looks after our Patrons. You will never (well hopefully never!) see Kathy on stage as she is one of our non-acting members and more often than not will be found behind the scenes – though does make an occasional appearance front of house!  Kathy got a taste for theatre after moving to Selsey in 1999 and has been involved in a number of local groups.  She tried acting once and had a small role in a play and was heard to say “Well did that, can do it, but never again thank you….”

Lisa Kingwell

Committee Member

Lisa moved to Selsey in 2014 to be near the sea.  Not knowing anyone, she wanted to join a local group and get involved in “Selsey Life” and make friends.  In SACOS she is affectionately know as “Mrs Overall” as she comes to rehearsals and serves the tea & biscuits in the break.  After becoming involved in the production of Hello Dolly – organising the costumes and assisting back stage – Lisa then went on to join the crew of the End of the Pier Show and Fame shows. Having never been involved in musical theatre before, she thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, and appreciated the amount of work that goes into every performance. The result of all this “fun” was to join the SACOS committee and help where required.
