For the first
time, the show was "topped-and-tailed" by one number, which stood alone from the
main sections - Music by John Miles. This number gave the show
its name - "Music is our First Love".
Fun moment #1
- the various methods employed by the cast to attempt to remember the utterly meaningless

so you reading your hand!
Not so fun
moment - the dress rehearsal on the Sunday night was marred by the theft of one handbag
and two purses from one of the downstairs dressing rooms.
show meal was in l'Amore d'Italia - and who can forget Robert Walker's rendition of Nessun

and David McFarlane announced their resignation as Director and Musical Director, and
bowed out in style on the Saturday night with a reprise of last year's showstopping Hey
Fun moment #2
- Zoe Bellamy and Claire Hamilton battling it out as to who could be the sparkliest in the
two fundraising concerts - one on Friday 18th May in St Michael's, and the other on
Saturday 19th May in St Mary's. And how we all wished we hadn't spent so long in the pub

Fun moment #3
- Crofton getting his mucking words fuddled in Money on the
Saturday night, as "A Mark, a Yen..." somehow became "A Buck, a
f*ck...". Briefly. Maybe no-one noticed....!
