I WAS pleased to see the picture of New Rosemere's 1978 production of Gilbert & Sullivan's Princess Ida in The Bolton News a few days ago.

Your readers may be interested to know that Hannah Carolan, the daughter of Steven Gent (who appears in your picture as King Gama), is still carrying on the family tradition of active involvement in New Rosemere.

She will not only be on stage taking the lead role of the plaintiff Angelina in Trial by Jury, but will also be off-stage, directing HMS Pinafore in the society's 110th production, a double bill of G&S's Trial by Jury and HMS Pinafore at the Parish Hall Theatre, Christ Church, Walmsley, until tomorrow.

The show will feature a full orchestra under the baton of New Rosemere's award-winning musical director Christine Seager and tickets are still available from Helen on 01204 300666.
