Rotary Club of New Bedford, MA - Weekly GAM


GAM...A nautical term describing the exchange of news between vessels departing from and returning to their ports... 


July 27, 2014  


This Week


Our guest speakers were Maryann Goulart and Sarah DeMoranville from The Little Theatre of Fall River, Inc. Sarah has performed in several musical previews for the Theatre and performed a few songs for us.  She has a voice of an angel the performance was amazing.  Maryann does not perform much now but has accepted the roll as the Hair Hag in Les Miserables.  Congratulations on her roll.  Also, she did bring a few props that are used in their performances which were very interesting.


The Little Theatre of Fall River is celebrating their 80th year of Community Theatre in the Fall River Area.  The upcoming performances are Les Miserables running from October 16th-19th 2014, The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 running from March 19th-22nd 2015, Legally Blonde the Musical May 14th-17th 2015. 


The Rotary Club was offered a $35.00 discount purchase price of a subscription if we have 20+ people interested.  The subscription includes 3 tickets, one ticket for each of the shows.  If you are considering purchasing a subscription please let myself or Cheryl know.

Also, it was suggested by Alan that I audition for the Trailer Park Musical which I guess he thinks my trailer trash background will come in handy. Thanks Alan!
