I have been a member of Falkirk Operatic for many years. I have also done shows with Boness Operatic Society and Forth Dimensions in South Queensferry. Ive been priviledged to play lots of roles along the way - favourites include Miss Hannigan and Ado Annie, Connie in Made In Dagenham. The highlight though has to be playing Dolly Levi.
