Mr Ray Houlston [continued from MEX0.900.0091]. The President of the Society, Mr Ray Houlston, remarked that it had been said that the Society could not do "The New Moon". He felt that the complete answer had been given that it could - and that it had (applause). Mr Houlston paid tributes to the whole company, and all concerned with the production, and specially mentioned those who had had charge of the various departments. He heartily congratulated Mrs. Hoar upon the outstanding results she had obtained as producer, and also particularly mentioned Mrs. F.G. Paterson, who had come to the Society's rescue and made the production possible. She had followed a line of very able musical directors and has brought out all the charm of Romberg's attractive music. The Society appreciated the excellent support of the public, which was always encouraging. Bouquets were presented to Mrs. Hoar, Mrs. Paterson, Mrs. Geddes Campbell (ballet mistress), Mrs. P. Reece (wardrobe mistress), Mrs. G. Sutherland (accompanist), Mrs. May Hannan (leader of the orchestra) and Mrs. I. Mills (double bass). Guests of the Society for the performance included Mr. Graham McClymont, a former secretary of the Society and now an executive member of the Wellington Society, and representatives of the Canterbury Society.
