A Celebration of Life for our friend Garth Watson

Garth John Watson

May 17, 1959  – August 26, 2019

A reminder that a Celebration of Garth’s life will be held on Saturday November 2, 2019, 1:30 to 4 p.m. Memories will be shared at 2 p.m. at The Concert Hall at Victoria Hall, 55 King St., West in Cobourg.

VOS THEATRE will announce the Watson Memorial Scholarship to be awarded annually to one graduating student from Northumberland County who is pursuing post secondary education. The recipient will have demonstrated an outstanding and ongoing contribution to technical aspects of theatre in school and/or Community Theatre productions. Garth loved to build and invent and work on projects that elevated theatre productions and knew the true value of the work done backstage in a production. We thought this was a fitting way to honour him.

Donations to the scholarship can be made through e-transfer to theatre@vostheatre.com (memo Watson Memorial) or by cheque to VOS, memo line Watson Memorial. They will also be thankfully accepted at the Celebration of Life on Saturday.

All are welcome. Please join us as we Celebrate the life of our friend Garth.

Chitty in Albemarle, North Carolina

On July 4th, Hugh Stewart and Edie Stuart drove Chitty, her set, and costumes 15 hours away to Albermale, North Carolina for the Uwharrie Players production which opened July 27th.

The Players booked this rental a year ago but due to circumstances could not pick up their order. To save them from cancelling their show Hugh and Edie volunteered to make the trip

The truck is loaded and off he goes!

Loading Up

A crew of volunteers went about the delicate work of loading the moving van and off it all went to the U.S.

The Journey is the Destination

Hugh Stewart and Edie Stuart will be bringing her home on August 6th to our storage barn at Burnham Market in Cobourg. Safe travels you two, and many thanks from the VOS and Uwharrie Players!
