VALE Two Very Special People.

 Southern Peninsula Players and Rosebud Astral Theatre.

In the last four months, friends and members of the Rosebud Theatre Groups mourn the loss of dear friends Jean Brown and Carol Bice. We celebrate the good memories of both ladies who respectively held positions on their management committees and contributed with passion to community theatre down here on the peninsula and in particular Rosebud.

Both Jean and Carol, will be greatly missed. We send our love and condolences to their families. 

Jean served as both secretary and treasurer of Southern Peninsula Players for many years. Her husband Geoff was also heavily involved with the group, and ran the box office for many years, even after they officially left management, selling tickets from their shop – Rosebud Carpets. Both Jean and Geoff in their retirement never missed a show at the hall and for many years until Geoff’s death Jean served on our front of house team. She ran a friendly and tight ship, often having to clip Geoff across the elbow when he was chatting to make sure patrons got to their seats safely and in plenty of time to get immersed in the show atmosphere. Jean was a fiercely loyal friend and faced all problems and ill health with a patience that was strengthened by her faith. Very often a flash of acerbic wit would take her listeners aback. She was strong-minded and true.

Carol performed with both theatre groups. However, her passion was music. She was a very accomplished singer and her voice, in harmony with people like Lyn Lith was amazing. Carol Bice was a member of Astral’s committee of management for many years. She was the costume mistress for most of that time, making, adapting, cataloging and looking after the many costumes Astral accumulated. Her designs and skills were extraordinary. Her work on the Mikado costumes had everybody awed and inspired. Carol was able to mix and match a variety of colours and patterns for the kimonos the little maids were to wear, (we had a lot more than three). She was able to create designs that looked good on any shape or size. Carol was a gentle lady, but with a quick wit and an unforgettable giggle.
