From 12th - 14th October, IMOG will be performing the classic show ‘Calamity Jane’, made famous by Doris Day in 1953, and raising money for Lennox!
IMOG has been performing shows since 1970, when Peggy Godfrey and Alan Braun conceived the idea of forming a local musical society. Adverts were placed around the village of Ingatestone, and the first meeting was held at Peggy’s home.
This inaugural meeting was attended by nine enthusiasts who became the founder members of the Ingatestone Opera Group (IOG), which was subsequently renamed Ingatestone Musical & Operetta Group (IMOG) to reflect the wider musical tastes enjoyed by its rapidly increasing membership. Rehearsals began for a production of HMS Pinafore and things really started taking off. Needless to say, their production of HMS Pinafore
was quite a hit
The success of the group over recent years is down to a dedicated and hard working committee who are supported by a talented and enthusiastic membership.
IMOG are will be raising fund for Lennox at their upcoming show 'Calamity Jane', which promises to be another hit show! Tickets are available now so don't miss out! Call 01277 354015 to buy yours today and support IMOG and Lennox!
