Rogan Earp-Jones (1969F)
popped into The Mitre for a visit on Thursday 28 March.
He came to collect a signed copy of John Sharp’s (1969O)
book Facing Down Fear.
He gave very positive feedback about The OD Magazine.
On further questioning, it turns out that he has been involved with Gilbert and Sullivan a
nd Pineland Players
amateur productions since 1972 (i.e. shortly after leaving school). .
Rogan has done over 50 G&S
productions, and has recorded copies of all of them since 1983 (when technology allowed recording).
He explained that he has been Chairman of both G&S
and Pinelands Players
Societies, and is the only person to be an Honorary Life Member of both Societies.
Rogan also knows many ODs that have passed through the theatre scene.
He immediately mentioned Anthony Storr Lister (1973G)
. Anthony’s Father was a legendary teacher at Bishops, he himself was the Development Appeal Director (building up to Bishops 150), and he is currently teaching at SACS.
All of this links nicely with a story about two weeks ago in the Newsletter:https://www.odunion.com/news/congratulations/322/322-CATA-Awards-
