TOADS Stage Musical Company

The Golden Toad

This was a suggestion by member Mike Ryman in 1994 as a device to get membership to appreciate just what goes into putting a show on the stage, and also to appreciate the huge amount of work required to run an active Society. Obviously the Committee need the assistance of many members to get all the duties done at the right time, and in good order.

Each year, during the final stages of the summer show, the members are asked to consider who they would like to see win the award (Committee members are not eligible); taking into account personality, help given to the Society, input to the show etc. and the Committee then scrutinise the votes and make a final decision.

The winner receives the Golden Toad to hold for one year and a replica Toad to keep.
