Mad Margaret

Julie Gower

Though he treats her cruelly, Margaret is ardently in love with Despard.

This is Julie’s fourth show with Christchurch G&S and she is thoroughly enjoying the role of Mad Margaret. Rehearsals are always fun and Julie highly recommends anyone thinking of joining to come along as you will be made so welcome.

Julie loves performing and has played many different roles, and not just G&S. These roles include Iolanthe (Iolanthe). Mad Meg (Ruddigore), Anna (King and I), Kate/Lilli (Kiss Me Kate) where she first played alongside Mark Ward (Sir Despard) as he was playing Fred/Petruchio. Carrie Pipperidge and Julie Jordan (Carousel) but not at the same time! And not forgetting Glinda (Wizard of Oz) and Meg Brockie (Brigadoon).

Julie would particularly like to thank Sarah (our director) and Ieuan (our musical director) for giving her the chance to play this fabulous part, and also to thank Sarah, Ieuan and Philippa for all their hard work and patience in putting this show together.

Special thanks go to her wonderful husband Mark for all his support, as always.

So please, sit back and enjoy the show.
