Seeking Michael Reid
I had a lengthy exchange of correspondence with Rozamund Waring in Australia about Michael Reid (see last year’s newsletter, page 4). To date she has had no success in her quest. On a visit to the Essex Record Office last July I found him listed as Mike Reed in the part of Slim in the programme for the Chelmsford Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society’s 1958 production of Oklahoma, and the following year as Jeff Douglas in Brigadoon. I promised her that I would it give one last shot in this year’s newsletter in case the more precise detail rings any bells with anyone. Ed.
