"What seems like a ‘Hard Knock Life’ right now
Hello, my name is Chloe and I have been a member of Workington Amateur Operatic Society for 10 years. I joined the Junior section of the society in 2010 when I was 11 years old and have not looked back since! My first memories of the Juniors would have to be singing ‘Rule the World’ by Take That repeatedly and complaining to others about how sore our necks were whilst bowing our heads during the opening of the Les Mis medley. I was lucky enough to perform in several hit shows with the Juniors, my very first being Mulan to my last being Starlight Express in 2017. I was so sad to leave the Juniors behind, however little did I know this was not the end of my time with them. When I was asked to join the Junior Committee in 2017, the answer was a definite yes! Since being a part of the committee, I have helped with several productions and concerts, ran workshops and most importantly, had fun. It really is rewarding working directly with the Juniors, especially when all the hard work and effort results in performances from them that are just fab. I can’t wait to see what the Juniors do in the coming years. I then joined the adult section of the society in 2017. I have taken part in 3 productions and met so many new people, some of which have become my best friends.
