     It is with great sadness that we have learned our fellow thespian and musician  by night and QC by day, Richard de Lacy passed away on Monday, July 24th.  Richard was a big supporter of CDS, joining after attending the very first  "Cocktails and Cabaret" show in 2012.  Richard became active when he played  with Chuck and Barrie as part of the orchestra for "Jekyll and Hyde" and again for  "Rent".  He joined the cast of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" in  2016 as Jacob and the memorable Potiphar.  He again joined the cast of "Yes  Minister" as Sir Arnold and the french ambassador.  

     Richard contributed this for his bio in "Yes Minister":

    "Richard’s stage career ranges from "Chips with Everthing "by Wesker (Hull 1969) to "Turandot "by Puccini and "Macbeth" by Verdi (Orange, France 1979 and 1981).  Thereafter he devoted himself to becoming a better barrister. This cactus was recently caused to reflower by Cayman Drama Society (Jekyll & Hyde, Rent, Joseph).  He is delighted to have been invited to play himself as the Cabinet Secretary. "

     He will be greatly  missed by not only the CDS family, but also by the Cayman  National Orchestra where he was an active member.  Besides a thriving law  practice, Richard was also the Deputy Chair of the Conditional Release Board  among other roles where he contributed his time and immense expertise.

    For reasons of Planning (permits are going to be required and it is better to get permission for all of the things we want to do) the existing bar was refurbished to give volunteer bar staff a more effective environment to look after the public.

    The results of the two-week upgrade exercise look good and have been positively received by both our bar volunteers and our patrons.

    Congratulations to Beverly and Andrew for getting this done.

    As many of you will now have experienced, the auditorium was significantly upgraded during the summer break.

    • All rows of seating are now on their own levels except for the first two rows where the stage view is upwards.
    • Seat width was increased from 18" to 21" and the chairs are now linked so that the auditorium is more safe.
    • Curtains were added to the walls to create a better environment for events involving music, and especially live music.
    • The access stairs to the stage were moved stage-left.
    Please let us have your feedback on these changes.
