VALE - George (Russell) Bissett

Heidelberg Theatre Company has just received the sad news of George's passing, following a heart attack on the weekend.

George has for many years been one of The Company's most valued members - a mainstay in the Sound Design and Sound Production of so many of our shows, and he won many awards in acknowledgement of his creativity and expertise in this field.

A commemoration of George's life and work for HTC will be held at 3.00 PM on Wednesday 18 January at our theatre in Turnham Ave. Rosanna.


Our second 2017 production is a wonderful adaptation of Jane Austen's much loved classic 'Pride and Prejudice'.
