RIP Pauline Beaton

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our dear colleague, Pauline Beaton. Pauline had been with D’Oyly Carte for almost twenty-years and served as our book-keeper and more recently as the Music Hire Librarian as well. We are lost in grief at her passing as she was a central part of the current company acting, as she did, as the administrative anchor in our Vauxhall office. Pauline went into the hospital for a routine procedure but acquired an infection and became resistant to antibiotics. She passed last Thursday night following a short stay in hospital. She will be missed deeply as her warmth and good humour were consistent and catching. There will be a period of disruption for the next month or so, while we try to get all of Pauline’s areas of responsibility covered. Please bear with us during this time and we will do our very best to ensure disruptions is kept to a minimum.
