Over the last few months, we have lost three FTH:K friends. Allow us to take a moment to remember them.

 Roz van der Vyver

Roz’s life came to a tragic end, and while many will speculate on the way in which she died, we would like to remember the way in which she lived.

Our relationship with Roz goes all the way back to one of the company’s earliest success stories, GUMBO, when it made its entrance into mainstream theatre with a short season at the Baxter in 2008.  Not only was Roz there to celebrate its 100th performance, but the relationship between her and FTH:K continued through a number of other theatre-related engagements and events.  Tanya and Roz also worked together on a project which aimed to turn Bellville Civic Centre into a dedicated theatre space, a project that is on-going and remains evident of her passion and commitment to the theatre industry.  Roz was a warm-hearted, giving spirit, and to her friends and family, we wish you all the love and support through this difficult time.

Roz’s memorial will take place at the Baxter Theatrre, on Friday the 23rd September 2011, at 4pm.

 Graeme Elliot and Ian Hudson

Graeme and Ian were our founding accountants and we were shocked to hear of their passing just months of each other.  They were never too busy to answer questions, and given that we started as a fledgling arts organisation, these questions were many! They were always looking for ways to refine our systems, advise us on how best to move forward,and never looked down on us simply because we were a small arts organisation. Rather, they used our unique situations to adapt systems and structures to best suit us  as artists.

We always considered Graeme and Ian to be part of the FTH:K family for a number of reasons.  They handled some of the most sensitive information that a company has,  helped us understand how to read it and how to use it in our planning, and even attended out AGM’s!  We remain grateful for every moment they spent with us and will never forget the role they played in helping our little company find its financial feet.

Much love and support to their families and friends.
