Performing arts group needs help Driving force: The late Sallie-Ann Stones set up Otherworld Productions to support the performing arts. She is pictured here on the back of Malcolm Croawell's Harley Davidson at her last Santa parade in 2008. Fun times: The Wild, Wild, West was one of three major fundraisers organised by Otherworld Productions for an indoor community swimming pool. Sallie-Ann is centre stage. By GEORGE GARDNER COME ALONG Otherworld Productions, Blackpool School Hall, 6pm, March 19. Otherworld Productions is calling for individuals or com- munity groups to get on board and help maintain its vision. The incorporated society was set up by the late Sallie- Ann Stones whose mission was to support the performing arts on the island. An extensive wardrobe col- lected by Ms Stones created a costume hire business on the side, which has also been made available to schools and non-profit organisations for events, galas and plays. Ms Stones and Otherworld Productions were the driving force behind three huge com- munity events that raised almost $100,000 towards an indoor community swimming pool. The money will sit in a trust until a pool is built. Ms Stones died in Novem- ber 2009, but her work has continued through volunteers at Otherworld Productions. But her brother Stephen Horton, who stepped into the role of society president, is standing down because of work and family commit- ments. We have an amazing team of people who are still involved with Otherworld but we need a driving force. Sallie-Ann was that -- she devoted her life to it and left a legacy to the community, Mr Horton says. We all picked it up and ran with it. Events, salsa classes, school holiday programmes and the Sassy dancers have come out of it -- but we re a bit burnt out. Otherworld Productions has pretty much backed every community event for the last 10 years, from school galas to teddy bears picnics. Mr Horton says the organ- isation needs new energy . We think we should merge with another group or bring new people on board to take this community asset to another level. He says while the group is happy to work with new people, the biggest part of Otherworld is its wardrobe. We want to make sure the costumes stay in the com- munity so we d love to merge with a group that would still make them available to the public. It could be a school, a dramatic society or an indi- vidual. We just need to sit down and talk and work something out. Otherworld Productions is holding a public meeting on Monday at 6pm at the Blackpool School Hall. We will have to wind down Otherworld Productions if someone doesn t come for- ward but we don t want to see that happen, Mr Horton says. Call Stephen Horton on 021-995-577 for information.
