It was with shock and great sadness that HLT learnt today of the death of Gair McRae QSM earlier this morning. She suffered a stroke yesterday and passed away in Middlemore Hospital around 8.30am. For many of us, she was someone who inspired the love and art of theatre in our lives. For others, she was a dear friend and companion on our journey through the theatre world we love so much. She directed Oliver! at HLT in 2003. A celebration of Gair's life will be held at St. Columba Church, 480 Ti Rakau Drive, Botany, at 1 pm on Saturday, 28th November, with an after function at the Howick Children's of Youth Theatre home, Star of the Sea - 29 Granger Road, Howick. In place of flowers donations to HCYT appreciated.
