Many colleagues will be shocked, as we were, to hear of the sudden death of ADRIAN ORD. For many years Adrian worked as a much loved and respected Company Manager touring the UK with Sadlers Wells ballet and companies such as Fiery Angel, and in London residencies such as Railway Children (Waterloo) and the show he was currently working on: Hay Fever at The Duke of Yorks Theatre London (TRB Production). Adrian started his career as resident stage manager, and was part of a close-knit team working backstage at Theatr Clwyd for a number of years after it opened in 1976. Adrian was taken ill late last week with circulation problems, and sadly succumbed to a stroke on Monday evening (20-7-15). Adrian’s wry and sometimes wicked sense of humour and immense professionalism and humanity will be greatly missed by the many colleagues with whom he has worked in a long and varied career.
