Vale - Paul Miller 1957-2019
Many will be aware of the recent and unexpected death of our friend Paul Miller. Paul has been associated with Miranda Musical Society and various other community theatre groups across Sydney over many years. His early time with us included many ensembles and playing The Heavenly Friend in our production of Carousel in 1984. He then went on to play Bill Sykes in Oliver! (1990), Professor Higgins in My Fair Lady (2004), and Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music (2005). He returned to play the Starkeeper in our most recent production of Carousel (2015), the Innkeeper in Man of La Mancha (2016) and the Narrator in Beauty and the Beast (2018).
Paul has always been a talented actor and a passionate and vocal advocate of community theatre. His outstanding character portrayal in roles always drew admiration and praise, and through it all he was a thorough gentleman and a giving and generous man. He is already keenly missed.
His passion for theatre has inspired both of his children, Rachel and Jack, to take to the stage and both are involved in community and professional styles of theatre. Our thoughts and love are with both Rachel and Jack at this saddest of times.
