Heartfelt Crew Condolences

SHAKESPEARE IN PARADISE

All of us at Shakespeare in Paradise and Ringplay Productions Ltd. 
were saddened to hear about the passing of Betty Knowles. She was 
the manager of the “Dundas Centre for the Performing Arts” for the 
past twenty-five years and worked with Winston Saunders, Philip 
Burrows and a Management Committee of theatre professionals to help 
with a growing theatre movement throughout the 80s and 90s. 

Betty started out at the Dundas as a backstage worker and then 
moved on to Stage Management. She took over her theatre management 
duties in 1989 when Philip Burrows decided to leave that position 
so that he could devote all of his energy to the Artistic Direction 
of the Dundas Repertory Season. More than just managing the building, 
Betty worked with set builders Jerry Smith, George Plakaris and 
Helen Walker on many sets for Repertory Season productions and was, 
at times, called upon to be Props Mistress and to help find various 
pieces of furniture needed to dress sets. 

After the retirement of Winston Saunders, as Chair, followed 
shortly by the dissolution of the relationship between the Dundas 
Centre and the Repertory Season Management Committee, Betty 
continued her work at the theatre with former Chairmen Ronnie 
Knowles, Sean Hanna and with the present Dundas Chair, Theresa 
Moxey-Ingraham. 

Betty took her management duties very seriously. Even though some 
would say that she was maybe too serious in that job, you would be 
hard pressed to find a more loyal person to have overseeing such 
a space. All of us, at times, have had disagreements with Betty 
on the way forward but those of us who knew her personally 
understood what the Dundas really meant to her and why she so 
firmly held to her positions. At the end of the day her commitment 
to our common goal in continuing to help to maintain a functioning 
theatre and our close personal friendships held us all together. 
Her passing brings about a very sad day for the Bahamian theatre 
community.
 
We offer sincere condolences to her brother Bert, sister Bunny 
and the rest of the Knowles family on Betty’s passing. The Dundas 
will surely be a different place without her.
 
Requiescant in Pace Amica Mea.
