Currently the theatre is dark – there is 4 weeks of work being done on the heating system (conveniently in one of the colder periods).
A week back I did my first show of the year – a dance show with a company that I haven’t worked with before, although thats not too suprising since they only put a show on in alternate years. This dance school was fun to work with – well behaved, hard working and technically very good, however it was hard work because the staging aspects – lighting and set requirements – were being revealed to us as we went along.
However it was a good start to the year – next show is very different – Up and Under, which will be far more of a straight comedy play, but is likely to be quite creative in what they are doing. I hope to get to one of their rehearsals in the next week or so and get an idea of whats needed.
