Director's Blog Week 3!
Hi all,
As part of this blog, I am not going to dwell on the current situation regarding the Corona Virus as I am sure, like me, that you are well aware of the impact that it is having on the daily lives of many people both locally, nationally and internationally. As it presently stands, we are continuing with our production of ‘The 39 Steps’ and will keep you up to date with any developments which come out of this highly dynamic situation.
For me and many others, Amateur Dramatics have become a ‘safe haven’ away from the stresses of daily life, where friends come together to have fun and produce entertainment which can bring smiles to the faces of their families and of those in the local communities. So long as we are safe to do so, maintaining this spirit of comaradery is so important in troubling times. I have an incredible cast and technical team and will continue talking and listening to them over the coming weeks and months and their safety and comfort will continue to be my number one priority.
After that rather sombre start, we move forward onto this week’s rehearsals! This week, we welcomed James and Louise back and having all seven members of the on-stage cast enabled us to crack on with pulling all of last week’s hard work together. Some of the highlights included Beth and James having good fun working out a rather complex scene involving an arm chair and a very nifty escape; Mark nearly blowing a blood vessel whilst performing a Scottish pre-dinner prayer and Kim playing a coat stand with great aplomb! Having received the first props in the form of our movable boxes (naturally being transformed from scene to scene into different roles!), next week we will be tackling the ever famous train chase scene – sure to be a cracker!
Finally, with this blog we are delighted to be able to launch our poster! As you may have worked out from recent Facebook posts, the highlight of this year’s production poster is three of our very own cast in role! You will come to see this eye-catching image around the village and in the surrounding areas and hopefully it will help to engage both regulars and passing traffic. The image itself was created by my good friend, Steve Town, and I remain incredibly grateful to him for agreeing to produce this for us. Please do print and share copies of it – it all helps.
Have a good week,
Ben 🙂
