Opening Night - A Success!

Our latest Theatrical offering down at Horsehay Amateur Dramatics is an evening of 3 one-act plays. It's the first time the company has done something like this and we weren't sure how well it would go down with our very loyal audience, ticket sales were very slow last week, but we needn't have worried. Opening night last night to a full house who all seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. It was quite a mixture of plays, the first was a drama, the second a Noel Coward comedy (bit old fashioned for me) and the last, which I was in, was a good old farce and very funny. We all had great fun doing it and it went really well last night, no prompts, no mishaps and the special effect (a small explosion!!) went off exactly right - for the first time ever! Two more nights to go and then a rest, which'll be nice but I always miss it the minute I stop.

Here's a couple of piccies, two from rehearsals and one from the dress rehearsal. For a nice change it was fairly normal clothes for me, although I did have to look a bit frumpy!

Hi Jan, fantastic photos, thank you so much for sharing them with us :) I really admire your for your acting, I don't think I could ever be that brave to stand up and perform in front of an audience. I'm so pleased you played to a full house on opening night and good luck for your final two nights, have fun :) Donna x
