As the deputy stage manager ‘on the book’, Alison Pendlowski, is frequently asked, “What does the show look like?” or “How is the show going?”. Click the image to read her reply. And do get in touch if you fancy being ‘on stage, but not on stage’ as part of our hard-working production team.
Calling all Pirates!
Have you noticed that our right-hand column “Next appearance” is a Pirates of Penzance Summer Singalong on Friday 21 June? “Singalong” does what it says on the tin, which is to allow everyone to participate. But you don’t have to wait until June, because you’ll be very welcome to come to the rehearsals as well – we “know the value of a kindly chorus”, as Ralph Rackstraw puts it in HMS Pinafore (next year’s main show … hint, hint!).
Our first rehearsal is at 7.30pm on Wednesday 20 March at Whitefield Day Hospital, Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfermline (some directions are at http://tinyurl.com/ctayy9.). Anyone who would like to sing with us is encouraged to attend this preliminary rehearsal, after which Willie Campbell, our MD for the Singalong, will be able to decide how many rehearsals are needed and when they will be, the aim being maximum enjoyment from minimum slog! Do please come along, and bring a friend – whether a tame pirate, or one of Major-General Stanley’s daughters, all will be made welcome.
