Break a leg, everybody!
Those of us who aren’t on stage or otherwise part of the team putting on Pirates this week would like to wish everyone involved a very happy show. This may be the sixth time that Society members have “poured the pirate sherry”, “climbed over rocky mountains” and advanced “with cat-like tread” at Carnegie, but we know that this year our audience will be offered something just that little bit different!
As our Honorary President, Frances McCafferty, puts it in her message in the programme: “I know we are all in for a great treat from the rollicking band of pirates to the patriotic policemen and I look forward to that wonderful moment where all conflict stops momentarily for the singing of “Hail Poetry” – no heart can be left unmoved by it, certainly not the Pirate King’s.
“I wish everyone involved in the production a successful run of performances and invite the audience to sit back and enjoy what I am sure will be a wonderful show.”
