Four shows

Of course this is when it starts to get mad. We have four shows performing this week - all for children - all over the country. What's more - they're all receiving a great reaction. We have noticed this year just how determined each cast has been to deliver the very best performance, each and every show. There is a temptation in long runs to start playing around with the production. It is a hugely destructive temptation which can wreak havoc on a play. On occasion we have had to address this issue with individual cast members. Not this year. Their dedication to the spirit of the production has impressed practitioners from every sphere of the profession. It's a great credit not only to the cast, but to everyone involved, as each contributer has imbued their own serious purpose into the enterprise.

But it isn't going to get any easier in the short term. By April we will have five different productions in performance. I hope you can catch one!

I saw Treasure Island this evening at the Orchard theatre in Dartford and i thought it was fantastic!

the cast did really well, my friend and i went dressed as pirates, hehe. i just wanted to say that the cast of this performance were awsome! we really did enjoy the show. As an amature actress, i was fantasied by the set, the effects and of course the acting!

one last thing i want to say, was thank you for bringing such a great story to life, i thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it was meant for kids.

Well Done

Thanks Grace - it's great to get your feedback on the show. I'm very glad you enjoyed it. We've really enjoyed our week at Dartford and are looking forward to Richmond next week.

I wanted to express my thanks & praise for your work.

I organised a group of 46 children & parents to see Terrible Tudors at The Grove, Dunstable on Saturday & we all had a fantastic time.

The show was excellent & my son attended the workshop in the morning which he loved.

Please pass on my praise & thanks to the cast & crew for a great performance & their efforts at the workshop. Young or old we all had fun.

Thank you for creating such great entertainment that's educational too. My 7 year old is hooked!

Well done.

Excellent Website and great blog. I didn't realise you had been online for so long!

I'll be popping in again to keep up with the latest news. Did you tape yourself on the BAFTA's?

I tape myself wherever I go and watch the footage every morning. DVD's available!
