Another of the local theatres that I support is the Great Hall Theatre Company and tonight is the usual monthly meeting of the executive committee. It's amazing the skills that you acquire while running a theatre company, the jobs that you have to pick up and the team management / event management that is required. We run six shows a year in an established arena style theatre but have to transform the room from a ballroom to a professional production space in just a few hours and then return it back after the production run. I never knew quite how much work was required before I took this on but it is always a joy to see a production come together, always wonderful to see the audiences enjoy the entertainment. I liked to see the excitement of our audience before they go in and hear their comments as they leave. I suppose that it's my love of the whole event and bringing some magic into peoples lives that spurs me on. Live entertainment, there is nothing quite like it.
Auditions for the Norwich Medieval Mystery plays continue and we've seen some amazing people, some breathtaking auditions and heard some beautiful voices. It's going to be a hard call to cast three people from the hundreds that have applied. Decision time soon though. Watch this space. :)
Another trip to see Stephen Bumfrey at Radio Norfolk today and he was in fine spirits. I was talking about Ladies in Lavender that open at The Maddermarket Theatre tomorrow. Link to the Radio Norfolk interview is here. More details about the show can be found http://maddermarket.co.uk/production/view/262.
First day of auditions for the Norwich Medieval Mystery plays and we have been blown away by the sheer quality and energy of the attendees. There are some very talented people out there and we feel lucky to have seen their abilities. A big thank you to everyone that came today. Can't wait to see the remaining shortlisted applicants over the next few days.
Exciting news about a big SciFi film to be filmed in and around North Norfolk. More details as soon as I know but Wow! I can't wait and I'm excited.
