After taking a well deserved break I am back and raring to go :) Plenty of Auditions and Interviews over the next few weeks as I prepare for the Christmas rush. What's that you say? It's too soon? Those events don't plan themselves you know ;-) and I do like to plan well in advance so that we have a great show.
But before the dust settles on my break, I can reflect on what was an amazing timeI had at the F1 in Singapore. So well organised and so many great acts to support the racing. Queen were the highlight and although we all miss Freddie, Adam Lambert made an incredible front man and the band are beyond legendary. Well done to everyone involved. Many thanks for sneaking me into the sound box for KC & the sunshine band. You all did such a great job and my memories from my DJ years came flooding back :) Kylie was the amazing person that she always has been and I fell in love with her all over again, very beautiful and such a performer. So many memories, so much fun! And was can I say about Bastille? You were an unexpected surprise! Great songs, great stage presence and the crowd went wild for more. What an incredible journey.
And so the Mystery play run comes to an end and it was with great sadness that I moved the last of the equipment from the amazing Norwich Castle Keep yesterday. What an experience! I am forever thankful to my cast Roseanna Frascona, Helen Haines and Mark Hayden. You were amazing and lived up to every hope and dream that I had for the play. Heartfelt thanks also go to Hollie Harrington-Ball, Jen Alexander and Katherine Evans for supporting our cast and just generally being amazing and so co-opertive and lovely to work with. Thanks to Peter Beck and Helen Vinsen for allowing me to share in this historic piece of theatre and be a part of making it all happen. I couldn't have put all the tech together without the help of Karen Davies and Simon Moss, your professionalism as always is a key part to our success. And also thanks to Richard Jarmy for his additional video footage for the Garden of Eden.
The run was not without technical challenges, I can't believe that the medieval architects did not forward plan with modern technology in mind! :) But all challenges were overcome and the sell-out audiences loved every performance judging by the feedback forms. It's been quite something to pull this all together and I would just like finally to thank Steve Miller and Colly Mudie at the Museums service for believing in me giving us the opportunity to entertain.
This has been a show that I will never forget.
