So very pleased to be asked to be Production Manager for the Hostry again this year. The sheer range of acts and events, from theatre to dance, is always a challenge to fit in and ensure a quality spectacle. This year was no different and the attention to detail and quality ensured that the festival was a success. Events were well attended and it was a great showcase for Norfolk based talent. Some shows came from further afield but all enjoyed the experience and all audiences went away happy. I had to keep my wits about me, performing lighting design / operation, AV support and also rigging supervisor alongside my main role but when everyone works together to ensure a high calibre show or shows it's all worth it. Thanks to everyone involved, no matter how small your input, it couldn't happen with out you.
It was my pleasure (As part of the Hostry Festival 2017) to welcome Julian Lloyd Webber to the Blake Theatre and listen to his rousing remarks on the state of Music tuition and the future thereof. It was an incredible showcase of youth talent from the region. A great night was had by all and a successful opening to a week of culture, theatre and entertainment. A big thank you to Xenia Horne @SuffolkHarpist for making it all possible.
Technical and Dress rehearsal for "Frost on the Rose" today. Amazing performances from the cast, Brilliant director and it will be a great show. Tickets are available from http://www.greathalltheatre.org.uk/ I'm pleased that the new equipment is working well and this show marks the completion of my Sound / Lighting upgrade for them.
