Opening night – colour me stunned when people kept pouring in, we were near-as-dammit full. And it was a quality audience, too. So responsive! Cast were on the top of their game, the techy bits were spot on, too. All wrapped together by a top notch set – I was told it would be rich in colour and it would look expensive, and boy did it!
Night two – House was packed, not a free seat. They were a little quieter tonight. Concentrating and chuckling quietly rather than laughing out loud. Made the actors jobs a little harder as there was less energy for them to feed off, but still another excellent performance!
Night three – near-as-dammit full again! And super responsive again. The cast were lapping it up and giving it some welly. Lots of lovely comments about performance ( which we’ve had the other two nights, too – if you’ve not guessed, I’m VERY proud of my cast), AND also about the set tonight (I’m also VERY proud of my crew), which is much deserved, because it’s so, so pretty!
Final night – three quarters full, which ain’t bad considering the competition! International rugby (wales v new zealand, no less), football, Cowbridge town twinning, and an Edwardian themed event in cowbridge. On top of that the cast made me all uncharacteristically soppy with their thank you comments and gifts – all because they aimed it at me after I’d had a pint of cider. The little devils 😉
To sum it up, I couldn’t be more chuffed with how the play went and with how well it was received. I was blown away by ticket sales, amazing … and now it’s time for me to catch some zzzzzzz before we start the next one :-s
That’s all for now, folks!
