Two interesting days

Last week saw us at two very different venues.

On Monday we performed "The Story of Aesop's Fables" and conducted a Drama Workshop for Richmond Mencap at Orleans School in Twickenham. The play was a great success and everyone had a deal of fun with the Workshop, none more so than the carers and helpers. The groups came up with some really novel, and often amusing ideas for their 2/3 minute performances, and we all went away knowing it had been very worthwhile.

In contrast, on Thursday we travelled north to Worksop, and performed "Not such an Ugly Duckling" to a packed house at the Acorn Community Theatre. A venue we have visited before, and one that always makes us truly welcome. The children and the adults were enthralled by the puppets, and we breathed a big sigh of relief since this was our first puppet show in a theatre. The initial stage fright soon melted away as the audience quickly took up the theme and really got into it. It certainly helped with the long journey home.
