Now the Autumn term has started


Summer seemed to fly by this year and we are now filling rapidly in the run up to Christmas.
Plenty of Saturday and the odd Sunday bookings are adding to the busy spell; no time for relaxation!
Today we entertained the children at Luton Library with "The Hare & the Tortoise". It was a lovely end of summer day and the square was busy with an international food festival, and firefighters' demonstration; a real carnival atmosphere.
On Monday we start in earnest at the schools with bookings every day, and next Sunday we are looking forward to performing at Wyllyots Theatre in Potters bar. The following Saturday you will find us doing two back to back productions of "The Gingerbread Man" at Lauderdale House in Highgate. We love this venue as, having once been the home of Nell Gwynne, it has bags of character.
If you still want us before Christmas do pick up the phone and call 07836 731872 or email Albert at brooksa4@sky.com to avoid disappointment.

The New School Year


No sooner had the Autumn term begun on the 2nd September than we found ourselves driving to Birmingham the very next day to perform our ever popular "The Story of Aesop's Fables" to a lively bunch of 4 to 11 year olds. My, those Foundation Stage kids were tiny!
Everybody loved it.
The long journey proved useful as the actors were able to do a line run on the new Robin Hood play while I had the easy job of dealing with the motorways!
I guess we are back in the thick of it now as the phone is melting and the emails are pouring in.
Our two plays for the young, "Billy Beware!" and "Not such an Ugly Duckling" are in demand, particularly as schools and nurseries are responding to the Government's "anti-bullying" and "safety" initiatives.
At this rate I shall be lucky to find the time to write any more.
