Mostly for the Young'uns

A busy week with lots of "Billy Beware!" and "Ugly Duckling" is coming to a close. Well, almost, as we will be at Blackheath Halls this afternoon with "Aesop's Fables".
Thursday was a really special day we will not forget in a hurry. We had the pleasure of performing on the open day at the Bagshot Children's Centre (2 performances of "Billy" to packed audiences). But what made it so memorable was the official opening of the Centre by the Countess of Wessex, who delighted everyone by visiting the children in their classes.
I was the "roady" for the day and took great pleasure in seeing so many kids and parents enjoying themselves. The Centre had laid on many treats; Bouncy Castle, Go Carts, Punch and Judy, Lego Building, Smoothie Making, Face Painting, Balloon Modeling, to name just a few. Oh, and everything was free including the food.
It was a deserving success, and I and the actors thank you for our bag of "goodies",. Perfect for the grandchildren when they go swimming.
