Schools are back but, sadly, live theatre is still being viewed with caution. The enquiries are coming in and so are a few bookings, but we are a long way from normality. There is a real reluctance to commit this term although Summer is looking more hopeful. I have to leave for a little while, but will be back to add more soon: Until shortly, Back now, Couldn't let lunch get cold. Now where was I? Oh yes, complaining as usual. Not all is bad though. We have done some pre-recorded shows online, and some interactive presentations and these have kept the momentum going as well as the wolves from the door. We have also used the lull to add to our Workshops repertoire. Until things get back into full swing, I will leave you with a an image from our production "World War II" as it seems appropriate in Covid times!!!

Can it really have been five months since I last posted a blog? Yes, sadly because I have had nothing cheery to write about. However, I am using a different computer, not new, but certainly more modern than the old steam model I have used hitherto. Of course, that in itself presented numerous problems. I mean, who remembers if it was your first school, pet or mother's maiden name that was your most memorable choice? Anyway, I am now up and running. Unfortunately, we have not seen a school since well before Christmas when one enterprising school took the plunge and booked us for a whole day. The kids and the teachers had a wonderful time forgetting for a brief period all the doom and gloom that has been inflicted on them, and besets us all. We are forever hopeful and, whilst recognising this virus is here to stay and, eventually, we will accept and learn to live with it, we are maintaining our presence with all our plays and workshops. We are also branching into online taaching. With the benefit of a qualified drama and piano teacher, we are able to offer one-to-one or small group lessons using Zoom. If this appeals, please get in touch through the website. This is a picture of our teacher on Zoom (not the furry one!). This is all I have for you at the moment, but I promise to get back soon.
