Oh baby, it's cold outside!
We actors are a hardy bunch, you know. Despite the recent cold snap we have been beavering away like busy little beavers, putting the final touches to our next production:
BaCStage presents “Dick Whittington and his Cat”
a pantomime by Sean Baker and Bill Handley
Thursday 19th, Friday 20th and Saturday 21st February 2015 at Bluntisham Village Hall
7.30pm each evening, and a matinee on Saturday at 2.30pm
Tickets on sale from Bluntisham Service Station
It’s less than 2 weeks to opening night! Oh yes it is! Tickets are selling well – very well, in fact. My sources tell me that Saturday night is all but sold out! There are still some left for Thursday, Friday and the matinee on Saturday, so if you’ve not got yours already get along to Blunty Service Station and bag yourself a pew or two. Tickets are a bargain at £5 for kids, £7.50 for “big kids” (or, as they’re sometimes known, “adults”).
I am reliably informed that the recent inclement conditions have not had a detrimental effect on last-minute preparations. (You wot? – Ed) Everything’s going to plan, despite the cold weather. (Why didn’t you say so? – Ed) So much so, in fact, that Nick our set-builder extraordinaire found time to go out into the snow and indulge in one of his favourite pastimes. No, not that one… I mean photography:
I’d like to point out that this picture of the ODS was taken on a non-rehearsal night. Despite some rumours to the contrary, we do allow the actors to put the lights on for rehearsals. We even let them have the heating on when the weather’s as cold as this, and thanks to the ancient wonder that is the ODS heating it’s at least five degrees warmer on the inside.
Fortunately Bluntisham Village Hall is blessed with a far more comprehensive heating system, so if you’ve been feeling the chill lately what better way to warm up on a cold winter’s night than to come along and see our next show? Have I mentioned that we have a show coming up? Our panto, Dick Whittington and his Cat, is on from February 19th to 21st, tickets available from Bluntisham Service Station. What’s that you say – I did mention that already? Well, now I’ve mentioned it again!
