It’s all gone quiet over there

You might be thinking that the lack of activity on this blog in recent weeks points to a lack of activity at BaCStage towers.  Let me assure you though, dear reader, that nothing could be further from the truth.  It is precisely because there is so much going on that no-one has had time to blog about it lately – that’s my story, at any rate, and I’m sticking to it.

As previously mentioned a while ago, we are staging not one, not two, but three (yes, three!) plays this autumn – A Talk in the Park, In Need of Care and Night at the (Brick) Museum.  Being a relatively small group with a relatively high proportion of gluttons for punishment, several of us have been working on more than one of these simultaneously as actor, director, sound & lighting, stage and set, publicity and other things besides, and come set-up day it’ll be the usual “all hands on deck” to get the stage and set constructed in the village hall (if you’re in the area next month and fancy lending us a hand…)

Except of course, on this occasion, it’s “stage and sets“, as across the three plays the action takes place in a park, a barn, a house, a brick museum and a shrubbery.  How will we ever combine such a wide range of sets onto our one compact-and-bijou stage?  Seriously, how will we?  This is something that the best BaCStage minds are still grappling with.  Of course, in the greatest theatre tradition, “it’ll be alright on the night”.  If you want to know exactly how we manage to pull off this tardis-like feat of space-wrangling you’ll just have to come along and see for yourself.  Or wait for the show photos to appear on this site next month, of course.  Or better still, do both – come along in person and be amazed, then re-live the experience in the comfort of your own home!  Tickets will be on sale soon.

In the meantime, with only three weeks to go, preparation work continues apace as you can see:

WorkingHard

Now, I have used the buses analogy on this blog before (nothing for ages, then two come along at once).  With that in mind, hot on the heels of this post (moderately warmly on its heels, at least) I will soon be introducing you to the casts of our three plays – watch this space!
