You leave them alone for 5 minutes…

Ron thought it would be a good idea to have a whiteboard and calendar in the ODS, to convey useful information such as “what we’re rehearsing this week” or “when actors will be missing rehearsals” or…

Wot no dog?

Indeed.  Give a bunch of overgrown children a marker pen and whiteboard and you’ve only got yourself to blame really, Ron.

In the interests of open-ness and accurate finger-pointing it should be noted that this was not the work of an actor but of a member of the stage crew, who shall remain nameless.  Gordon does have a point though – it’s been a while since a dog featured in a post on this blog.

I'll be back

Eventually we did get some useful information.

Abstinence

With that much “abstinence” coming up we may need a bigger whiteboard.  Fear not though, loyal punter, none of us have anything planned for production week.  Not a thing, nada, zilch, zip, nothing at all.

Apart from putting on a show, of course – Ed.

Oh yes, that.  I knew there was something…

Bagshot House is starting to take shape.

Bagshot House

Looks like Colonel Craddock could do with getting the decorators in though.  Not to mention some doors.  Bonus point if you can spot part of the set from Virtue Triumphant there.

Like moths to a flame, actors are inexorably drawn to a stage set.  They just can’t stop themselves from getting up and performing (it’s called “rehearsing” – Ed).

Actors, acting

Just as well, really.  If they only did this sort of thing at home then the rest of us would never get to see it (what actors actually do get up to at home is their own business, of course, although we could probably sell tickets for that too).

We’ll find out what they’re up to when Secondary Cause of Death takes to the stage.  Whether Inspector Pratt manages to figure it out is another matter entirely!

Tell us what to do Ron Ron Ron, to do Ron Ron

Despite the very cold weather we have been having lately, rehearsals for Secondary Cause of Death are warming up nicely.

To do Ron Ron Ron

Some brave actors are even starting to rehearse from memory without their comfort scripts, while others are yet to get past the “laughing at their own character’s jokes” phase.

Coming soon - Secondary Cause of Death
