…but unlike Vera, we know where and we know when as Bluntisham Village Hall is transformed into Bagshot House for Secondary Cause of Death this coming Thursday, Friday and Saturday!
Set-up day was the usual hive of frenetic activity.
If you stand around long enough, eventually someone will put a cup of tea in your hand.
While Ash and Ron tried to figure out what was missing from this door frame, Nick removed a large gnome from beneath the stage.
We were pleased to see several of our younger members coming along to help with set-up. Of course, teenagers being what they are, there was a fair amount of this going on.
There were plenty of responsible adults around to set a better example.
Not this particular adult, though. Kids today, eh?
To be fair, the BaCStage Yoof did do a lot of useful work during set-up. They also did things like this:
…? Me neither.
“Cut an inch off the top of that door” he said. “How hard can it be?” he said.
Sometimes the first cut is not the deepest.
Was there a sighting of a handrail? Handrails are notoriously nervous and fickle beasts, no doubt because of the persecution they’ve suffered in recent years. Even the most patient of photographers knows better than to wait around for one – much better to set up a camera trap overnight.
We got one!
It’s been a year since we last erected the stage. At the time, Peter wrote some assembly instructions in permanent pen, then chalked in some instructions on how to use the instructions.
Despite this, he still managed to glue himself to the stage. Nick had to resort to drastic measures to free him.
If anyone finds Peter’s left foot, he’d like it back.
Thanks to everyone’s marvellous efforts we now have the stage set for a “killer” show:
The last word goes to director Ron:
Now for the village hall! We do hope you can join us.
