We’ve been rehearsing for this year’s production (As You Like It – buy your tickets early!) for a month or so now, but this year we’ve been remarkably kind to the cast and booked indoor rehearsal space. This luxury is all very well, but a rehearsal room that is not only dry and light, but also has a bar is not something we’re used to.
So, getting out to Mount Ephraim this past Sunday really brought it home that preparations are under way for another year and there are only a couple of months left before the show opens.
Anyone who has been involved with one of these productions in past years will remember (sometimes with fondness) the Sunday morning rehearsals. In memory they are sunny, unhurried convivial occasions and this first Sunday of the season didn’t disappoint.
Here’s hoping the weather stays with us…
