Followspot

Just about got away with that one. Due to the lack of a decent sight I was a little iffy on it. Also managed to find the quick release all gel feature – a bloody annoying one which ensures a small panic to put the gels back in and remove the blackout before the cue. […]

Oklahoma – FOH Sound

Hurray I managed not to make a balls up of the sound. A few mistakes here and there – but then that’s to be expected considering I’d managed to make myself a bit nervous over it (don’t know why – I’ve done bigger gigs in the past). The only difference really was new director and […]

Panto News

Oh dear looks like the first nights going to be a bit ropey from us – which is semi-alright as its a Tuesday night and cheap tickets anyway. So the audience must expect some slip ups. Why is this? Well because we’ve just learnt that Sunday is the technical and dress rehearsal – as far […]
