Ann Cullis printed 100 programme sheets for our Remembrance event on Monday night. There were only 12 left at the end. And I’m not even certain that all the cast would have taken one away since they each had their own full scripts. The Elwin Room was a buzz of people fifteen minutes before the official opening of the doors. We had to lay out two more rows of seats .
After the presentation, nothing but rapturous and admiring praise for the readers and singers. “They must have been working on this for months,” several people said. “They are so professional.” ” Their timing is immaculate.” “They work so well together.” “Everyone reads so well.”
All of this was totally deserved. But the audience was mislead.
The wonderful cast had just one rehearsal for Returning We Hear the Larks.
I will post up other comments as they come in.
