Northampton Day One!

December 6, 2016



Monday 5th December 2016

Our first day at The Derngate – met up at the rehearsal room and had a “meet & Greet” with the very welcoming company of The Royal & Derngate- this picture shows just HALF the room, so you can see how many of the Derngate Staff and Management joined us!

For Double Doggy Delight, we were joined by Sullivan today- Sullivan is Pudsey’s buddy and will be joining us for the run.

Their routine is just amazing. Total show stopper!

We rehearsed all the scenes with the children or Juves as we call ’em. This very talented bunch of kids hail from the Mayhew School of dance. We rehearsed all the scenes involving the children twice. One for each troupe.

When not required we found a very luxurious place to relax, the cafe/bar belonging to the theatre- sofas, big armchairs and cushions, and a huge cheese counter!

We rehearsed until 6pm running scenes with numbers, and meanwhile in the Derngate proper the scenery was being unloaded and the fit up was beginning, supervised by Eamonn. I’ll be calling in backstage for the first time at lunchtime to sort out my Quick Change room which has been built on Stage Left.
