Dress Rehearsal

December 9, 2016


Thursday 8th December 2016

Another long day in the dark! we started the tech where we left off at 9am and after a lunch break did a run of the show, followed by a 7.40pm full dress run, make up and all. These feet are very tender now!

It’s a funny old world in the backstage corridors of the Derngate! Let’s hope its funny on stage too!

There were times in the tech when we stopped as the Beanstalk decided to have a few Diva strops, and a few stops to reset scenery, and throughout it all, on would come Pudsey and Sullivan and just wag their tails with the joy of being onstage with people and lights and perform like the perfect pro’s they are! A joy to behold!

We got through the evening full dress in good time. Yes there were a few “what’s next” moments, and the odd glitch. All changes were made, and we had some photographs taken by my old mate Graeme Braidwood for the theatre to display. Hoping some of those production shots will become available in this blog!

After the long day a visit to the pub and a chance to say Hello properly to the crew and stage management  here at The Royal & Derngate. There are a lot of them- and they did an amazing job making the magic happen.



Tomorrow we open at 2pm!
