Bring it on!

The script is written and has been passed around to various people for approval; the first read through was a success but in a quiet, thoughtful way; the business plan has been written and rewritten.  This week was our appeal for help!  First stop, the drama group…

It’s quite a scary thing asking for help, and also asking people to believe in an idea that has only been between two people up until now.  At least we haven’t been asking for money too!  Thankfully, we have some good friends, who although looking shocked by what we planned to do, have come through and are offering to help.  Fantastic and a big thank you!  We are very lucky to have some very talented friends as well, some of whom are actors, others photographers, tech-y types and many who are just willing to lend a hand.

Next stop was to hand the booking form in and as of 11am this morning the theatre booking form was handed over and it all became real.  We are putting a play on in October!  Website will be up soon, casting next…

To act or not to act…?

Not so long ago I mentioned that one of my ambitions this year was to put a play on.  My talented boyfriend was writing the script and I was to produce it.  There was a slight misunderstanding because I started sending out enquiries about theatres to hire etc and he turned and looked at me and said, “I didn’t know you were actually serious about this.”

I am very serious about this.  Confidence darling!  All the signs are pointing towards doing this.  Well now, at the end of January the script is finished and this morning I received an email from the theatre saying that they had a cancellation for 6 months from now.  The universe is working with us to put this play on.  The universe obviously wants to see our names up in lights…I can almost smell the greasepaint already!

Can it be done though?  Can we physically put together a play in 6 months?  Things seem to be saying that we can.  First script read throughs coming up soon!
