29/8/10 Rehearsal

We managed to block the whole show today – with the cast members who were there – so a successful rehearsal!

22/8/10 Readthrough

We met in St Mary’s Chuirch Hall in Potters Bar for our readthrough. The cast read through the script while Andrew G and myself revealed as much as we can about the set and other intricacies. We were then joined by Daniel Dibdin who took us through the musical numbers. I’m delighted that Dan is joining us again as Musical Director this year. It was a long day, but we got through everything and it went very well.
