24 Oct Reviews of last week
Today in drama we started in the morning with listening to audience reviews of Messages of Love and Hate on Thursday night at Leatherhead Theatre. Brandon and various cast member read the reviews including Rachel Barnett who wrote the play and Andrea. Rachel said the audience should work out for themselves what they thought the show was about. Andrea said she liked in general but offered some helpful improvements for if we do it in the future. We then had lunch, during the break we said goodbye to one of our volunteers Sharlott known as Charlie she now had a job locally.
In the afternoon we started be watching a rough copy of a film of the show made by Chris Crane. Then we continued with looking at the Reviews. This time including one my mother and Luke Tye’s mum as well. My mum said she liked the performance but did not understand quite a lot of it as did her friends and other audience members. Finally we saw some pictures taken by our Photographer Ed Fullylove of the rehearsals and the show itself we all like them.
When we got home I showed the Hemmet House users a slideshow of pictures taken by Andy Newbold they were good as well.
Last but not least some of the group including myself are involved in a project with English Touring Opera and English National Ballet starting at the Bridge on Thursday and Friday of this week and Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next with the performance on November 2nd at Leatherhead Theatre in the evening.
