This lovely shot of me from a very old Christmas is something that always brings back nostalgia of Christmas for me. I think our show is missing the magic of Christmas!
What does Christmas mean to your character?
What would happen if your character lost/took over Christmas?
We need to find that spark (no pun intended) to turn our show, into a CHRISTMAS show.
If you have any old pictures or memories post them on here!
"Movies will make you famous; Television will make you rich; But theatre will make you good."
This quote to me, is exactly what I think about theatre. To perform live to an audience is a challenge as one mistake the audience will click it with camera you can redo the scenes. However saying this does not mean Film and Tv is easy I just think theatre is more of a challenge.
What does everyone think of this quote?
I think after the matinee that went on today going onto the evening performance I noticed the complete change of energy throughout the two shows that we done today it was really good the amount of energy that everyone brought to the evening show and the audience interaction and playing around with our scenes really pulled off well, plus we also got On My Way perfect for the first time!
In my opinion I would say that evening performance was by far the best show that we have done so far due to the amount of commitment that we put into it and the responses that the audience gave to us when they were reacting to what was going on.
What do you guys think? Do you think it went well? Was it the best show so far? Please disqus what you guys think
Well done tonight, to everyone there was such an improvement from the matinee of this morning. I think it’s important that we clock why made the performances different and what we done different that made for a better performance.
For me one of the things that turned around this evenings performance was the prep we done in the hour before. We had a buzz about the room when people where running scenes. People seemed to be much more in a zone of work. Also the simplest things like playing out to the audience made a lot more of a difference.
What do you think?
I think the show has been going well, seeing these responses Blake has out up is incredible. Also I was happy to be apart of the cast that went to the school Sam contacted to promote the show and hearing there responses, is the things we need to hear. This is because this is an original piece that only this company has done and to hear the public love the show is amazing. I’m really enjoying this show, I think we need to drive through the show and make it a phenomenal piece of theatre!
What does everyone think of the show and the run so far?
hehey guys, I was just wondering about commenting on tumblr on the colleges computers, because in the last week I was unable to comment on tumblr. I have asked the computer people in the college but they don’t know what is wrong with it. so I was just wondering, is there like a different internet user can us or do I need to download something, i am just confused.
Hi Steam punkers, photos look great and can’t wait to see the show.
For those who are finding their voices are running out of steam and are sore, dry or husky, you will find taking manuka honey with lemon juice and hot but not boiling water will help. Do yourself a flask and drink throughout the day and before a show. Pineapple juice is also good for the vocal chords.
Remember lots of water and slow releasing energy foods. Avoid energy drinks, fatty foods and quick fix energy boosters like chocolate etc. Eat fruit and make sure you rest up between shows where possible.
Look after your tools and they will serve you well. Good luck for tomorrow’s show and look forward to seeing you all perform
Last Thursday when the ‘Elderly People’ came to see the show they asked me to come round today so they could all tell me what they thought, and they absolutely LOVED IT. They obviously know me better than anyone but they were full of praise for the whole company which i think is just fantastic. I got given a card by one of the women there today and also tin of celebrations for us all to share tomorrow which they all contributed too which i thought was very sweet of them to do. They were very surprised with the whole set, the costumes and the talent we have within the company. I told them that they were unlucky not too see the show with all the flying in, but they just said ‘even without the flying it was still a brilliant show’.
But yeah, i just thought everyone should know that even people who are between the ages of 70-90 loved the show which i think we should be pleased with. So tomorrow im gonna bring in the sweets which we can all share equally! Hope everyone has had a good two days recovery and are all raring and ready to get back on the set tomorrow and perform again!!
See you all tomorrow!! :)

I will leave individual messages on your personal Tumblr sites letting you know exactly what you need to complete on UCAS. I will be in the office on Thursday if you want to come and see me regarding anything.
I have returned your UCAS to you tonight. Please ask Ashleen in the office for your BTEC registration number. You need to put this on your application and then send it again. I think everything else has been completed. If you can get this done tomorrow I will send it off.
