The last shows at the Boo were so wonderful. It was great to finish the tour here with full, enthusiastic audiences on Thursday and Friday evening. There was a really lovely atmosphere, and it was so much nicer to put the show to bed in its home space rather than at the other end of the country followed by a huge drive. Equally lovely were the school shows. We haven’t had too many school performances in the past at the Boo, but this was great – 3 full shows, all with very engaged and appreciative students. One group had previously visited during the making of the show, so they had seen the puppets and masks whilst they were being built. It makes so much sense to open up the work that we do in this way to local schools. For a creative teacher, it’s such a great resource.
The end of a tour is always a little bit sad, especially so when the performers have worked together so well. It’s great that everyone is keen to do it again next year. I think we’ve all laid a good enough foundation that the next tour can be just as much fun, and can hopefully reach some new audiences.
And now for Deep Time Cabaret……..
