If we were to write down a list of our Aims here at MAC, the top one would be to put on a darn good show! The list would be a long one – including having fun and striving for artistic excellence. But alongside our ‘theatrical aims’ there is an even more important one – to raise money for a charity through each of our shows. This year we are supporting UK Sepsis Trust. Please read some more about this here.
We are also performing this show in memory of a very lovely, very special and very talented lady. Becca is so missed by all of us and we are very proud to be performing this show in memory of her. Nia has written a tribute to her which you can find here – please do have a read.
Things have been ticking along nicely. We are slowly, but surely, getting our heads round the madness of Into the Woods. And then, just last week, something ridiculously exciting happened. It wasn’t the fact that we managed a stagger-run of Act 1 (it was definitely more of a ‘stagger’ than a run, but we got through it!); or the fact that our wonderful creative team arrived with bags full of costumes for us to try on; or the fact that we almost had the whole cast in the same room, at the same time. No, these things paled into insignificance against THE exciting thing that happened. These arrived in the post:
which means, tickets are officially on sale for the show!!
So, if you fancy coming along, you can get your ticket now!! And how, I hear you cry, does one do that?! Well, if you are lucky enough to know one of our lovely cast, you can get a ticket through them. Or you can follow this link:
And buy your tickets online. Imagine how excited we’ll be when we actually sell some?!
Today is the day! In 4 1/2 hours we are heading ‘Into the Woods’! The tea has been bought, the music has been hired, the creative team are raring to go and the cast? Well, we have ourselves the most phenomenal cast who, I am sure, are busy this morning getting their ‘Sondheim-on’ in preparation to learn the first notes of this masterpiece. Excited? Yep! Scared? Naturally! But there is no stopping us now….
