Mad Moments was performed at Marciac, Letoure, Sainte Dode and Boudrac. The latter is a new venue for the English Theatre Company and has splendid facilities even if the stairs do creak! Our audiences were good and their applause and appreciative comments made all the time spent rehearsing and learning words and moves worthwhile. Everyone played their part well in spite of coughs, sneezes and various aches and pains. No-one actually ‘broke a leg’ and there were no casualties - apart from a broom!
Now it is nearly Christmas and everyone is preparing for that but also looking forward to the next production. What will it be? No-one knows as yet but I am sure it will be greeted with the same enthusiasm and dedication as the last one.
Sadly, Dave Barney, a founder member of the Company and a kind and generous sharer of his theatrical expertise will not be taking part in the next production. Paula Latuske will not be there either to capably carry out the administration work involved in running the Company and putting on its shows. They have both returned to England for a life of, we hope not too adventurous, travelling and seeing the world.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with many happy ‘Mad Moments’.
