A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM – Took place in our magical church last weekend, and was the most spectacular production so far. In addition to the “5 Reasons” each and every actor played their parts brilliantly, the feedback from each of the audiences was that they were amazed at how highly entertaining and professional it was. Full credit goes to Tessa Howell for her brilliant creativity in reducing this play to its pure essence and re-imagining it here in our church. Tessa adapted the script and had been struggling to recruit the cast for over a year. It was also no mean feat managing the scheduling of the rehearsals ; only on the final dress rehearsal the did she have a full cast!
Tessa always encouraged the cast to do their best and although you will probably find this hard to believe she did on occasion even shout at them, ensuring they played their role to their full potential. Tessa paid special thanks to David Kyle for his musical contribution and to Mike Patching for all his help with the stage, music and lighting. She says this is her last production and what a high to end on….. however we have a feeling that our sprite-like, inexhaustible and incorrigible director may be persuaded to do another small adult production, never say never – “Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
