Eight glorious years ago we devised our own version of Alice in Wonderland to perform in gardens around Gloucestershire and Buckinghamshire, as well as schools in Colchester. It was quirky and colourful and made the audiences chuckle...and I like to think was a little philosophical. (We still quote the Tweedles line: "Everything's connected!") Looking back at these photos, I can't help but grin- with the memories they evoke- but also the pride I feel for these actors who were teenagers then and are now pursuing their careers in the big wide world. We meet up regularly to catch up and reminisce...putting your passion into a shared project for an intense week is one of the most bonding experiences you can come across I think, and a brilliant training for the profession!
I am super excited about the summer ahead- being immersed in one of the best shows to put on in the summer: Shakey's very own 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'! We have a mixture of actors in the cast so far: some who've done the summer show before, and those who don't quite know what they are in for!
