Hi, everyone. Just like a large turd, I dropped this into another thread, so apologies if you have seen it before and responded (already flushed!).
If anyone is interested, I am currently involved with a new production of Wyrd Sisters, to be performed at Kelvedon in Essex at the end of October / beginning of November 2008. Details can be found on our website at: www.kelvedonplayers.co.uk
Our first night is on Friday 24th October, then on Saturday 25th, Friday 31st (Halloween - when we are asking our audience to come dressed in Halloween costume!), and Saturday 1st November (also a Fancy Dress Night - come dressed as your favourite Terry Pratchett character!).
It's been a real hoot working on the rehearsals, and we have arranged a number of other surprises for our audiences. TP and Simon Briggs have been invited, naturally, but I'd be staggered / gobsmacked / honoured if they turned up!
I'd also be very interested to find out how other amateur groups have put a production of this kind together, or to hear your views on any TP production you have watched from the audience.
I'll let you know in November how it went for us - wish us luck (or just say "break a leg")!! Whatever happens, as Duke Felmet would say, we're just - "a bunch of funny fellows in tights, but people seem to like it!"
