A slightly more eventful first preview than we planned - with a fire alarm stopping the show (a lot of the audience really did think that was part of the script) and an audience member fainting (nothing to do with the play, but a lot to do with a very hot room).  We had to stop twice, second time for almost half an hour - but the cast and crew did brilliantly, the audience member is well and resting, and pretty much everyone was able to stay to the end and give a rousing curtain call to everyone involved. Congratulations to everyone involved on great professionalism.  Would be good to have a little less reason to improvise tomorrow though!

Well, we had a lovely night going through everything for tomorrow's first village social. What a hoot, the hall is looking gorgeous thanks to me - Yvonne. And fair play - everyone's pooled together under Lawrence's fabulous organisational hand. Lisa Jen's artwork is still a bit of a wonder to me. Dave is on it for the security - and last I saw Jean, she was scrubbing away and unblocking a few u-bends.... And I'm sure I heard little Dion and his quirky friends give their own rendition of ging gang golly-golly-gooly wish wash outside sometime....

Finally caught up with the Catherine in rehearsal with some of our young performers - a truly talented and dedicated group of teenagers from Penygraig.

Great fun watching her teach them games to help develop their expression, and talking to Miranda from Valleys Kids about the other projects they're working on. 

Short, cold evenings are much more fun with a group like that!

Can't wait to see them in action when we come to the SOAR centre on Tuesday - break a leg, guys*!


* Please don't break a leg.

Great to see the show in tech today.  A fast and tight tech session with lots of laugh out loud moments as the full costumes finally revealed themselves!  Extraordinary underwear galore!

Today, we the Cae Bach committee had a run through for the upcoming event. lisa Jen made wonderful stuffed chicken thighs. Jean made her signature dish - a spanish tortilla. I, Yvonne - provided a wonderful salad and Lawrence rounded it all off with Bretton Cup cakes... Dave provided much musings and dion enjoyed the fruit of the feast.

The slash curtain and the pagan wreaths are up. The Cae Bach banner lies in wait on the stage. A heated exchange is taking place about the ideal placement of the mirrorball. A trombone - valves freshly oiled - plays in the dressing room. Someone is considering their second cupcake. Through the enormous glass wall clouds roll above the fields of Rudry. A theatrical storm is approaching...

So today we leave our home in the WNO building and are off to Rudry Village Hall for production week. My left-over chinese take away is packed. Am still excited after the rehearsal on Saturday when the final piece of the jigsaw fell into place. Looking forward to seeing Cai and Tessa's design and costumes underneath Colin's lights. We also seem to be blessed by the most patient, hard-working yet friendly production team. Perhaps, however, their wrath is yet to be unleashed. Let the madness begin...

Everyone looking forward to tech week, previews and opening over the next few days.  I missed Friday's runthrough as I've been in Warsaw, but heard that it is all pulling together well.  Lots of visual stuff is under wraps to keep the surprise element of the show for audiences, but if we don't win some kind of an award for best decapitated dog in Wales I'm going to be very upset!!
