Backstage glimpses

There hasn’t been much time for blogging this week. An hour and a half of physiotherapy every day has resulted in a knee that doesn’t crack or pop anymore which is wonderful but it’s community theatre that has really cut into my time. We’ve rehearsed every night this week and tonight is the first time we’ve been home before 10:00. Why so busy? Because tomorrow night is opening night!

The play is W.O. Mitchell’s The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon and Richard plays Wullie himself, a role that has him onstage almost the entire time. I, on the other hand, have a very small role so I spend a lot of time backstage.

Theatre looks very different from the back side so I thought I’d share a few glimpses of my backstage world with you tonight.


The story takes place in the 1930s. Look at some of the things we found in local barns and workshops!







Don’t touch anything on the prop table unless it’s yours and make sure everything is back in place after each performance!

Rubber chickens and microphones! What next?

With five performances over the next two weekends, life isn’t going to settle down for awhile yet!
