I know, you’re all waiting for blogs on Idina Menzel and Ghost the Musical – I know you’re all refreshing the blog every five minutes and sighing in frustration when nothing comes up then getting ready to throwing the computer out the window when I blog about something completely different. Please don’t open that window – but bare with me as I will blog about them – hopefully within the week. It’s been a tad busy (unusally) and things are going on the wayside.
Anyways, as you know, I have a very special relationship with Chichester Festival Theatre. One of the best shows I’ve seen this year was Singin’ In The Rain there in August and next week I venture back down there to see Sweeney Todd with Micheal Ball playing the title role. Next year it celebrates it’s 50th anniversary. It doesn’t seem 10 years since I had my first driving lesson to a rehearsal for the youth theatre’s first main house production to celebrate 40 years (was not the best and it’s been wiped from history…. A Story About Listening was a bit of a disaster….). Over the past 10 years it’s gone from strength to strength moving effortlessly away from becomming an ice rink as some Chichester residents were suggesting for it to become when it was going through some troubles.
To mark it’s milestone, the theatre are releasing a book, and much like how the theatre was founded is asking the public to help with it. This video explains it. My name’s going to be printed in it, if you value local theatre or Chichester, get yours in it too.
