Saturday Photo Hunt - Music

Photo Hunt

Better late than never.............

For those people who have only recently started to visit, I should mention here that I belong to a local amateur dramatic group. Every year, usually in February or thereabouts, (with the exception of this year, for reasons beyond our control) a rather raucous, rowdy and rude show is produced for the people in the neighbourhood, who all obviously love it as all 4 nights are a sell-out. This makes us enough money to help finance our summer productions at a local theatre which are a bit harder to sell.

The format of the Farrago, for this is what it is called, is usually supper of fish and chips (a British delicacy) followed by a short play, written by a member of the group, with help from the cast as rehearsals unfold, illustrated with well-known songs which have had the words ever so slightly slightly altered. Double (and sometimes triple) entendres abound. Great fun to do.

The last one was based on the writings of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and was called Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Crimson Cock. This may give you a clue as to the standard of the production.

When are you touring Vermont? And don't tell me "never." We need stuff like this! Please! We'd probably make millionaires out of you (we get desperate to get out in the winter).

I am so glad you commented at mine because I would have missed yours for sure. . . thought I had gone to all of them. . .

What a neat production to be a part of/just to be able to see in audience! I think it is wonderful things like this happen -- just wish it were closer to me now!

Great photo entries for this them. Again, thanks for coming to see mine.

Fun for the audience but I'll bet it's a lot of fun for the cast too.
I'm glad to hear that amateur theatrics are still going strong there.
