A brief return to Candleford this afternoon as I met up with Dorcas (Lyn), Mrs Gubbins (Ros) and Michelle (from Willowspin and MagicFolk) recording a song from Candleford. Michelle, who wrote much of the music and songs for the plays had a studio set up. The recordings made me laugh, because at one point Michelle had so many tracks of us singing all at the same time, it sounded like a whole army of minions ?
I am so glad that I took the time to look at at the description of the ‘H2Dance – 20 Strangers’ workshop that initially popped up on my Facebook feed. The performances, being hosted by Louise Cole and run by Hanna and Heidi at Norwich Arts Centre today sound brilliant fun.
It was a long time coming. I originally auditioned for a part in Lark Rise to Candleford back in October 2015. The production was delayed on two occasions, but it was well worth the wait as it broke the box office record for the highest number of tickets sales for an opening play of the season at Sewell Barn Theatre.
