On Wednesday we had the Stage Newspaper and the Oldham Chronicle watching our production of I Love Oldham, both very important and both influential in different ways. The Chronicle is the local paper, the voice of Oldham for an age and a well respected source of news and views for the good people of Oldham. Their reviewer is a powerful figure in the theatre world within the borough, pointing a way through for audiences to experience the best of the arts.
The Stage is the nations theatre newspaper, read by professionals and picked up by funding bodies like Arts Council England. A nod from them and we might get some interest from other venues around the country looking for the next "bums on seats" production.
So, for the last two days, this puppet has been dangling on his string waiting for the masters.
I have got 2 seats sold for tonights show (24th May). If the reviewers like me I guarantee this time next week we will be sold out.
|Every night we ask the audience to leave contact details and comment on the show, he's an example.|
