A Note from the director:
We are so excited to be able to tour The Three Musketeers this summer. The pandemic has been tough for everyone in the arts and whilst we sadly had to cancel two earlier tours planned this year we were determined that we would get back to doing what we love as soon as possible.
We have had incredible support from our venues and audiences throughout lockdown. They have not only donated tickets from cancelled shows and joined the Friends of This is my Theatre, but have helped us to find alternative outdoor spaces for August and we just can’t thank them enough.
Whilst not touring during lockdown we kept busy! Ethan and Simon took work in a local care home and provided music to entertain the residents whilst they were unable to receive visitors. I offered free workshops for actors and lesson ideas to teachers looking for ways to engage students in theatre whilst lessons moved online. We also took to digital media creating an online performance of George & the Dragon and a special VE Day celebration project for Crawley Borough Council (see here)
Putting The Three Musketeers together has of course been challenging but to be honest I’ve loved it!
We are the first company in the UK to work with a fight director via video link and, as you will see from the show, Andy Ashenden and our actors have done an amazing job!
Whilst not performing in our usual settings we have tried to keep as much of what our audiences love about our shows and perhaps I’ve had too much time to think about this one as it is definitely the most challenging production we’ve ever staged! It combines my favourite shows I think; the fast paced, multi-role style costume changes of our adaptation of The Importance of Being Earnest, the puppetry of The Snow Queen and the wonderful music, of our Shakespeare’s. Simon has once again done an amazing job. From finding traditional songs to adapting and writing lyrics in both French and English using old folk songs as his source, his ability to bring the ideas in my head to life never cease to amaze me!
We are so looking forward to returning to the outdoor spaces of venues we have worked with previously as well as visiting new venues. We have worked hard to develop safe and Covid-19 secure practices for our return and were delighted to be mentioned in The House of Lords and be asked to share our risk assessments with councils, venues and artists looking to move events outside.
Being back in the rehearsal room has been wonderful. Working with Simon, Ethan and Hippolyte again has been tremendous fun and we truly hope that you enjoy the show!
