So the time has come for me to do a post show sign off. It’s now a week since we did our last show and bid a fond farewell to The Sunset Strip. Can you believe that? A week already?
But we had THE BEST TIME.
We knew that we had fun with the show in rehearsals anyway, but getting it on stage with the set and our live band just took it to that next level that we needed. And when the audience came in, again, it took us to a new level.
My shoutout goes to Friday and Saturday night’s audiences who were on their feet, joining in, heckling in the appropriate places – it’s hard to explain if you haven’t been on stage to experience it, but energy like that gives the cast a new lease of life, an extra push 👍
And it’s nothing special, more for my lovely cast… but I put together a little backstage video like last year. My plan was to have much more footage so I could do an interesting behind the scenes tour…but it was such a busy show, I spent very little time with my camera: so I failed MASSIVELY with that plan 😂 But at least I tried 😂
There’s not much more to say other than a massive thankyou.
A thankyou to the incredibly talented cast for being a joy to share the stage with. A thankyou to the creative team and backstage helpers for being equally brilliant and hilarious. A thankyou to the SICK band we had (and I’m sure there will be several audience members who join in with this thanks too, as the eye candy was spectacular). And last but by no means least, our RIDICULOUSLY amazing Director and MD, Louise Dension and Jim Lunt. An incredible duo of whom so many have the upmost respect. Can’t wait to work with you again ❤️️
And now, I sign off. It’ll be back to my regular blog posts from now on, for the first time in 4 months! God knows what I’m going to talk about, but thankyou to all those who have tuned in to HSAP’s ‘Rock Of Ages’ posts 😘
Don’t Stop Believin’ 🤘
