Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.


We moved the show to the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts in Dover (an elegantly refurbished movie theatre) for the final production on Saturday, Oct. 20 - We were in there from noon until 10 PM, rehearsing, setting the stage, rigging sound & lights, going over entrance and exit routes, etc., etc. - a grueling day..!! It all turned out to be worth it, though, as we sold out the orchestra section and a few balcony seats..!! The director said we may actually have made a little money on this one..!!

Several of the kids became rather emotional when we circled up before the show - they were soooo sad that it was nearly over - I think they would have liked to keep on doing it for a month..!! But, they are children, after all, and it's all about them - they were brilliant..!! And one old "dwarf wrangler" is, sadly, out of a job (snif, snif)... Someone asked me if I would do it again, meaning work with the Children's Theatre, and I said, "In a heartbeat!" The kids were such fun to work with, even when they were misbehaving, and that was quite often..!! Helped keep an old man on his toes, and feeling young(er)..!!

What an experience..!!

Sounds like a grand time! and yeah, it does always seem like something dies when a play ends its run..part of why the theater is an addiction. Once you get the hobbit, er, habit of acting...
