Much Ado About Messina And The Cosa Nostra

Posted by Fhodder in Fhodder's Blog, 30 July 2012 · 768 views

Much Ado About Messina And The Cosa Nostra I’ve been doing some research into the Messina of Much Ado, trying to understand the context of the play, especially with regard to the director’s suggestion that Leonato might be played as a sort of Godfather figure.

Help Needed From Head To Toe

Posted by topsociety in topsociety's Blog, 05 March 2011 · 428 views

Rehearsals are going well for our next production, La Cage aux Folles, but we were not prepared for the amount of wigs there would be.  If anyone in the Northern area has a wig stand they can loan us, please respond to this comment.  We also need teletone taps either with the shoes or taken off, to be returned after production week.
