On The Road Again!

Hello!

After 3 weeks of splendid rehearsals in the incredible Cornish countryside Illyria’s Comedy of Errors is out on the road. Once again I’m lucky enough to be working with an amazing cast and on a completely bonkers play that is exhaustingly wonderful (for the cast at least). Every cast member has blink and you’ll miss it costume changes and the show (set in Mexico) comes complete with sombreros and its very own Mariachi band!

All the tour dates can be found by clicking HERE. If you’re planning on coming along then feel free to let me know on Twitter or by posting on my Facebook page. Below is a snap from the show, featuring Adriana, Luciana and Dromio. The black and flowery outfit I wear as Adriana is my favourite costume of this show and I love how the set glows in the setting sun!

That’s all for now,

Nicola

On the Subject of Scones

Hello!

I’m not going to lie to you. I was raised to prepare my scones the Cornish way. First the jam and then the cream. My many Devonian friends revile me for this culinary choice but I firmly believe that the Cornish way is the best way. As a very small child and later a teenager we holidayed in Cornwall and I always found it to be a glorious place. You can imagine my elation then (no hyperbole) when I discovered that my next show would be rehearsing in Cornwall for three weeks. Three weeks rehearsing within a stone’s throw of Land’s End.Oh and our accommodation has a view of the sea. And it’s a five minute walk to the beach. And there’s a surf school.

Oh and did I mention, the show I’m rehearsing? It’s a Shakespeare.

IN. HEAVEN.

That’s all for now,

Nicola

Mediaeval Mayhem and Witches of Oz

Hello!

This year has already got off to a cracking start with shows at the Mediaeval Banquet at The Abbeygate in Coombe Abbey going down a storm. There is a real team feeling to working at The Abbeygate and the cast are quite simply marvellous to work with.

Speaking of a great team, over the Christmas period I was back at the Blue Orange Theatre in Birmingham, taking on the role of the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz, working with a lovely group of people led by director Tina Hoffman. Christmas time can often provide a child’s first experience of theatre and it was lovely to hear the children reacting to twists and turns of the story, not to mention joining in on Follow The Yellow Brick Road! Such high energy shows can often be hard work, but when you have a great supportive team to work with and the audience reaction to feed off it makes it all worth while.

That’s all for now,

Nicola
