Hi everybody

Opening night is now only just over a week away, and everything is looking great. The set is built and we are working on the lights and other technical bits.

I understand that ticket sales are going very well. If you haven’t bought yours yet, you probably ought to do so fairly quickly.

Although preparations generally are going very well, there are a few matters that we could use some extra help with. If you can possibly help with any of these, we would be extremely grateful.

Firstly, there are a few gaps in the helpers rota. As you know, a successful production depends on the help of a well-oiled team behind the scenes, and that includes offering excellent hospitality to our visitors.

The attached rota will give you an idea of the specific gaps that we need to fill. If you can help with any of them, please either respond to this e-mail, or you could contact Ann Hohenkerk direct at hohenkerk@aol.com

Secondly we need somebody to operate the sound for us on Saturday night. This is a very important task, but not a difficult one (just a matter of following the script and pressing a button at the right moment) but attendance at one or two rehearsals beforehand would be essential. Give me a call if you would like to know more.

Finally, in order to complete the splendid set, we need a couple of fireside chairs. The style is not important, and they don’t even need to match, so long as they could pass (at a distance and in subdued lighting) for the right period, which is around 1914. Please let me know if you have something that you think would be suitable.

These last-minute details are not unusual, but I will sleep much more soundly at night once we have them sorted. So don’t be shy, drop me a line and enjoy that warm, fuzzy feeling knowing that you have contributed towards a terrific production.

With best wishes
