The end of April saw our run of Macbeth at St. George's Hall, in the beautiful concert room, as part of the Where There's A Will Shakespeare season at St. George's Hall. The production was really well received, and it was a joy to be involved. Thrilled that I get to keep working with the Chalice Productions gang as rehearsals start for next month's production of The Tempest!
The middle of the month saw a wonderful, and exciting, trip to the Cannes Film Festival. I was lucky enough to walk the red carpet, and see the premiere of Jodie Foster's new film, Money Monster, in the Grand Theatre Lumiere, which was brilliant. It was a thrill to see our film, The Con Game, advertised as part of Short Film Corner, and to see the posters for a film, Just Charlie, cast by a lovely friend of mine, Ben Cogan, in the festival. The (film) stars were out, and the weather was lovely! Congratulations to everyone involved on a brilliant festival - I hope to be able to attend again in future years!
More good news this month - Grand Dame Theatre are taking The Lionheart Phantom to The Greater Manchester Fringe Festival 2016. Can't wait to be Wendy again!
