Calamity Jane reflections

Well its 1 week since Calamity Jane finished. Firstly it was great going to back to Bradford Players after missing their last few shows, and after 6 months of rehearsals i really felt back in the Players family.

Put this together with a last minute drop out, costumes arriving at dress rehearsal and an impossible score, I think Acorn Productions have pulled this one out of the bag. It’s been a pleasure for me and my wife Amy to be part of the Acorn family, work with some talented people and make some new friends whom we look forward to working with in the future.
