" 3 Cheers For Open Air Theatres!"
The last Friday of the Olympics, a beaming guy in the audience at **Chester Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre**, stood up at the start of the play and yelled: " Let's have 3 Cheers for our Olympiads!!" , much to the delight of actors and audience alike..
AND I suppose this is an example of the wonderful warmth/intimacy ( not to say, the surprises!) created by/to actors/audience of theatre in the open.
Yesterday lunchtime, we took another trip to the Park, where we enjoyed a chat in the sunshine with the cast of the 2 plays now running: "Twelfth Night" and Glyn Maxwell's followup: " Masters are you mad?...The search for Malvolio".
A previous lunchtime ( a rainy one!) Director Alex Clifton ( on right in snap above) gave a spirited/ informative talk re his "directorship" of this company, assembled for a 6 week summer run in Chester.
And yesterday was a great idea to meet the talented and eloquent cast too. See them above!
