Here we are in San Antonio, the 90 degree heat hasn’t slowed us down and we have had a great audience reaction to the show, I would like to say a special hello to Drew and his mum, who came to chat with us after last nights show. It was his first ever Shakespeare play and he loved it, I asked him if he understood it all and he was very honest and said not all of it, but that he was with us the whole way through! What more can we ask! Here’s to Drew!!!
A little catch up – we had the most fantastic weekend – I for one am madly in love with Chicago! We travelled there in style – after a great show, we got into our Limo! – we had bought a few supplies for the journey, and so the party weekend started as we left Notre Dame on route for Chicago.
The whole weekend was great fun, and we managed to see a bit of the city, including an architectural boat trip along the river, art Museums, Millenium Park with it’s ‘Bean’ and Jun Kaneko Sculptures, a trip to Boys Town and to Shaw’s Crab House – we were spoilt rotten! I also think a spot of shopping was done, but we shall keep the names of the ‘over – participants’ secret to protect their modesty!!
On Monday morning, we set off to the airport, for the next part of our trip. Unfortunately the flight was delayed for an hour so we saw slightly more of the airport than we would have liked but eventually arrived in San Antonio Texas…….
Well what can I say – it feels like we have only just started and now we are off again. Tonight after the show we are being driven to Chicago because we need to be out of the way because something bigger than us is happening! – some kind of football game, I think, not sure what the big fuss is about!!!! – I AM JOKING!!! Of course I know what all the fuss is about – and good luck tomorrow for the game! We will be thinking of you.
We have had a couple of great shows and we are looking forward to another tonight!
Myself and Anna were teaching today at Saint Joseph High School, and it was great to hear the enthusiasm from the students, who had seen the play, it means we are doing our job and makes it all worthwhile!
We are off to San Antonio on Monday, and looking forward to it after a restful party over the weekend!

Well here we are, and very excited to be opening the show tomorrow night! We arrived in Notre Dame last Saturday after 4 weeks of rehearsal in Brixton, it is crazy to think that we only met as a group just over 7 weeks ago – it feels like years!!!!!
We arrived exhausted after the stresses of rehearsals and the flight and went straight back in to rehearsals – after our first full work day here we met this little fellow outside Washington Hall, who basically summed up how we were feeling at the time!!!
However we are now rested and refreshed and ready for our first night!
