Who knew a cheeky blog entry could be such divilment?
No one! That’s who!
Well, it’s 7.10 am and I’m taking a quick break from the last hour of PRing and proof-reading our programme for the printers tomorrow a bit, to keep you guys in the loop. …Nothing beats the peaceful sounds of rubbish bins being emptied by the somber clanking and clunking, metal machines, I’ll tell you that for nothing! So now, to the clicking of the keys on my defunct keyboard, my belly begins to rumble! Needless to say this early hour of work, and trying to come up with innovative ways to talking about the show online has lead to a few distractions…
These were taken at about 6 this morning!
So Pierce Cunnane really did an amazing job thus far with our beautiful programmes -which (I apologise in advance) will be a euro or two each! But wow! A sneaky peak you say? NEVER! Come see our show, this is beautiful stuff right here! He’s the designer, also plays for this band http://www.facebook.com/Underwaterpicnic, and has been working tirelessly with Mr. Martin to keep this thing on track.
So printing thus far was a bit of a nightmare, but our posters are here! A3s, A0s in all their MAMMOTH glory!
These things are monsters! I could roll around in them, or have Muireann use them as a duvet! Getting them places is the problem. I gotta get three of these bad boys to Cork, one to Kerry and three to Dublin! including all our little A5s, which I have now dubbed the bugs of the posters. 5000 flyers is a glorious thing indeed! I bathed in them. No, I didn’t, they haven’t arrived yet, but that would be cool. Paper cut nation. So publicity has become a big priority now. Dad is just kicking ass, with ideas for it. Signs outside for coming into town and whatnot!
That and costumes actually… We found bronzer in the bathrooms in college. Blaney’s coat now glitters slightly… Somewhere out there is a pissed off pale girl that I owe a cuppa!
I also got to check out Canavan’s pub! Small, but god, that’ll be a fun gig! Just 20 people dallying around, having the laugh, in this nook upstairs! I’m thinking that’ll be our best show what with the intimacy. We’ve a three day get-in rehearsal tomorrow in the BOI, which I’m really looking forward to. Please God that’ll be where the miracles happen. We’re a few days behind with blocking, though we got to do our first run the day before yesterday! Thankfully, Sam is taking over with some scenes, and polishing stuff. God, a fresh pair of eyes makes all the difference.He’s got some keen eye. To the extent that I wish he was more publicly acclaimed within the show. I CAN’T WAIT for his season directing. Interesting to say the least…
By the way, how hilarious is this?
Eimear Durnin posted it to me on facebook. This thing has been getting me through the sterner moments of the show… Look at her expression! What a gem!
Oh! And I got a gift! From the beautiful Aoife Noone who starred in Rewind by Claudia O’Sullivan not but yesterday! How lovely! It’s a play called What happened Bridgie Cleary, which follows Bridgets story in an entirely different way from Patrick Galvin altogether:
So our more current news, for you lovely readers is this class raffle we’re holding! And will continue to be holding throughout the Galway run. FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A CAMERA FOR THREE BUCKS. We’re aiming to raise 500 euro from it, and it is so amazing how nice people have been about it! Donations left right and centre, to ensure people are well rewarded for their donations! Thanks guys! Buy a ticket for goodness sake! What’s three more euro as they say?
…who is this they?!
Special Kudos also going out to our unreal countdown thing Martin’s doing! I absolutely love it! We have bits of it in our programme too.
Okay, I really should get back to work!
