Callander Amateur Operatic Society
If there are many stories to be told of goings on in the dressing room, there must be just as many concerning events on stage .... fluffed lines; missed cues; missed entrances; ad libs; etc. Probably the audience didn't even notice, but we did.
So if anyone wants to share a story or two, once again send them to the editor using the 'Contact Us' button.
1995 - La Belle Helene
Murray Ure had a quick change from dinner suit to Greek God in Act 1. He rushed back on stage in his Greek toga - only to find he was still wearing his socks with his sandals. He looked just like a 'Brit abroad'.
2006 - South Pacific
A member of the cast, playing a senior naval officer, failing to exit by a door that wouldn't open, mysteriously managed to exit through the ship's steel plating.
2007 - The Merry Widow
The anticipation grew ....... and grew .......... and grew, as we waited for the Widow to make her entrance ............. just being fashionably late, that's all.
2008 - Annie Get Your Gun
The French Emporer's undergarments coming down, thanks to an over-enthusiatic tug from his Empress - thank goodness for the precaution of an extra pair.
2009 - Fiddler on the Roof
Ken again ..... as he casually wanders into the Inn ater the scene had been underway for a couple of minutes ....... but professional that he is, he made it seem the most natural thing in the world that a customer should just wander in ..... as they do.
