I went and helped out with a little bit of harmony singing with the fab Gravel Theatre Company,who were rehearsing down at The Old Red Lion ( na na na na na…oops sorry that’s the old bull and bush) at the Angel. They are rehearsing for their show NIMBY – a new comedy that explores what happens when people have to chose between their morals and their quality of life. ( 18th -25th June Old Red Lion, Angel) I tell you what, if their acting is as good as their singing, and I am assuming it is even bette, as they are actors after all…. it is going to be a cracking show. I have my comps for helping out, and as it is the smallest theatre in the land, I would get your tickets soon, it is well worth going along. I remember from Mr P’s many years in fringe theatre, you have to support the fringe BIG TIME. It is where all the real freshness and innovation is…most things are usually past their best by the time they get anywhere near ‘Up West’.
The cast, Daniel Curtis, Kate Sichel, Ciaran Dowd, Louise Torres-Ryan, Laura Dalgleish, Ryan O’Donnell are brilliant, and are singing a few of bits of vocal arrangements from my books between scenes. I had a lot of fun doing a vocal warm ups and sorting out some vocal stuff for them…woops I have another job I remember I have to do. So good luck chaps. I am really looking forward to seeing the show.
SONG OF THE DAY They use this song in their show…must sort out the harmonies..
Nothing Changes – Anais Mitchell featuring the Haden Triplets
