Continuing my quest to gain some photo skills in the film and theatre industry I contacted the Fluellen Theatre Company director to request an opportunity to photo-document a dress rehearsal.
The performance was based on the Dylan Thomas’‘A child’s Christmas in Wales’.
The whole evening was an amazing experience; the entire troupe was so professional and committed to the performances, and yet it was evident how much they were enjoying themselves. I tried to stay professional and detached, concentrating on the task at hand, but I was still felt like a member of the audience enjoying the performances. “I must stay focussed”.
All the performers were so gracious to permit me to intrude on their rehearsal and I am so grateful for their patience and cooperation.
