October was in many ways a very ordinary month of touring: a week in Belfast, Glasgow, Wolverhampton & Milton Keynes apiece. It has been a busy schedule as we prepare the show for its transition to Singapore next month, and every single working day for me in October started at lunchtime and ended well after 10pm. However, The Addams Family only does performances Tuesdays-Saturdays due to the amount of time it takes to shift the set from city to city, so I have enjoyed - and certainly made the most of! - a two-day Sunday-Monday weekend every week.
The UK tour finishes this week in Dartford - a complete sell-out as the perfect storm of Halloween, London interest & the end of the tour saw a real ticket rush. We say goodbye to Sam Womack, Les Dennis, Jess Buckby (a member of our fabulous ensemble) as well as the UK band. We then have just one week off before we head over to Singapore to get used to our identically-built set and our Singapore set of musicians ready for our three-week run over there. In the interim I will be continuing to prep for the beginning of Matilda rehearsals, which for me get going almost as soon as I step off the plane from Singapore in December!
