Manchester Continued

Only a quick update this month as the Matilda tour gets settled into its Manchester run. Rehearsals reached their conclusion (for now) and all the new children and adults are performing fully in the show. We are welcoming new members of the backstage technical team as some staff move to other productions, so we have people learning how to call the show, mix at the sound desk and operate the lights. Lots of new faces to learn as ever!

Old school friends and family members not nearly seen enough continue to come and see the show while it’s at the palace, so I’ve been having lots of lovely catch-ups. As a thank you for tickets, my sister arranged for me to have a relaxing spa day at a hotel nearby. While I’m a big fan of the odd jacuzzi, sauna & steam, this was actually my first ever spa to include a massage and a facial (yes, totally ridiculous for a 36 year old never to have had treatment, I know). As a pianist who also conducts every night, it was totally worthwhile getting some of the tension massaged out of my shoulder and upper back. I already want another one…!

Just over three weeks left of our Manchester run. Do come along if you haven’t seen the show yet!
