My Story card: Mrs Christine London remembers a wide variety of shows.



Extent and medium

card. One item


Been in the area 40+ years so visited many performance - shows, ballets, opera. Memories: RSC "Midsummer Night's Dream" Hilarious! Fairies in Doc Martens! My children were then 12 & 8 - both hooked on Shakespeare ever since! (Thank you) "Romeo & Juliet" ballet - very hot day - felt for the dancers in very hot costumes! "Cats" - Who appeared in the auditorium. A version of "Carmen" with real horses (& awful trumpets!). "Singing in the Rain" Paul Nicholas in the lead. Another baking hot day - he had the last laugh - he loved being in front of the 'fountain'. Mayflower has provided my intro to Opera - thank goodness for surtitles! All good memories & brilliant, today, to see how it all works so well. THANK YOU
