Kensuke's Kingdom

01 September 2006

When a show has been as successful as KENSUKE'S KINGDOM, it's always terrifying to see the first run of the new cast. I was almost shaking as I walked towards the rehearsal room this afternoon to see how rehearsals were progressing. But from the first few moments my nerves abated as the new cast confidently brought the story to life all over again, bringing with them a gentle difference and feel to the play which communicates extremely well. It's great! And with DANNY THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD beautifully underway in a rehearsal room in Cardiff, these two tours look set to create magic.

Once you've chosen your director, it all comes down to casting. And what two great casts we have got with these two shows. Extremely exciting, knowing what effect they are going to have on the forthcoming audiences.

Now PROOF awaits us. The read through is on Monday!
