Seussical is a triumph. We sold out on opening night and again tonight. We couldn’t have squeezed another body into the wonderful Pleasance Theatre. (Have we mentioned how truly wonderful this theatre is and how brilliant the staff are Chris and Tom in particular. No? well they’re magic.)
Friday night is approaching sell out so get your orders into the hotline quick but there is still availability on Saturday strangely.
Alice, Niall and Steph have done an incredible job in their first ever FCT show and they really are part of the #FCTfam now. We love them all.
After a tough year financially last year this looks like getting us well back on track (which is just as well as we had to spend a lot replacing the doors at Bangholm this week. Thanks to Rene for sorting that.)
Seriously, you need to see this show. Don’t be the one in awkward conversations where people say “Remember Seussical” and you say. “That’s so annoying I never went but I went shopping instead.”
And one last thing. We need a poll. WE haven’t had one for ages. So fill this one in…

As showtime approaches we have sold 65% of all of our tickets so you really will need to move fast if you’d like to see our latest gem.
Here’s the principals, yes all three of them, taking a break from rehearsal.

On Friday night we gathered en-mass at the VIP Room at The Gilded Balloon to see how we had fared in the third ENDA Awards. (Evening News Drama Awards) which are open exclusively for Edinburgh groups. Liam Rudden has to be commended for bringing recognition to local groups in a Festival which is overwhelmed sometimes by comedy acts.
The Drama ENDA this year went to ETA for A Tale of Two Cities. Well Done ETA on recording a double.
Next up; the best Musical award and we were facing Tempo and Edinburgh University’s Savoy Company. We didn’t have to wait long though before the news we were all hoping for broke. We’d won. Again!
It was the perfect finish to the Fringe for a cast, band and crew that had truly excelled.
Roll on 2010.
