I can’t believe there are only two weeks to go until Singsational Nottingham! I first had the idea for a “sing-a-long” cum “celebrate singing” event over the Christmas holidays and I was so inspired that I decided I had to commit to a date and “just do it”. Well it has been hard work, but we are nearly there.
I’ve not done anything on the blog for a while because I have been enjoying the Easter holidays instead. But I have added some more words and music to http://www.singsation.org so that you can go and remind yourself how “Jerusalem”, Singing in the rain”, Show me the way to go home” and “I’m gonna wash that man right out of my hair”.
I’ve also got the musicians lined up. We’re having a couple of rehearsals and the second one, at 7.30pm on April 19th at Chilwell Road Methodist Church, Beeston, Nottingham NG9 1EH, is open to anyone who wants to come along and sing through the songs. I want to check that everything runs smoothly, identify any points that need to be explained to audience etc., plus the more people who know what should happen next at Singsational Nottingham! at 7.30 pm on April 20th (in the same place), the better.
And, a friend has built me a “shower cubicle” so that Mabel (the hero of the show) can actually “sing in the shower”! What a theatrical / musical experience the evening promises to be.
I’ll keep you updated on progress over the next couple of weeks.
