Shilo Theatre Company Present Merrily We Roll Along

This weekend as well as being photographer/guest to a wedding in the cold Derbyshire hills, (photos to follow) I got a last minute phone call from my friend Al who is one of the producers of the Shilo Theatre Company needing some photography for their next production, Merrily We Roll Along.

The show is going to have two projection screens running all the way through that will help to explain this complicated musical (complicated because it goes backwards!). Sunday was their first rehearsal in costume and therefore the first opportunity to get some imagery of the characters together. The imagery required was overall pretty simple stuff however the image below I think is pretty special and deserved a blog posting! The story behind it is that our leading characters are at their youngest age, star gazing and innocent to their chaotic future together.

Merrily We Roll Along is on at the RNCM, Manchester, from the 9th to the 12th December at 7.30pm and details to get tickets are on their website. Not only am I official photographer (photos from the dress will be posted here when I get chance!) but I am also crewing the whole week responsible for sound and projections, it's going to be a busy one!

I am also singing as part of SMAOS' fund raising christmas concert this week, 7.30pm on Friday and Sat (4th and 5th) at the East Didsbury Methodist Church. More details here.
