All this talk for months and now, the day is finally here, the first of Merseyside Community Theatre’s shows of Romeo and Juliet at Croxteth Fire Station. I’ve been up there this morning and the station has been utterly transformed – there are a lot of rather bemused looking firefighters walking around the place. This morning we’ve had film crews and photographers up there interviewing the cast and crew, people from TRO and the fire service, the setting, the rehearsals – it’s getting a lot of attention.
The only thing to say now is, please rain, go away! (I have it on good authority that the weather will be good this evening – quite when the Director of The Reader Organisation became a meteorologist, and a dependable one at that, I don’t know, but I’m trusting her…)
It’s all sold out for tonight but there are still tickets available for tomorrow and Friday – just come along, or visit the MCT site to find out how to book.
