looking at the shore of "Rabbit Island"
Most years since we've come to Nelson, there was a local Shakespeare production every summer, often outdoors, involving many high school kids and other young folks. In recent times the focus switched to professionalism, with smaller cast, but this year's Comedy of Errors went back to the older style, just superbly choreographed and rather polished. It's always fun to spot actors we saw in previous productions as well.
Ben and I were the first ones to arrive on Saturday, and though I have no way of knowing for sure, there may have been between two to three hundred in the audience, enjoying a balmy summer's evening with picnic food and good company.
State Cinema turned yellow. Ben's been on staycation for the last week and a half and we noticed for the first time yesterday on our way to the PO. I think the color suits the Art Deco style. Do you like it?
I can't remember if this was the last time, but I posted another facelift in 2008.
