Pomme and 'Restes are back

Yesterday marked the first day that the beloved A Company of Fools were back in our building to start rehearsals on Pomme and ‘Restes: Shipwrecked! On the Tempestuous Lost Island of Never. I say “beloved” because in fact, they really are beloved here. Their last show that they did here (A Midwinter’s Dream Tale from 2011-12) was so well liked, that when Eric Coates began working here, there was a vocal contingent among the staff that campaigned for their return during the Christmas season. Demand was so high that extra student matinees had to be scheduled, shows sold out and GCTC volunteers could now moonlight as professional ice-cream scoopers! So it’s no wonder that we’d want to experience that kind of excitement again in a new season. And if the first taste we got of the show yesterday is an accurate representation of what we’ll soon see on stage in a matter of weeks, we’ve got something special in store for you.

I won’t spoil any surprises for you, but I’m certain audiences will be very delighted to see Pomme Frites and ‘Restes back in our theatre again.
