The Dress Rehearsal

Yesterdays post was about the advertising of the Play Oh What a Lovely War which is being put on by the Sinoden Players at the Corn Exchange in Wallingford. Today I will show you the theatre and some of the play itself during the dress rehearsal 

Looking down from the top of the auditorium towards the stage, The flags you see are the country's that were involved in the first war

This is what you see from the back of the stage

  1. The costumes look really good.I hope you enjoy the production.

  2. Are you the official photographer? Looks like you got all access here - nice backstage and front stage shots!

  3. Great collection of photos.. I like your favorite shot too. Have a happy new week!

  4. Excellent photos! Don't you love stage lighting?

  5. It looks like a wonderful little theatre. I like watching plays in these small, intimate venues.

  6. What a fantastic group of photos from this play. You've captured the essence very well.

  7. I can see why that second last one's a favourite. It's a terrific portrait shot.

    The arched roof of the theatre is rather different than I would expect.
