We've now received more details about the Day-Star Theatre presentation which is scheduled to take place as part of the Floating Gardens Festival celebrations Sunday 8th June. And please note, it will start at 12.30 pm – not 1pm as stated in an earlier story on the website. Pete Marshall writes:
"2004 saw our 23rd AND FINAL annual Waterways Tour travelling by rivers and canals in our narrow boat, The Angry Bull, and performing our plays at waterside pubs and at waterways festivals and events. Since then we have concentrated on developing our rural community tours and our theatre in education projects.
"However, as in the last 4 years we will again in 2008 have a special compilation show of extracts of scenes and music from some of our past plays at a few waterways festivals and events. This is a bit of a change from seeing a complete Day-Star play and the emphasis will be on the comedy and music.
"This year's offering is called Ripples & Waves. It is often said that the smallest of happenings can eventually lead to the most earth shattering of events and in some way or another that is the theme of this collection of scenes and songs from our past shows. Characters include 2 elderly in-laws who have unexpectedly been left in charge of their son and daughter's boatyard (and they have hated each other ever since the wedding). The characters are: a disillusioned dairy farmer and his wife whose early ambitions have been lost, their moonstruck neighbour who lives by the canal, makes' moonshine' and wanted to be the first woman on the moon, and an overbearing boater whose long suffering wife finally gets her revenge!
