You can't beat actually being there with the actors and actresses - It's a completely different experience to seeing a movie and so much more personal and enthralling, especially at a smaller venue where you're right up close to the stage.
This Friday night I went to see a play at my local theatre called 'Snake in the Grass', which was basically a murder mystery, but with an eerie twist!
I haven't been to my home town's theatre for a while now and was pleasantly surprised to see such an entertaining play performed by amateurs on a small static stage with very few props, costume changes or effects.
The whole play was performed by three women, pictured in the link, and it just goes to show, you don't need big expensive special effects or big name actors etc to be very entertained for an hour and a half.
A few weeks ago, I went to see 'Teatro Delusio', which is a play done in a very different style to anything I've seen before, mainly because it had NO dialogue in it at all!!!
I was rather amazed to see how the actors conveyed a whole range of emotions, purely with body language, as they never spoke a word and they all wore masks, which were set in a fixed way - They acted so well, it was like the latex masks actually moved to show the emotion, but it was just an optical illusion.
A real eye-opener and not something I would normally go and see, but I'm so glad I did on hindsight.
So, when was the last time you visited the theatre and what did you see folks?

Today's Top Tip: Girls - Next time you feel like throwing a ball over-arm, don't, because you can't and it just looks silly. Just throw it under-arm style, and no one will laugh at you or get hurt! :0) *Dogga cowers and prepares for outraged female onslaught*
