There really is nothing quite like a first class Theatre production, to thrill and inspire us. I was so privileged and blessed to have been part of a group of women from here in Bandolierkop, to head down to the big city this weekend for a very special outing.
Inge, Xanthe, Tanya, Des, Marisha, Landi, Susan, Anna and me :)... We had saved and planned for it for the best part of 6 months. We left the Lalapanzi Hotel on Saturday morning all full of excitement, laughter and friendship... making the four hour journey to Monte Casino in a combi. We stayed at the hotel, and enjoyed some down time in the shops, before dinner and the show. We were completely captivated by the War Horse production, and loved every single minute of it. Oh how I wish I could get more tickets... I would drive back there tomorrow with my hubby and kids, and whoever else I could get, to go with us!
No photos may be taken, so it's very easy for me to just download some off the internet...
The skill of making these puppets come alive is just breathtaking!
YES - this was a real highlight for me! Thanks so much Tanja Richter, and all of the ladies who made it so memorable! Will do this again in a heartbeat!
AND - to just perfect the weekend, we have finally had some beautiful, soaking, gentle rain! It's pretty cold now, but at least the rains are around.
