When you work in the arts industry, you know last minute changes happen. It never prepares you for them though! After months of preparation and rehearsal for this year’s annual shadow show at Anglesey Abbey (see Upcoming Events), Infusion performers/choreographers Mel and Dan Cossette realized they would have to completely reverse the shadows of the Mouse King and Nutcracker for the duel scene–only the climax of the entire show.
With dress rehearsal and show day less than 36 hours away, it was back to the props workshop to rebuild the shadow puppets, reversing the handles, and then switching all the choreography to the opposite hands. No biggie, right?
Look for last minute ticket releases for the sold-out hit event Winter Lights at Anglesey Abbey, Lode, UK!
