We headed for Kilworth Theatre today to see their latest outdoor production…
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Running from 26th May until 5th July 2019, this production was back by popular demand. Given the track record here, we knew we were in for a treat!
Starring Jacob Fisher in the titular role; Carole Stennett (Narrator); Matthew McKenna (The Pharaoh) and Craig Armstrong (Jacob/Potiphar) with supporting cast: Rhianne Alleyne; Alexander Archer; William Atkinson; Ashley Birchall; Nicholas Collier; Hywel Dowsell; Nia Jermin; George Lyons; Owen McHugh; Ben Oliver; Matt Overfield; Marianne Phillips; Holly Prentice; Molly Rees Howe; Billy Roberts; Heather Scott-Martin and Lashane Williams
We picked-up Jo, Janet and Carol and enjoyed a hassle-free journey there. Thirty-five minutes later we were soon
in our seats at the Bar ordering our drinks!
As always with Kilworth, it was very well supported, and I think I only saw a few empty seats.
It turned out to be a really good performance – great songs (of course!) and great energy from all concerned – maybe a few too many sprogs in the production for my taste though! ? The resident Orchestra were outstanding – as they always are! Boy! George Dyer and his eleven-strong band of musicians certainly knew how to belt out a tune!
Next stop was the oft-visited Tollemache Arms in Harrington.
We were early, but they were able to seat us straight-away!
Collectively, we opted for Shared Platters to start…
…and then we all did our own thing. Jo and Janet chose the Fish & Chips, Carol, the Sea-Bass and Ann, the Roast Chicken…
I chose their ‘Red Lion’ Burger – a monster of a creation, featuring TWO burgers plus about every other filling known to man including cheese, bacon, gherkins, tomato and lettuce. I can see now why the guy on the adjacent table capitulated halfway through and left with his as a takeaway! None of us could manage Dessert… not even Teas or Coffees… and that’s a first (for me!) ?
We dropped the Girls back at J & J’s and we spent the evening admiring the Garden and enjoying a rather large G&T each! ??
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
