Members of the cast, the Directors and all those involved behind the scenes would probably agree that we’ve had really great audiences at our first three performances of “The Memory of Water”. After each show I’ve heard comments like, “That was the best play I’ve seen in years” or “You people keep getting better and better each time I see you” or “I’m overwhelmed. I laughed a lot but there were tears in my eyes during some parts of the play” or “Great performance! Can’t wait for your next play. Would you consider doing something during the summer?” or “It’s hard to believe that the Finn-Brit Players is an amateur theatre company”
I could tell that the people who said these things weren’t just being polite; these were genuine, heartfelt comments. You can’t imagine how important this kind of feedback is to us. Most people don’t realize the countless hours of preparation that go into staging a production like this. But all that effort is somehow made worthwhile when we hear people say, “Hey! You done good”
So hats off to our audiences who have already seen our play and to those who will attend the last three performances on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
