Henley Festival – Hydro-Pyro-Mania

Here we are at the Henley Festival creating the finale show with Pa-Boom. The performers are Marc Parry and members of the Acorn music theatre company The piece was choreographed by Ruth Jones and Clare Fildes and commissioned by Stuart Collins.

Thanks to all who took part and particularly Gail and Lucie for washing the 24 sets of soggy Lycra every night! We have played this kind of piece many times now from Singapore to Barking with different combinations of performers both professional and volunteer but with the acorn group we had the best of both worlds. They were professional, enthusiastic and took the whole thing seriously (as all comedy should be) but didn’t forget to have fun. Thanks to everyone. Final shout out to Pete and Adam without whom the whole thing would literally not have happened.
