Blog entry 2 – Premiere day!

A beautiful day, with a clear sky and the sun shining began at The Globe Neuss, with finishing touches to set, props and lighting all in preparation for opening night!

Excitement is building for the festival as final preparations to the bar and decorations in the outside space around The Globe Neuss are being made.

Two film crews visited us during the day to catch a glimpse of the rehearsals and fight calls, a real media buzz is starting to build…

An hour before the show the cast are preparing, doing their most important vocal warm-ups, while as Social Media Manager I got to check out the buzz of the festival, see the crowds arrive and capture what was a great build up to the show.

Across from the Globe Neuss Theatre itself is an event building, which houses the box office, bar, bookshop and facilities, here the crowds gathered in spectacular surrounding decorated lavishly with everything connected the Shakespearean world – with of course a lavish theatre touch!

Outside the venue, tall flags advertised the festival, picnic benches were dotted around and a small stage was placed where our Director was interviewed prior to the show…

With many audience members clutching onto their Macbeth programmes we wondered whether we’ll have enough by the end of the week!

The bell rang and everyone spilled into the theatre and the show began….and what a show this was, the acoustics in the building were amazing, the actors drawing in the audience into the world of Macbeth….

The final scene ended and the audience applauded, cheered and clapped so much we had 6 curtain calls for our opening night! With many people coming up to the director offering congratulations there was certainly a sense of relief that the hard work all had put in at Icarus was well deserved.

With cast & creative enjoying a drink after the show, we all looked forward to a great week ahead and onto the next show!
