The sound of laughter

Firstly thanks to all who attended our storytelling evening last night, we were overwhelmed by the amount of support that we received.
We made £110 in the end, which is amazing, as we our minimum we wanted to make was £40, so you can imagine how thrilled we were.

Last night, for those who didn't get to see it, was an evening Bex, Kat and myself put together to raise money for out Drama in The Community project.

We wanted it to start out like a fairytale story and then change into our personal stories, all the stories had a meaning and a moral, some were funny and some were emotional, but i personally felt that they were all really thought provoking.

I was so nervous when it came to my piece, what if people didn't laugh? Luckily-they did. I thought how nice it was to see everyone laughing, at this moment in time we are all so tired and stressed but for one hour last night, i felt that everyone forgot there problems came together as a group of people and laughed.

I did however think this morning that i didn't see one first year there, this was upsetting, in all my years at St Marys i have always supported all the performances and think its a shame that there is a clear divide between the first years and the second and third years mainly because of the degree change but they just don't seem to have got on with us this year. Maybe its just me.

Any how i really enjoyed performing last night, and that's thanks to all that attended for making it such a good night.
