Barnacle-bustin’ night at Beltinge!

Our last performance of Sea Salt & Slaughter was hosted by 2nd Reculver Brownies to a small but almost perfectly  (in)formed audience!  I say this as 4/5 tables got the answer right!  LOL.

Trio of trouble

Which one of these has a guilty conscience?

Thanks to Brown Owl, Katie Waters, for all her hard work and for making us feel so welcome. The audience was great fun to play off, lots of jokes and a really warm and friendly bunch of people. Many of them were joining in on the sea shanties which was encouraging and made us sing all the louder!



Now the run is over I can show you pictures of Karen dressed as the ghost of Old Mog who comes back to haunt the guilty suspect. Karen’s idea of no one but the murderer and herself knowing whodunnit until the end of the play each night was a great idea and kept the cast’s reactions to their fellow characters pure throughout. Not even I knew who had been given the piece of parchment with the much sort after “black mark” at the beginning of each performance, denoting the one who’d dunnit. Ingenious! This time it was the lovely Sally who was the guilty party.

A great performance by all the cast and I know everyone is sorry to see their characters sail off into the sunset… until next time. It’s been huge fun to direct this fabulous motley crew who have embraced their characters and really worked hard to get the most out of them in the time available. Well done me hearties, I’m proud of you all. Arrrggghhh!

The Treasure Map

At the end, after the reveal, prize giving and raffle, my wonderful cast presented me with the most beautiful bunch of flowers and a priceless handcrafted card from “Old Mog’s Card Shoppe”! LOL.

A great evening’s entertainment! Loved every minute.

Thanks to Katie Waters and Sarah McMullen for the photos.
