GENERAL BUSINESS. Philip asked each member for an update of their show responsibilities and if there were any problems to see Judy. Any show changes will be posted on the internet. War dance and fight scene  has no problems. Timing, diction all great. Scene changing to be worked on as it is complicated. Music to be played behind the scenes to lessen the time frame. Make the scene changers part of the show, e.g. wear something quirky. Maya would like cast to arrive at 5.30 for 7.00pm for make-up. Shona: everything under control as stage manager at the moment and she will deal with any problem as it arises. Thanks to Jules, Maya and Helen for work on costume co-ordination Jeanne: Front of House: no problems at the moment and will deal with them if they arise.
