Wow! Over 11 years ago, a week before our wedding, we went down to Newcastle to see Rent at the Theatre Royal.
Unfortunately, after a long time waiting in the foyer, it was announced that the show had to be cancelled due to a failure in the electronics.
We never got round to see it since – until last week, when the senior group of the Alnwick Playhouse Theatre staged it – and what a show!
It has definitely been worth the wait and I’ll never regret having missed it back then again; the professionals couldn’t have done it any better, I’m sure.
Many thanks to everyone involved for a fantastic, touching night out.
And to everyone else: Keep those jam jars rolling in, the youth theatre is definitely worth it.
