Oh yes I\'m excited, enthusaistic, prayerful and supportive about The Backyard Bard\'s upcoming storytelling of Elijah. Still trying to figure out what night to come!

Rest assured that you are in my prayers. Blessya!

Hello Bible Bards! I\'m very excited about the up-coming performances, and telling my friends. Woo! Woo! :o)

Very excited too!
Yeah it's gonna be good, really looking forward to it!!!
Question without notice for you Rob, i just checked out the facebook for the berwick show (so I could email the link to a friend on facebook) and noticed that we actually hadn't invited anyone on facebook. Is there an easy way we can do that (as well of course as people inviting their friends) such as automatically inviting people from the MUBS list, or the CU list, or similar? I know it's not the be all and end all (as not everyone who signs up on facebook will come) but it will give us a much better ballpark figure, which will be useful.
Let me know what you think.
P.S. keep rehearsing well guys!!!

The Night Before
We just had a fantastic last rehearsal with all the set (two chairs, a hatstand and a milk crate) costumes (one camel hair coat) and multimedia. It's going to be a very fun and dramatic show. I'm so looking forward to getting it started at St Hills tomorrow night. Keep praying for us and we'll see you there.

Hoping to bring at least 50 friends... coz I'm organising one of the nights.

Looking forward to the show
Saw one of your shows some time ago (Esther) and it really brought an Old Testament book to life for me, one I might well have otherwise have continued to skip over too rapidly for my own good.
Your dramatisation rawked - it's one thing to read that e.g. "there was great mourning among the Jews," but another to have 'them' wailing and lamenting a few metres from you, ya start to understand what 'mourning' really involves and what people were feeling during the events in question.
Not that the show was by any means generally a mourning experience, it was a lot of fun, and I left the performance feeling both happy and more holy than when I'd walked in.
I'll be coming to at least one performance of Elijah, maybe more (to admit the truth I if I come to two I might learn more about the Bible than during my too sporadic readings at home). I believe Elijah was quite a character, so no doubt this will be a great show.
I'll also try to bring an unsaved friend, more chance of getting him along to a play than a salvation rally!

Elijah performance at GWAC Sunday 7 OctoberHi I REALLY ENJOYED YOUR PERFORMANCE LAST NIGHT.IT'S SUCH A GREAT WAY TO TELL BIBLE STORIES & YOU ARE 2 VERY TALENTED GUYS! I JUST HAVE ONE SUGGESTION - I PERSONALLY FOUND IT VERY HARD TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WERE SAYING WHEN YOU USED FOREIGN ACCENTS.I WOULD JUST STICK TO THE AUSSIE ACCENTS,EASIER TO UNDERSTAND AND MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE

Accents - Pros & Cons
It's a tricky one isn't it. We spend a lot of time trying to work out what voice to use for each character. Generally we focus on the use of tone to communicate a characters emotions and personality, but we often like to use accents to help people distinctly remember who is talking at every point of the story. Also, we find that an accent (say, a snobby English one) can help portray a clear picture of what we think about this character.
But you have a very valid point. The benefits of using an accent are all lost if people can't understand what we are saying! We will make an extra effort to say all lines (especially those with an accent) with clarity and articulation. Thanks for your comment!
