We gave our final performance of Under the Influence today at 1:25 pm and the cast gave one of their best performances. It was a great way to close out our run of Under. We also had such a supportive audience from Mid-Pacific Institute from Hawaii and, I think, a school from Tennessee. It is safe to say that this was our best audience at the Fringe. Many tears, compliments and celebrations after the performance.
We had lunch back at the dorm and then later saw a production of Honk Jr. . . . great production, fun cast and talented ensemble vocals as well as leads. As we were leaving, we were asked to see a production from Minnesota entitled The Ice Fishing Play, apparently the school that was supposed to the audience did not show up so they ask NPAC if we could sit in. What a wonderful surprise . . . the play had comedy, touching moments, and a plot twist. The acting was so smooth and natural. Many of said that this was our favorite production of all that we saw so far at the Fringe.
We returned back to the dorms for a pizza tea (party). It's been quite a journey and the last two days will be busy with a few more shopping excursions and tour of Edinburgh Castle, and of course a few more shows. Hard to believe its coming to an end.
