Hi Donna, welcome to the Unity Theatre Blog!
So tell us a bit about your company Boom Boom Baby!
Boom Boom Baby is an ideas factory created by myselfe and Richie Grice, whose purpose is to create and perform new and entertaining Populist theatre. If the Shoe Fits is our first production which has been successfuly performed to sell out audiences in the past. Like good bottle of wine this comedy has matured to it’s full flavour. We look forward to bringing new projects to the stage.
So how did If the Shoe Fits come into existance?
If the Shoe Fits was first performed at the JH Makin Theatre and then went on the road to the Gladstone Theatre, the Little Theatre, Liverpool Actor’s Studio and Unity Theatre. This much loved comedy is being made into a feature film due for release in 2012.
How are rehearsals going?
Rehearsals are a lot of fun and laughs. We’ve never had so much fun with our clothes on!!
What’s your favourite thing about Unity?
The Unity is very effienctly run and the staff are very helpfull and provide a lot of support that is sadly lacking in other theatres.
What’s the best show you’ve seen at Unity?
Best show at the Unity is Blackberry Trout Face (Editor’s Note: returning this Autumn!!)
And the best show you’ve seen away from Unity?
Very hard one this but I’m going to name a few……Lost Monsters, Canary, Hansel and Gretel, and the 39 Steps.
What advice would you give someone wanting a career in theatre?
Do everything, never give up, be disciplined, listen, learn, be dedicated, be a team player, no role is too small, be strong. You have to be prepared to work very hard in this career and realise that it is not easy and can be very frustrating.
Donna, thank you very much!
