ALLE TIDERS HAFSLUND
The kids were super excited, but they were quite disciplined and they listened when I told them to focus and be professional.
They were all excited because Vinni, a Rapper from Norway was coming to the show, and Donkeyboy, a popular Norwegian Popband.
The park was being prepped and luckily the weather improved from the morning to the afternoon and people started trickling in.
Lovely atmosphere and huge excitement over the fact that we had a massive audience.
Kids getting extremely excited backstage. Standing in front of Donkeyboy’s drum set.
Annoyed looking old man in the park. Look at the beautiful alley of trees! Hafslund Hovedgard park is my favourite place in Sarpsborg. So beautiful Reminds me of England.
Donkeyboy did a good gig. They were pretty good live.
But then again, so were we!
I didn’t get to spend any time q’ing the soundguy, as they needed all the help they could get backstage, making sure the kids ran out at the right time, helping people change in to their costumes etc. It was chaos, but it went alright, except the one scene when the kids forgot to go onstage. The only time I wasn’t paying attention because I was busy changing the actresses dress. The two actors saved it though by improvising, until Rebekka came from the stage and shouted for them to come… that was rather embarrassing. But it wasn’t all together my fault. But all in all the play was a success.
We’ve also been asked to do Kardemomme by in Fredrikstad at a farm for this St.Hans event… we’re getting paid! Which is great.
