Also, the screening process for Thespo 13 is right round the corner and our monthly Great Text reading - this month we are going political with David Farr.

Our last month's quiz question was:
What was once used as a lighting source in theatres?
42% got the answer RIGHT!
The correct answer was 'Lime'. The term "limelight" comes from the lights used in theaters before the advent of electric lighting. Lime (calcium oxide), heated by torch flames, glowed white. Although am very keen to meet the 14% who answered with 'Fireflies'. Really?????
