Come and see a silly sci-fi show!

I've been doing some CULES-style acting! The Cambridge Uni Light Entertainment Society have a spin-off called COGGLES (Cambridge Old Graduates and Graduands Light Entertainment Society), which is basically CULES but with rehearsals and performances at times more suited to people who're likely to be busy 9-5 Mon-Fri. And now, for one afternoon only, you get the opportunity to come and see me overact myself silly!

The show is called USS FingersCrossed. It's basically a Star Trek spoof with a Star Wars spoof as a subplot. It takes many affectionate jabs at those two series, but has a jolly good fun adventure plot as well. I play the Emperor of the Vulcans Inhabitants of Planet X, and also the ship's Doctor. Other people like androidkiller are in it too!

There's more details at http://www.camdram.net/shows/13/uss_fingerscrossed , but the key data is that there will be a performance at 3.45pm, on this coming Saturday, 22nd June, in Clare Hall, the little grad college next door to Robinson College. You should all come and see it, because the show is fun and silly.

I'm hoping to be able to set up a recording device, if the cast are alright with that.

Oh, that would be fantastic! I hope they say yes :)

You're doing it deliberately, aren't you? :-p

No sooner do I mutter in my LJ about feeling a bit lonely and not having much going on this weekend than I end up with three conflicting things to do next Saturday afternoon. Argh!

Gah! Fail! Epic, epic fail.

I'm so sorry I missed it — before the show I was collecting some data on second-hand cars for a friend (the actual car hunt I successfully postponed until tomorrow). I got involved in a clabby conversaion with a Skoda dealer.

Then I encountered the traffic around Midsummer Common for the fair.

Then when I arrived at Clare Hall, already 5-10 minutes after the performance's notional start time, I found the free parking was full and I didn't have change for pay-and-display. Faced with a negative amount of time in which to go and get some, I decided circumstances were conspiring against me and I knew when to quit. )-8

I hope it went well nonetheless!
