Shows Over

Finally come down from the excellent show last Saturday – it was great to see everyone on top form, not sure it was down to my inspirational talk or Ruth’s ticking off, but whatever happen it worked.

I can not thank everyone enough for all their hard work, behind the scenes and on stage in getting the show off the ground, The Chapel for the use of the venue, Godolphin for rehearsal space, my mother for making the shirts, Ruth for stage managing the show and her assistant Cath, Paul on lights, Simon on Guitar and to the creative team of Moody & Taylor and last but by no means least the cast – well done.

We hope to have a together before to long for a well deserved drink – and who knows Jack might be back…..

Watch this space!

A Sister of the Abyss

Sister of the Abyss, call a spade a spade I say, she was sad broken down tart….

Rehearsal Time Again

Good to see everyone in fine form last night, sorry we could not have a rehearsal with full on sound, but Chapel double booked with a folkse band, which we managed to over come even with out mics.

We have an audience, not great numbers but an audience all the same. See you tonight from 6.30pm for a sound check before 7.15pm.


Yours Truly, Jack The Ripper

Show Time!

What a night!

We where already to go at 7.30pm, cast pumped ready to go – when BOOM!

We won’t be starting until 9.30pm when the delegates have had their banquet, this as you can imagine went down like a lead balloon, I was afraid we were going to have our very own lynching to the sound track of “Mob Rule”.

Thankfully everyone was fantastic about it, and the show went on at 9.30pm.

The delegates loved it, standing ovation at the end, the cast and crew where just the business, Simon and Frogg rocked.

Because we had over ran by a few hours the Chapel on the stroke of 11.00 burst into life, trying to convey sorrow over Mary Jane’s brutal assault to the backing track of some techno music was challenging to say the least – But we all managed to step up and get through it.

Many thanks to our singers, Ali, Caroline, Ray, Sophie, Mark, Natasha, Amanda, David and to Nikki for their performances, Ruth for all she has done managing us, Paul for helping us shine, Simon for his Riffs, and Frogg “what are the white notes for” Moody for his handling of the sound.

We can all have a well deserved rest and catch our breath before we meet up again on Wednesday for a run though and then three more nights at the Chapel bringing “Jack The Ripper” back to the stage.

Jack is Back!

Unfortunately – No Sound

We had a bit of blow this week – our sound engineer has had to pull out due to work commitments…..

Thanks to Ali and Frogg we have managed to cobble some equipment together and in true theatrical tradition the “Show Goes On!”

Final week of rehearsals starts tonight – Two technical then a dress rehearsal then the performance on Saturday for the Jack Ripper Conference.

But Jack will be back again next week 13th, 14th & 15th Nov in the Chapel Salisbury – Tickets on Sale from the Music Rooms Catherine Street.
