So, that was Much Ado About Nothing...

Without a doubt, our most successful show to date. We had a great time, our audiences enjoyed themselves, and we managed to sell all of our tickets too. Bonanza! We've even got a rather flashy DVD of this one, filmed and produced by the brilliant Charlotte Forsdick (@cforsdick on twitter), and we'll be making that available to our more maniac fans in the next couple of weeks.

So, what's next for BDTC? Well, as always, big plans. We're beginning to look into the possibility of a series of workshops digging around in some of our favourite Shakespeare plays, and with a fair wind these will get started properly some time in the new year. It's a hugely exciting prospect for us - a chance for us to share what we know, learn what you know, and have a cracking time doing it. Assuming we can put something together that goes beyond playing Ka-Bish Ka-Boo for four hours, which is by no means guaranteed.

But first! First comes the next show - and not before time. Having my Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays back has been horrible, frankly, and I think I speak for most of the company when I say that time off is rubbish. So we're getting back to it...

Twelfth Night is next. Plans are afoot, and over the next couple of weeks we'll start organising dates, venues, and (most excitingly of all, at this stage) AUDITIONS. I've spent the last week or so scribbling frantically in my new Twelfth Night notebook, and the barest of bones are taking shape in my head. It's going to be enormous fun.

The most important thing now is to keep a weather eye open for audition details. We'll have them up on the website as soon as possible, and then we'll rustle up a colourful poster to stick up wherever we can find a flat surface. Keep watching those flat surfaces, you lot.

Twelfth Night. A big galloping boozy Christmas show from Bingo Dragon. Hurrah!
