Today was our day off and we had two of our fantastic Louisa’s Walk – Live History Productions actors filling in for us.
We are lucky enough to have Anna Freeland Hopwood, Gail Friswell, Don Gaye, Chris Hamley and Colin Dean working for us and taking off the pressure when things get really busy.
We try to have at least one day off a week and to know that we can leave either, or both, of our two productions: Louisa’s Walk or Her Story in these capable hands is a huge relief.
Today it was Gail and Colin “on” and they had good audience numbers on both shows.
Chris and I spent the day participating in two tours presented by the Eco and Adventure Guiding Certificate 3 students from the Tasmanian Polytechnic. We learned about the early Hobart Water Supply in Sue Ritchie’s “ From Settlement to Sewer – the Cost of Quenching our Thirst” and we were taken on a tour of the threatened Lauderdale Cottage in New Town on Sophie Greenwood’s tour of the historic home she is care-taking. Both were really well presented and equally fascinating.
