So I released a new EP earlier this month. I'd love it if you gave it a listen, or a download, and maybe you could even find your way along to one of my gigs :)

This is a poem (a review some might say) about some people who act and dance, written with love from someone who draws.

The trip to Exeter was not my first,
So the show had a lot to live up ta’,
In the car we’d been listening to Olly Murs,
One Direction and Frank Sinatra.

As we found our seats in the theatre,
I did wonder (I’m afraid to say),
What would happen if I jumped into the Orchestra,
But instead we sat down in Row J.

The lights went down and the music had begun
We were amazed, excited and gripped,
Perfectly in time, many limbs were flung,
And not one single person tripped.

The whole show was breathtaking,
When the interval came along,
I didn't even want to go for a wee,
I just wanted to hear more of your songs.

For me, the two brightest stars on the stage,
In a cast already gleaming with light,
Were an amusing couple of uncertain age,
With whom you would not want to engage in a fight.

Gladys Murphy was portrayed by Rosie Archer,
Whoever cast this part was clever,
As our eyes and ears were drawn to her,
She was radiant and witty as ever.

Freddie McManus played Sam Silver,
A grumpy but kind hearted soul,
As he argued his way from scene to scene,
His brilliant performance made us all LOL!

The rest of the cast performed incredibly,
If only I had your theatrical ways,
In that world, I would dance around perfectly,
And not look like a mental case.

So thank you, THANK YOU, cast and crew,
You truly did yourselves proud,
We jumped right up off our seats at the end,
And screamed embarrassingly loud.

Sally Archer
