'You Kiss Me, Cause I'm The King'.

Learning how to play poker can be tricky starting off, especially if you're young. The young characters of Danti-Dan are eager to learn how to play the game but with slightly different rules.

Tonight we head to the Abbey Hall and with three weeks to show-time this is when the hard work really starts. Nights and days will be long, but we sure it's all going to pay off, as if you want to be really good at cards you have to practice and hopefully win big.

So far everything has been going swimmingly but we made it our objective on this show to be well organised, work hard and deliver on a solid show. So far the first few weeks has been all about blocking, learning lines, delivery and putting shape on the show. Now it's time for the real work. When we completely rehearse and rehearse and get this as close to perfection as humanly possible. We also got a sneak peek at the set during the week and we can honestly say it may be the best set we ever put on stage with thanks to Nefarious Designs.

Well with three weeks to go, we are going to be throwing on our costumes and going for Danti-Dan hell for leather and with the cast & crew we have involved in this one we are pretty damn confident on delivering on a great piece of theatre. But like playing cards, if you want to win big, you practice....or cheat!

Now all that's left to do is for you to come see the show!!!
