My Leeds Experience – RITA MITCHELL

November 4, 2010

On the 26th July 2010 I spent a delightful day at Blackgates Primary School in Leeds.

I was the guest of tutti frutti, a production company for young children theatre. The company tour and perform in a variety of venues in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. I was privileged to see a grand performance of Hue Boy. It was dramatised using the captivating title of UNDER THE PARASOL.

I played my part by contributing a basket of Hue Boy’s favourite , exotic fruits for the children to taste. The play was brought to life by the able acting of Stewart Thomas who intelligently interpreted the essence of the story.

I cannot praise the performance too highly, and was gladdened by the dedication and pleasantness of the production team.

    How marvellous to see a staged production of your book. I wonder how it felt to see your characters brought to life on the stage. And such glorious photos. Really brightened up my morning.
