ATY opens shows at 10:30 in the morning for a school audience, then to the public in the evening. Wednesday night, final rehearsal, the actor playing the crazy uncle didn't show up because of work.
Not a good situation.
The next morning, one of the mums brings in an emergency understudy for the role.
A kitchen broom with a fantastic cartoon face painted on it and a pink bow tie.
The actress playing his girlfriend admitted it was probably the best tension breaker anyone could have done for all of us.
