End of a golden season

Postby Chris » 01 Sep 2007, 10:39

Yesterday was the last day of my 50th summer season at the Harlequin Puppet Theatre and I've only just realised it. Next year is the theatre's 50th birthday when I plan to celebrate the Golden Jubilee but I've just realised that the 2008 season will actually be the 51st season. You see when you are 1 year old you have already lived one year, therefore when you are 50 years old you have already lived fifty years and therefore this must have included fifty seasons!

Actually I'm glad that I am not celebrating until next year, because this year has been a poor season for most of us. Next year will be better.

Congratulations Chris on next year.

We'd like to come to the big party if we can get an invitation (I understand that David Wilde is funding it).
Did I ever tell you about piece work?

Indeed, very well done, Chris, - you don't look old enough to have been at it that long! - I trust that you have something very special planned for next year. What exactly is the date of the demi-centenary?

May I add my congratulations. Fifty years is a great accomplishment for a puppet theatre! And if I am fortunate enough to be retired next year, I should enjoy crossing the pond and seeing your theatre.

Chris., May I add my Congratulations. It is something of which you (and Eric would have been) may be justly proud. I have said elesewhere on Punch Chat that I can remember Eric in the Park, with his mother in attendance, before the Theatre was built. I know that this makes me oldish but then I am knocking on.

Best Wishes for a good celebration, next year.

Geoffrey.
