People watching is pretty fun on the tube at the moment, especially when people dress head to toe in their country’s colours!

Happy (Sunshine!) Monday

by handprinttheatreblog

Summer is making a comeback…and we couldn’t be happier! It’s so nice to enjoy summer activities (BBQ, anyone?) without having an umbrella as your sidekick! (Not that we don’t like the rain – see last week’s Happy Monday – but we don’t hate the sun either…)

A little bit of exciting news for you:

Handprint are taking to the streets!

To celebrate the start of the Olympics, London Bridge is holding a street theatre festival, which we are very proud to have been selected for, over the opening weekend. (This weekend coming!!)

Come along and support Handprint Theatre (and share your photos and tweets: @TeamLondonBdg).

When and where:

Friday 27th – 10am Hay’s Galleria
                            12pm  St John’s Churchyard
                            2pm Kings College Campus
Saturday 28th – 10am St John’s Churchyard
                                  2pm Hay’s Galleria
Sunday 29th – 10am King College Campus
                              2pm St John’s Churchyard

What:

A Suburban Silent Movie

Love at first sight, a jealous villain and escape into the moonlight is not the classic silent movie we are telling; this story is definitely no picnic!

Will the jealous Baron get his evil way, will our heroine’s days be numbered, will our hero save the day, or will ‘planned’ engineering works get in the way?

Our Characters have escaped the confines of the cinema screen, and are free to run riot throughout the streets.  Clowning, British Sign Language and a wealth of comedy submerses the audience within the silent movie.

Hope to see you there…

 

…and a very Happy Monday from all of us! Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine…remember to wear sunscreen…

Looks like the rain is here to stay a while longer…so here are a few things that might make it better:

There are many things we can do because of the rain, so go and do some of your favourite things (my favourites are taking a walk in the rain, dancing in the rain, and being in a tent in the rain).

If all else fails, the rain makes us grateful when the sun does come out to play – early this evening, the sunshine came out for a little stretch, and it was so lovely!

Happy, happy Monday from all at Handprint x

Happy Monday

Sometimes happiness is something you can find with a good book and a cup of coffee/tea/hot chocolate/(add your favourite drink here)…it can be found in the most simplest of things, and on rainy, dull Mondays, the simple things that make us happy are simply the best!

Our wonderful Lucy had a birthday on Saturday…

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Lucy,
Happy Birthday to yooooouuuu!

Here’s hoping that the year ahead brings you more travel adventures, and many lactose-free cups of tea!

Happy Monday

Monday Monday, so good to me,
Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn’t guarantee
That Monday evening you would still be here with me.

Monday Monday, can’t trust that day,
Monday Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way
Oh Monday morning, you gave me no warning of what was to be
Oh Monday Monday, how could you leave and not take me.

Every other day, every other day,
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes
You can find me cryin’ all of the time

But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes
You can find me cryin’ all of the time

Monday Monday, …
