“Of all the gin joints in all the world” … Tony had to walk into Cleo’s! Yes Anthony and Cleopatra … Greece and Rome came together in this romantic romp as told by the bard William Shakespeare and performed by the Medfield Gazebo Players.
I was just there to see the show, but I knew that this performance was going to be interesting so I brought my camera.
This group does such a good job, the sound, costumes and performances were really nice. I knew a number of the actors and I know how hard they worked on this performance.
The weather report was for rain – but not until later – so the performance was held outside.
Well they almost got the whole thing in, but just before Cleo has her great dying scene the thunder sounded, the skies opened up and I made a beeline, with camera safely inside my shirt, for the dryness of my car.
So I guess that I’ll never know if Cleo and this play have a tragic end. … oh she does? (HA!)
The girls from Amherst College aka The Bluestockings were one of the featured performers at Norwood High School’s “A Cappella Night” about a week ago.

All summer long they rehearse the fall musical. Long days, the kids barely get to enjoy their summers. But they squeeze in their family vacations and by the end of August, the production is starting to take shape.
The dedication they have is as much as any varsity team. The performances they put on are incredible. Here is a look at the rehearsals, soon enough you’ll get to see images from their performance of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
