Inigo had a cool experience the other day. He, along with some other “orphans” from the play, were interviewed for the newspaper that is published in Guilder.
(We have our own newspaper in Florin, but it’s published only 3 or 4 days a week. The paper in Guilder is the paper that most people in our area receive for their daily news. It’s readership and coverage is quite large.)
I contacted a reporter there and told her about our production. She was very interested in doing a feature article on us because of the extremely large cast of children that we have. (We have approximately 65 orphans and 20 kids in Fagin’s gang.) She wanted to write an article about activities that kids are doing in the summer.
I love the exposure this gives us and I knew our director would love it too! Free P.R. is something you should NEVER frown upon!
So she came up with her photographer and gathered the kids for a sit-down chat.
I think the article will appear in Friday’s newspaper (July 1). We’re looking forward to reading it and we can’t wait to see what pictures they choose to publish with it!
