The best way of payment will be through PayPal, although I'll take cheques if people need to do it that way. I'll PM everyone back with my details once I have everything to send out.

I shall have to 'see' if I can get to work, it might take a bit for me to send or find out how to send cheques to you.

Nice to get extra flyers too! Thank you!

Please confirm that you got my pm with orders for one of everything including a blue puppet dragon and 2 free flyers

I am sure that you have everything in hand, but since I have not heard from you, I am asking for confirmation. I am hoping that I can share everything with my son, and it is his birthday on April 6.

Thank you, Sara, for giving your time and energy into this!!

We're using the handheld puppets in another production in June as part of the midland-wide 'SPARKS Children's Festival'. I got everyone's orders.

Nina - I will do my best regarding getting everything else to you by that time, but I'm afraid the puppet won't be available until the end of June.

Thank you, Sara, it will be much appreciated! And we can wait for the puppet.

How fun that you are doing another production - that is very cool

Well... I have zipped through the DVD and it is...

WONDERFUL

More later but especially the scene at Benden Weyr in which Menolly realises she is singing her own song is masterful! Well done to all players. Yanus is really vicious, Menolly lovable and the fire lizards gorgeous and funny.

I know Anne will be fascinated. I was! And I haven't see it sitting down and paying attention to everything. I was too excited the package did arrive on time and too anxious to see the popular bits

Again, kudos to all involved. It is great!

Thank you Hans! Needless to say, the opinion of those here at MoM is a big deal for me (although you may have guessed that from the 'Special Note' page of the program )

I haven't heard anything via pm so just wondering what's happening. Although if you've impressed Hans, it must be good. Will you be taking a copy to Anne too, Hans? I reckon she'd enjoy it if you did

So am I

I want to share Dragonsongs-Musical, with some freinds, who are not on site, one for sure is a fan of AMC, and she is blind. She a friend of mind, reminds me of Leri, when she and I are walking together, she has wit, and puns, and indpendent.

I wish to share that with her, she likes the Ship who Sang, once I told her that they were in the collection. She isn't realy an animal person, cats and here don't quite mix, but another freind of mine like cats, he asked about Reggie and Smokey when we get time to talk. He has low vision, and is 'print disabled'

The other one, I don't know. She is qutie 'hidebound', she in a way reminds me of Lady Pona (sp)

She enjoy musical, and plays. Via

I think it would be neat, if we could bring it to here.

I feel like a 'dead glow' but what is the American and UK format?
Also can I add one a copy of each? Once we get the checking fixed, Dan J and I got some extra money. I can send to you.

I got my package today...and was thrilled to tears to finally get to see the play.

I LOVED IT....Sara

Everyone did such a fantastic job of acting...Menolly was incredible, and sang so well.
The Dragon was very well done and Yanus was down right scary, lord I thought he
really hurt her arm. I loved the firelizards (wishing I would have bought one of them now)
and how that was handled was amazing. The singing at the last was lovely...and you
could really get the feel of the real story the way you did this.

Please relate to your cast that they were W O N D E R F U L...and I wish with all my heart
I could have been in that audience, to see this myself.
Thank you for a very special treat...

If Sara can manage maybe she can send you Mike and Tania;s stuff too, so it need not be send to the US or elsewhere in the UK?

You will love the play, Lanen!

It's here! And it is AWESOME! The girl who plays Menolly has a wonderful voice, very clear and strong. LOVE T'gellan too.

Meriah insists I add how much she laughed, especially when Menolly finds out who Robinton is!

DVD arrived yesterday: watched it on my little 7" player. I'll put it up on something bigger later.

The audience were obviously reacting to double-entendres (e.g.: "she's fast!") and student "in" things: but a delightful production.

Sara, I watched the DVD last night (it "played" no problems - pun intended ), and I really enjoyed it!

Truly, I take my hat off to you and your cast. You all did a wonderful job!
The girl who played Menolly has a beautiful voice, and I think she was very well cast, as was everyone.

I especially liked the way you handled the fire lizard puppets. I thought it was brilliant that you didn't try and hide the puppeteers, and that they were on stage as well. It worked really well and helped to give the lizards more of a personality. I loved the way they interacted with Menolly, and the way she kept batting them off her shoulder. Awesome. Funny. Delightful to watch!

It was great to hear our favourite Pern musicians music included. It HAD to be there! All the songs you chose were perfect.

All in all, I really enjoyed this. As a former Theatre Arts Major, I can see that this is not an easy piece to direct, and I think you did a brilliant job! Well done!

I also want to thank you so much for filming this so that we could all see it! The DVD and programs etc.. make a really wonderful and unique addition to our collections.

I am unsure what I asked for outside of the two scrips, what do you have left?
In terms of what I have left;

* Hold 1 x Region 2 (Europe) DVDs
