ScrapFriends Sketch Challenge - January 2013

I have not often had the opportunity to go to the theatre or live shows; a lack of finances and the need to be with my family as they were all growing up just part of the reason I guess. I have never been one to get excited about celebrities, to follow a particular songster, actor or sport star and have the worst memory for names and details if the person is not connected to me in some important way.  I need to see an advert or be recommended by family and friends before considering going to see a performance. My middle sister is entirely different; she is an avid fan of many celebrities, performers and athletes and attends all forms of theatre and sport as often as possible. It was she who told me about Madame Butterfly coming to Perth and asked if I wished to attend with another mutual friend.
I didn't know a lot about the story line, just a general outline so I made sure I read up on it prior to the performance. Theatre aficionados may have disliked the idea but I found that having English subtitles displayed on a screen was particularly beneficial. It was a beautiful moving story with a very sad end; the opening night performance was wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, best wishes.
