Alarm Bells (posted by Matt)

Just when you thought the blog had become all sell-outs and boozing, along comes a bit of drama. In today's show just as Will hit the high note in the Oliver! porn song, a steward burst in and announced the venue was being evacuated. Five minutes later we're stood with a disappointed crowd on some rough ground joking about how the second half was even better. Ten minutes later we're back in the venue getting ready to pick up where we left off. Fifteen minutes later the show has been cancelled and we're disappointingly packing props away. The audience had been great, (immodestly) I thought we had been putting in a good performance and a false alarm at the nearby sports centre had put an end to it all. Still, I didn't have to put the Tim Henman gear on.
