4th August 1999

The performance for tonight was Pirates - it proved to be a very comical variation.   Frederick and the Pirate King were both excellent but Mabel had trouble with her high notes

After the show we went to the Festival Club.  The first part was The Amazing  William ( William Darkow a member of the Seattle G&S which would perform later in the festival).  Because we were at the front he selected Di as his first victim.  He performed a trick in which he tied a scarf around her arm - we all checked it and then with a tug it came off - very clever.  For his next trick he selected Arthur and Karen.  They tied a rope around Karen's waist and then "pulled it through her body - very clever indeed!
