Some photos of the team in the Netherlands (Alison Pollard-Mansergh, Jordan Edmeades & Anthony Sottile) filming an interview with Wim Cremers ofLimburg Allein at TV Limburg, yesterday in Roermond.
You can watch the interview below and keep an eye out for Manuel’s brilliant bottle opening skills.
If you’d like to come along and meet the Faultys, they’ll be serving dinner in Heerlen from the 21st to the 23rd February. For more information about shows in the Netherlands and Belgium see our website.
At the Odeon de Spiegel, Zwolle there was some super speedy table service in an amazingly decorated room. Zwolle currently holds the records for the fastest Faulty Towers table service at 4 minutes 50 seconds for a room of over 100. A big thank you to Annette and Ton for inviting the Faulty team back!
Fact of the day: “Toi toi toi!” is the Dutch equivalent of the English saying, “break a leg!”
Netherlands Tour update! Last week at the Theater Aan Die Schie, Schiedam took breaking the boundaries between performer and actor to a new level with tables set up on stage in a large theatre auditorium. Manuel (Anthony) likes to try and play cupid during the show and we think that this week he might have had some success – Stefan and Rosalieka, if you’re reading this, let us know if you ever went on that date!
Last week the Netherlands Faulty Towers team (Alison Pollard-Mansergh as Sybil, Jordan Edmeades as Basil and Anthony Sottile as Manuel) enjoyed a week of sold out shows in the beautiful, Art-Deco Thalia Theatre in Ijmuiden. Some great food and packed out shows despite more snow made for a great week.
It was also a week of two Sybils, with a guest appearance from the lovely Donna Gray and after a week of maybe one too many desserts came the very serious suggestion that a certain member of the cast invest in elasticated trousers (any guesses?)
This week the show appeared in Schiedam and Zwolle and look out for some cheesey jokes next week to celebrate the show appearing in Gouda, the home of Gouda cheese.
