Bird : We have one song, it is a little bit silly because we have to sing a lullaby to lots of eggs!
Julia : Well, it is the stage my dear - lots of things are a little bit silly on the stage. I like to think that it is all rather cute.
Bird : Oh, I think we do Cute quite well darling.
Julia : Yes sweetie I quite agree. Well the Lullaby to the Eggs number ends and we go straight into a big dance number with lots of High Kicking - it is quite spectacular.
Bird : And exhausting sweetie - quite exhausting!
Julia : Our friend Violetta is in the show too and she has lots of dance routines - I'm rather glad we only have the one!
Bird : Quite so darling. We join Violetta (in another post we'll show you some photos of her in costume) for one of her big numbers and we have to ride about & pose on this big Chicken sitting in a Basket prop as it gets wheeled about the stage.
Julia : Yes sweetie, and it is quite difficult to hold on to the big chicken but we must keep smiling ... no matter what!
Bird : Well my dearest, that's show-business. Smile even though there are feathers up your nose, Smile even though you are sliding off a big chicken ... just keep smiling and everyone will think you are very cute.
Julia : Oh I do hope so - because really it is all quite a lot of fun being a 'Chickadee' on the Stage.
