I visited the UK again in September as my first visit there in February was very nice. This time I went to Folkestone, Kent, where it was taken place by the musical Half A Sixpence I watched at Kokugakuin Tochigi High School, via Brighton, Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, Rye and New Romney.
I flew Aeroflot to Moscow, where I changed the plane to London. At Heathrow Airport, I had usual strict inspection at the immigration counter. Being asked why I was going to Folkestone, I answered the plain truth that I had been impressed by Half A Sixpence I had watched several weeks before and it had encouraged me to visit there. I told the cab driver who took me to the hotel from the airport the same thing, and he said, “Oh really. Enjoy your trip to Folkestone.”
三枝美江子先生がダンス指導されている國學院栃木高校の文化祭のミュージカル部公演「Half A Six Pence」を観に行ってきました。初めてここの文化祭公演を観たのがちょうど10年前、そのときも「Half A Six Pence」でした。
I visited Kokugakuin Tochigi High School where a friend of mine taught dancing and choreography to the student of the Musical Club as an instructor. There was a cultural festival of this school, and the Musical Club members performed Half A Sixpence. It was the second time to see this show since I saw it ten years before at just the same place.
That motivated me to visit Folkestone, England where it took place in.
Posted a belated summer festival at Oji Shrine on 4 August.
