Me: It was ever so windy on the beach wasn’t it? Look at Poppy’s ears.
Nell: It was an extremely exhausting rehearsal.
Me: Not for everyone. Harriet swam between scenes and Mutley loved it.
Nell: David ran off with his fan club. He was gone for ages.
Me: He came back eventually.
Nell: There are far too many distractions.
Me: I think we might have been the biggest distraction considering the number of people who stopped to watch us.
Nell: I refuse to go down to the beach again with a large moose and an alpaca.
Me: But they are part of the cast.
Nell: I can accept that Alejandro is playing Little John but what on earth is that moose doing? And why is it wearing a red jacket and a brown hat?
Me: Monty is a Mountie.
Nell: I beg your pardon?
Me: Monty the Moose is a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Nell: We’ve got the RNLI down here. We don’t need the Mounties.
Me: I know but he’s an old friend of Knitwear Wolf’s and he has agreed to play the Noble Steed.
Nell: There isn’t a noble steed in Robin Woof.
Me: Actually there are several and Monty has agreed to play all of them.
Nell: How can he do that?
Me: Different coats. Black for a bad steed and green for a good.
Nell: And red?
Me: That’s his everyday coat.
Nell: I hope there isn’t a battle because he can’t fight himself.
Me: Alejandro will play the other steed when needed.
Nell: They aren’t even horses. Having said that I suppose we have rabbits and woodlice as Merry Dogs so why not? Quite frankly I’m past caring.
Me: The more the merrier. See what I did there?
