Tea And Biscuits With The Cast And Crew of Theatre Illuminata

When I was invited to tea by the lovely cast and crew from Theatre Illuminata, I wasn't prepared for what was to come. Armed with a platter of colourful cupcakes, I managed to keep my composure and conduct a reasonable interview. Warning: whatever is posted here cannot be... ahhh! Attack of the glitterfetti!

Me: OMG OMG OMG! I can’t believe I’m actually interviewing you. *goes into fangirl mode* Ahem... I mean, thanks for agreeing to be interviewed! How has Lisa been treating you? ;)

Bertie: Not very well, actually. There seems to be this never-ending "let's fling more obstacles at my character" thing that I don't really appreciate. *glower*

Moth: And there is a decided LACK OF PIE.

Mustardseed: We protest!

Lisa encourages the boys' bad habits!

Cobweb: Darn tootin'. *appropriate sound effect here*

Me: Let’s talk about sweets. In particular, why cupcakes? *offers a platter of colourful cupcakes*

Moth: Why NOT cupcakes?

Mustardseed: Yeah, what do you have against cupcakes?!

Cobweb: They make good trampolines!

Peaseblossom: *licking her fingers* Cupcakes are the perfect ratio of cake to frosting.

Me: I’m hungry. Is that a stash of sweets hidden under the bed?

Bertie: No--

Peaseblossom: Oh, Bertie!

Moth: You've been holding out on us!

*much crashing as the boys dive under the bed*

Me: Tell us more about yourself! Did Lisa have to interview you? Will we get to know more about you?

Bertie: She didn't interview me, or I never would have let her put me in the high heels.

Peaseblossom: She didn't ask me questions, but I would have been ready!

And I!

Mustardseed: Dang it, I was going to say that!

Cobweb: That was totally my line, too...

Me: How’s living in Theatre Illuminata like? Is it weird?

Moth: Who told you it was weird?

Mustardseed: I think she's been spying on us!

Me: Uh oh! Looks like I've been found out. Change of topic, quick! Living there without TV or the Internet must be boring! How do you cope?!

*matching blank stares and mumbles of "Internet?" and "What the heck is that?"*

Me: What’s your favourite prank to play on The Stage Manager?

Moth: Oh! Oh! The one with the dead fish!

Bertie: Yeah. *glances at her bed* They like that one.

Me: I’m sure you’ve heard that you’ve gained a massive following from readers all over the world. What would you say to them?

Moth: *waving his hands* Get that camera out of my face!

Mustardseed: No autographs, please!

Peaseblossom: You like me! You really, really like me!

Me: What’s one of your favourite memories in Theatre Illuminata?

Moth: Bertie was a very sweet baby--

Cobweb: She had dimpled knees.

Peaseblossom: And cheeks.

Mustardseed: Both sets!

Bertie: YOU SHUT UP.

Me: Lastly, why should we read Eyes Like Stars? Other than the fact that we can get to know more about you!

Peaseblossom: Every time you read it, a fairy gets its wings!
