BLENHEIM PALACE, 1 NOVEMBER 1997



It's easy to imagine soldiers drilling in the mist in the North Courtyard of Blenheim Palace, but on the morning of the World Premiere, there was just me and lovely Australian-born actress Anna Scott, who played the role of the Queen of the Sidh.  Don't we look calm, cool and collected, standing by in evening clothes for publicity photos?  Well, beneath that smiling exterior, Anna was drilling me on my lines.  Not the lines from the rhyme.  I knew them.  But the new material I wrote especially for the World Premiere for Save the Children. The entire business with the Queen of the Sidh and the Waifs was still a bit fuzzy.  By mid-morning, the mist had cleared from the North Courtyard and with Anna's help, the fog in my brain was dissipating, too.
Dennis and Steve Ramsey of Dennis Ramsey Publicity Photographers took the official photos of the World Premiere performance and banquet.  I am also most grateful for the use of several unofficial photos submitted by guests and crew.
