Acting the goat

By mrswoolybill
A centre-fold for Goat-fanciers' Weekly? The story for this one is actually very simple.
A few weeks ago I showed you the work that Mortal Fools theatre group have been doing with local young people, using improvised performance space in an empty shop.
They also put on a professional production for the town. I wanted a picture of the cast for next year's Town Calendar, but their schedule was tight, I had just a few minutes to get some pictures after a matinee, before everyone disappeared for some well deserved downtime before the evening show.
Then Feggis the mountain goat jumped onto the sofa and started posing...
I have photographed goats before but never doing come-hither.
The version is the 2019 calendar picture, it needed a bit of cheating but I don't think anyone buying the calendar will notice...
The story is a sort of Peer Gynt for children - a stroppy young girl ventures into the mountains to rescue her Grandpa, but also to fight her inner demons which then materialise horribly.
Thanks for looking,
