    Thanks to all for playing last night.:hat2:

    Answers given below.

    Spoiler:
    Show

    1. Boston is of course the capital of Massachusetts.
    2. Michael Caine played Ebeneezer Scrooge in the Muppets Christmas Carol.
    3. Despite earlier short films featuring Mickey Mouse; the first Disney full feature film was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Points were given for simply Snow White because I'm geneous.
    4. Tito, Jackie and Jermaine Jackson, the three eldest siblings in the family, were the original members of the Jackson Brothers, which then became the Jackson Five.
    5. Mercury has the unusual property of a very low melting point. The lowest of all metals in the periodic table.
    6. Acrophobia is the fear of heights. Not vertigo, despite popular belief.
    7. 'the eve of All Saints' Day' is better known as Halloween. (coming soon to a forum near you:ninja:)
    8. Marianne Vos is a big name in cycling. The Netherlands' athlete has taken part in many different cycling disciplines, so I won't accept track cycling.
    9. Diurnal is the opposite of nocturnal. For those who didn't know I hoped you've learnt something from this quiz.
    10. The music that commemorates the Battle of Borodino is the 1812 overture.



    Next quiz, tonight 6pm (I am genuine this time). Sorry for anyone unable to make it.

    Tagging everyone who has posted between now and the when it started last night.

    8/10, damn I would have done much better in this quiz than the one I participated in.

    might potentially get some answers in between being on stage depending on if we're doing act 1 or act 2 at that point...
    Have fun if I miss it though!

    :lol: When you really don't know it's a case of guessing something reasonable. You must have got the chemistry question last night at least?

    Yep :banana: Tech rehearsal yesterday (which seriously took over double the length of the show even though we weren't doing whole scenes, we were just doing cues fr different bits and the chorus numbers), and dress rehearsal today And a performance today and tomorrow...thankfully my college broke up yesterday though...usually I start half term half dead after 3 days of solid rehearsals/performances and school...and with all my homework neglected so hopefully this time I can actually make my half term productive!
