I remember with great fondness Juliet Male being thrown head first into the cauldron each night and watching cast members corpsing at the sight. I still hear the line A Lion, A Lion!! every time I see one.... and who could forget those animal heads especially John Hartnett's big bird impersonation - Bruce Murray, Director
