  My Edinburgh Festival Diary: Act III
Updated 12 August 2002, 15.35

Amy, 15, from Hertford and Fran, 14, from Ipswich are performing a play called Out of Character, on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Together they bring you the low-down on what the final few days performing at the Festival was like.

Thursday 8 August
Today's been amazing. Lizo came with the Newsround film crew and spent the whole day filming us! They took shots of us publicising our show on the streets of Edinburgh and filmed our performance in the afternoon. It was great 'cos the TV cameras got us really noticed and loads more people came to watch the show.

Friday 9 August
Today has been almost more exciting than yesterday as we waited to watch ourselves on Newsround. Our play went extra well today too, though we have to admit to feeling a bit tired now. After the show we all trouped to a hotel to watch Newsround and ourselves on the telly. It was really exciting despite the only shot of me (Fran) being of the back of my head!

It's so sad tomorrow's our last day here. This has been the experience of a lifetime.

Saturday 10 August
Our last day has definitely been one to remember, with our final performance going really well. In the evening we all went for a meal and Hannah, who's a member of the cast, gave a brilliant speech. It was really sad to think our trip was coming to an end. Later on we all went to a show called Derevo, which was physical theatre in a circus tent. It was really strange and confusing, not to mention shocking in parts!

As we walked home, exhausted but very happy, the sky was lit up with fireworks from the Edinburgh Tattoo. It was spectacular and the perfect ending to one of the best experiences we've ever had.
