FUSE Theatre of CT will always have a special place in our hearts for Falls Creek Farm, where we filmed several scenes from 'A Midsummer Night's Dream- The Rewired Musical' this past March. The owners and staff could not have been kinder to us-- they even fed us, and the food was SO delicious. It was a long day, so the nourishment was deeply appreciated.
Keep an eye out for the Acts II-IV scenes in 'The Wood', filmed in the most gorgeously decorated log cabin-esque guest house we've ever seen. You can rent that very space out for your special weekend, bride's getaway, or romantic retreat on the farm.
Be sure to say hello to our donkey friends when you go there!
Donkey FACTS, son.
A donkey is stronger than a horse of the same size.
Donkeys have an incredible memory – they can recognize areas and other donkeys they were with up to 25 years ago.
Donkeys are more independent in their thinking than horses and will reason, then make decisions based on their safety.
Donkeys are used as guard animals for cattle, sheep and goats since they have a natural aversion to canines and will keep them away from a flock.
Male donkeys are called jacks. Female donkeys are called jennies or jennets.
Their legs are very powerful and used to scare away predators.
Female donkeys have one of the longest gestation periods in the entire animal kingdom. They're pregnant for anywhere between 10 – 14 months!
A “jackass” actually refers to a mule and not a donkey.
