The performers were trying to drum up attention for their LGBT pride festival called As One In The Park. And Helen is all for that!
So the Dame made sure to let everyone know she supported the cause with a friendly T-shirt advertising the fest.
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see the thoughtful, homemade, 100% cotton apology!
"The irony is I love drumming and I love drummers. In another situation I would have been out here enjoying it with all the punters. Unfortunately, I was having to do a play at the same time."
The drummers more than understood- several came back the next night to apologize to Helen! But her tee's back said it all- it featured a drawing of a drum and said:
"Yes Please! Just not outside a theatre!"
Geez, Helen. What's with all the exclamation points? Keep it down, ok? LOLz!
