Lichfield here I come

Panto Fans!!

 

Sorry it’s taken me so long to write anything!

 

Where do I start.. I’ll start with news, and work back me thinks!

 

This Christmas I am delighted to be bringing my dame home, and to my local theatre -  The Lichfield Garrick, it’s such an honour and a delight to be asked to play so close to home. The other amazing thing is that I am bringing the show I did in my other pantomime home - Yeovil - last year! Sleeping Beauty by Evolution is one of the best scripts I have ever worked with, and it’s going to leave the people of Lichfield and beyond amazed, with a set piece in act 2 to get EVERYONE excited and laughing, it will be one of the biggest things Lichfield has ever seen! So I look forward to seeing as many friends as possible at the show this Christmas!

 

This Easter, a first for me, I did Easter Panto - Beauty and the Beast, with Sir Keith of the Chegwin, Anne Hegerty from The Chase, and British Legend - Basil Brush! The tour went all over the shop, from north to south and most places in between! It was a right laugh, and a real treat to take my Dame places I wouldn’t usually go! Keith was a dream to work with, and I can now see why Bradley Walsh has such a laugh on The Chase, making Anne giggle on stage was just a joy! And when you get to act along side a National Treasure like Basil Brush, what more can you ask for!

 

Last Christmas saw my third outing for panto in Yeovil, I will be sad to say goodbye to my Christmas home as I had such a good time down in Cider country! The Octagon is one of THE nicest theatres I’ve had the pleasure to work at, and that’s down to the staff lead by the lovely Adam! So a massive thank you to him and the team for putting up with me for the past few Christmas’s! I hope to be back there soon!

 

For now, I am busy planning the rest of my year, seeing where my dame can spring up next, or what I can do different with the rest of the year! After 2 years touring Scooby Doo, it’s nice to have a rest, but I’m also at a loose end!

 

I’ll try and blog a bit more often now I’m back into it! Speak soon fans!
