Panto Time!

My local venue (Clwyd Theatr Cymru) are doing "Sleeping Beauty : The Rock 'n' Roll Panto" this year. The "rock 'n' roll pantos" are something of a tradition there these days - they started doing them a fair few years back, initially as studio productions while a Dickens Christmas musical (or something similar) played on the main stage, then moving them into the main house in place of the Dickens stuff, and they go down a storm with people coming from fair and wide to see them. It's already been open for a couple of weeks, and it runs until the end of January. I did a few days' work on the fit-up in November, and as per usual I'll probably end up board-op'ing some shows over the holidays to cover leave for the full-time staff. Don't mind too much, though - it's not often that I can get from a place of work to my house in less than 15 minutes ; and they're damned good shows, chock-full of classic 60s, 70s and 80s tunes!


Other than that, this year for me is mercifully a panto-free zone! :stagecrew: :)

Peter Pan at Hazlitt in Maidstone (thanks to the blue room (see JSB's advert))


Opened on 3rd Dec and running to 9th Jan... its a busy one :stagecrew:


We have probably the most hi-tech tinkerbell ever... some very clever person had the idea of using a DL1.


Its all a shame we keep flying peter pan into the scenery tho!

Hmmm I go away for the day and some bugger knicks my idea for a thread!


I am on the Panto trail down in Poole with Beauty and the Beast, board oping for the next 4 weeks, having looked after the LX side of the fitup last week.


Now desperately thinking of reading material to keep me sane...

From the world of Amdram I have "Babes in the wood" at the end of January to look forward too. Such a success over the last few years that they have added an extra performances. We now have the breathtakingly huge run of 5 performances.
