The past two days have been a bit of a blur- My chest infection seems to have decided to go out with a great deal of coughing and spluttering, and James and Sherrie are coughing and generally feeling a bit grim- all we can do is dose up, keep warm and from the front you’d never know! Hopefully it is going away- fingers crossed.

We’ve had school parties in each matinee, packed to the rafters, and more mixed audiences in the evening shows- a good crowd they are too. The children are always delighted if Twankey picks on their male teacher to be her boyfriend, and much fun ensues!

James (Pullam) has started “Crossword Club” in the Stage Right Scene Dock, and Marion and I contribute from our quick change room, joined by Sherrie, Twinkle and any passing crew during the bits when we are not on stage, obviously! The cast is starting to have social events now that we have finally opened and are running. The Princess of China hosting an “At Home” this (Thursday) evening for all. Sadly I’m not there, same with Sherrie- we have an early call in the morning to do a short piece to camera for the local news “Calendar” at 10.30 along with James P & Callum. Full costume and make-up! So its an early night for me.

I’m beating the chest thing with lots of sleep- getting up late, sleeping a full hour and a half between shows, and early nights. Boring, but the best way to get better quicker.

Starting to get reports from all over about Pantomimes opening, and hearing the news from mates as we emerge from technical rehearsals and settle into runs.

This week we have the full twelve shows. People start to settle into a routine. Typically you find people sitting or perching in the same place at the same time now as habits start to form. A good few cast go out between shows, some to a local pub for dinner, some back to their nearby digs for a break. Some, like my good self never go out between, and just settle down for a nap- but you can see routines beginning to establish themselves all around the building.
