4th December 2014  Aladdin, Hull New Theatre

Back after a great day off. I had a nostalic return to York, which is about an hour away. Haven’t visited there in years, and what a stunning place it is on a Christmas time! Market stalls and Christmas windows, and of course, tea at “Betty’s”! A really lovely day away from twice daily shows to recharge batteries!

Today we had a totally packed matinee of over 1,300 children. About eighty of them were delayed, and entered during Sherrie’s entrance. She coped very well as they walked across the front and sat, unwrapping their sandwiches and drinks during her introduction to the Village Of “One Long Poo”!

The matinee was amazing for James Abanazar. They howled at his every entrance, and appreciated true Panto Villainy at its best! They love the sword fight between James and Sam at the end too- proper swords and all that!

Twankey about to disrobe!

The show went pretty fast today- the audience of school children carrying you along with their sheer enthusiasm. All up on their feet singing and dancing to “Happy” by the curtain call.

When they returned to the vast array of coaches, I descended to the basement dressing rooms and indulged in comfort food- Heinz tomato soup before an hour of engaging with the Primark duvet. Still need to get the last vestiges of cold to go away- James is nearly there too, and Sherrie so much better.

After the show a good few of us went to an Indian restaurant and had a jolly quiet meal- about sixteen of us, and an early night. The streets outside are wet and miserable, so it was a welcome break to sit and chat. Tomorrow we have two shows- the matinee will be packed with school parties again- I had a message from John Evans about the schol parties singing heartily to the front of house music before the show at Llandudno, and they do the same here at Hull!.
