The Final two shows here at Venue Cymru! The time has flown since the rehearsal rooms in Pimlico, and 37 performances in this 1,400 seater auditorium!

I have – with the help of Irene and Gwen alternating- changed my costume a total of 608 times this season, if you include the Dress Rehearsal!Excluding the strip routine which has twelve layers!

The both shows went hugely well, and ended with John and Robin thanking everybody here at the venue including the musicians, crew, wardrobe, front of house staff and stewards for making it such a huge success.

“Its Behind You!”

Christina packed my two skips, one with  wigs, the other with accessories and shoes, as we went along. She has done this before- two years ago, in “Sleeping Beauty”- and by finale all that remained was the walkdown costume and headdress to pack. Not bad going!

Packed houses, and hugely appreciative. We’ve had visits from Michael Harrison, Jake Hind, Ollie Ashmore, Mark Sherwood and of course Nick Thomas from Qdos office, and had some great press while we’ve been here.

So- with my own Prince to whisk me away- Ricky that is, giving me a lift to a service station on the M6 where i change cars, like a heist! I sadly leave the gorgeous town of Llandudno and Venue Cymru.

I love this picture of Paul Sampson’s. My favourite! It looks like a traditional Panto picture that couldbe from any era- Timeless!

Thanks to everyone, including Michael Gyngell for the most warm and happy company here at in Llandudno. Nanny Myfanwy dids you goodnight, and will be reborn as Poison Ivy, the Giant’s Wicked Fairy at The Brick Lane Music Hall in just about ten days time! Watch This Space!
