December 19, 2018

After a glorious day off, wandering around The Barbican and enjoying the sights of Plymouth, it’s a two show day with a Press Night tonight! I had a great day off with friends from The Wycombe Panto Wardrobe department- Clare, Steve, Phil and Lizzy, and a great catch-up! Now, it’s time for the shows.

Our Producer Jonathan Kiley has been with us over the past three days, and the show continues with Alex Hetherington in the role of Dick Whittington.Exciting times for Alex- playing to a packed house on Press Night!

In this photo Alex is wearing his glasses- it was taken when he went on with very short notice, and no access to his contact lenses! The Streets of Plymouth were paved with Specsavers!

We had a great Press Night- a real buzz and a genuine standing ovation for Alex- That’s pretty good for a twenty-two year old and well deserved!

Andy and I had great fun with a perky audience. They especially liked the “Haunted Bedroom” scene. Pure Panto Tradition, that- Apt on The Birthday of Joseph Grimaldi- The Original Pantomime Comic & Clown.

After the show we headed for Plymouth Hoe and celebrated with our Producer and special guest Gaston The Dog! Gaston belongs to Ela on Stage Management, and was a huge hit at the pub!

The reviews for The Mayflower Theatre Southampton are in, and the Palladium Production is a winner! Here are a few Photos from their Press Night.
