Saturday 12th January. The Last Day!

January 13, 2019


As predicted, it DID fly past and was over before you knew it! The matinee saw the return of our brilliant interpreter Daryl, who once again gave an amazing “signing” of the show. What a talent!

Between shows both sets of juveniles held a Farewell party Front Of House.


The “Juves” Party

It was great fun, and a lot of photos were taken. What a really great team of young performers we have in the Red & The Blue Teams here at TRP.


Here’s Christian Jones as our Panto Ghost. Yesterday’s 1,200 Primary School Children reached the very highest of decibel levels screaming at him! Its the reason this site was named “Its Behind You!”. It is Still the best Panto Scene ever!Never fails!

I hope I’ve put put some brief footage on this page, I’m never too sure if it works- if it does, you’ll be able to see the and hear the ghost scenes for yourself!

Andrew Ryan arrived yesterday fresh from “Dick Whittington” at Southampton as Sarah The Cook, and from Directing “Cinderella” at Bromley. Today he lent a hand and did my “Get-Out” during the show. So great to have everything wrapped and bagged up by the end of the Finale. A Big Thank You to Mr Ryan!

I must also thank “Team Felicity” – Wardrobe and Sound depts who made my life so much easier through their skill and kindness. To Ryan, Teresa and Jannine (on sound) who got me in and out of the costume changes with ease, with great humour and made it a joy to be a part of their team. Our quick change from Lady Admiral To Sailor just kept beating records. Thank you SO much. Very appreciated.

Empty Room and Full Crates!

At the end of the show I managed a swift goodbye to an amazing crew here at TRP- a pleasure to have been working with you all, and even got to say a quick “hello ” and “Goodbye” to the Twins- Gary & Paul from The Twins FX. They were loading the biggest Rat in Pantoland as I was leaving!

Its been a cracking Pantomime, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working alongside my “son” Andy Ford- we’ve had a great season.

    I’ve loved getting home from the show each night and reading your diary with my mum. I’ve really enjoyed being part of the Dick Whittington cast and you’ve been so kind to all the babes. We’ve been so lucky to have such an amazing pantos dame and we’re going to miss you
