Saturday 30th November 2019

A very full day in Pantoland. This morning the final adding the Pearl Shaw Juveniles into the scenes, and working on another scene involving the children and Ensemble.

At Twelve Thirty Sherrie left for a visit downstairs (it is a huge building this!) to a craft fair in aid of charity. It was a “Have a sherry with Sherrie” hour- she’s a very popular lady, loose or otherwise, so our hour turned into a bit longer. It was a great walk about and some excellent Christmas themed crafts and characters in the room!

The Fairest In the Lland- dudno……..well, it is Panto time!

Accompanied by Richard & Lucy from VC Marketing the event was a great opportunity to pass on the panto word. A very hasty lunch, then back to the rehearsal room (Two flights up) for our very first “Stagger Through” the show without stopping!

The Lunch Bunch- Pearl Shaw dancers grab a quick bite.

We started at 2.pm and the first half was around sixty minutes. That will, I’m sure slim down a bit- In “Sleeping Beauty” most of the plot is in Act One.. Well, basically Act Two is “Wakey Wakey” and we’re off to the pub, but it has the special magical effects and all of us gorgeous people in it to make it gorgeous!

Carabosse and her Minions! 

We got through the entire show which I think was rather jolly, and a good way to start the day off for us- tomorrow is our free day in Llandudno. It is, however NOT a free day for the resident Stage Crew of Venue Cymru, or for David Morgan our production Manager. Avid readers of this Dame Blog will recall David was company manager here Last time I did “Sleeping Beauty”- he’s the one that commutes from Malta. Small world, isn’t it?

The Pearl Shaw juveniles and Chaperones.

All through Saturday and Sunday large trucks are arriving from Qdos HQ and from The Twins FX to be unloaded at the dock doors of VC. My costumes will be amongst them, and will stay in the dock until the Quick Change Room is created on Stage Left. We wear costumes for the first time on Wednesday.

The second half was forty-five minutes, so we know we are on track more or less.

Goes without saying- A beautiful sight on a Sunny Sunday in Llandudno. The company met up at “The Albert” pub and had a carvery roast Sunday lunch. This time next week we will be doing I think an 11am show and a 3pm show!

Just a glorious walk along this promenade to work every morning- THAT is what comuting should be like! Rehearsals 10am tomorrow in the VC Rehearsal room.
