Boxing Day Snow White 2021

December 26, 2021
A Boxing Day Greeting!

Boxing Day! Following a very lovely Christmas Day off. I was joined by Andrew Ryan- up from the Hippodrome “Goldilocks”, and we had a great day here in Hull. Took the opportunity to drive and walk around the Marina, and despite being bitterly cold, enjoyed the fresh air and a lot of good food!

Today’s show was at 1pm and again at 5pm. Both very jolly shows- the matinee had a lot of smaller children in, and the 5pm one more adults- I think our enjoyment of this show comes across to the audiences- it is a warm reception, and again we are all so grateful just to be working on Boxing Day when so many of our mates are not.

Nightie Nightie!

Great atmosphere after Christmas, finding out how Christmas Day was for Other folk, and hearing their stories. Andrew Ryan now back in Hippodrome is rehearsing today for the replacement of Matt Slack with Scotland’s own Johnny Mack. Matt has Covid and will be out of the Panto for the seven days coming up, isolating, and at incredibly short notice Johnny has come from his Panto closing in Glasgow on Christmas Eve to take over at The Hippo until Matt’s return.

So its back to work for us, all still hoping things continue here, and across England so that we can keep working and keep carrying on with the traditional Christmas Entertainment known as Pantomime.

Tonight I zoomed with Rob Laws in Crewe Panto and Will Jackson in Milton Keynes Panto, and chatted to Sherrie Hewson on a break from rehearsing “Fat Friends”, as well as catching up with the news from The Bristol and Birmingham Hippodromes.

Tomorrow we have the 1pm and 5pm shows again.
