Panto Script Writing Promo

Posted on

Finally getting round to a bit of promotion for my script writing. Panto season is all but over so its time to think about next year.

The first draft of the promo booklet can be downloaded here – promo-booklet

As well as full pantomime scripts I also offer  –

Rewriting / Updating
You may already have a script, but feel it lacks something. Have you a cast member that has a special talent; are you short on people to play all the parts; would you like an extra character added to the story? I can help. Contact me and we’ll chat.

Stage Adaptations
Is there a book or story that you would like to perform on stage. I can write the script for you.

Song Lyric Rewrites
If you have a song in mind for your Panto, but the words don’t quite fit with the story i can take your song choice and change the lyrics so they fit with the music and the plot.

Jokes
Have you had a script knocking around for years. Are some of the jokes out-of-date? Send us a copy and we’ll see what we can do. Topical jokes, local references, modern slants added.

Lighting / Sound
Need help with lighting or on the sound desk. Give me a call. I use Daslight lighting controller that can link into most theatres lighting systems.

Posters / Flyers / Programmes
If you need posters designed or printed, or if you want a souvenir programme created, I can help.

The stage is put away, costumes are washed, the lights are powered down and the actors and crew are finally able to relax. It has been a tough year with the loss of Kate, but we hope that we have done her proud.

We would like to thank everyone who came to see the show. we had a blast and hope you did too.

New Hours! New Me?

Posted on

Change can be good. 

For the past couple of years I have been working twelve hour shifts 3 or 4 days a week. When we were given these hours I thought it would be easy. Friday off every week and only two Thursdays a month. No problem!!

But it didn’t work out that way. I have always been a sucker for long hours – often doing two jobs during the day and then gig promoting at night. But times change. I’ve changed. I am no longer a young guy and twelve hours of hard manual work takes it’s toll. I cannot remember the last time I didn’t have a bad back or when I’d come home from work and didn’t want to just crawl into bed. I’m often grumpy, my health suffers, my frame of mind suffers. I am constantly tired. Read the rest of this entry »

Worcester Music Festival – A Brief History of Stress and Gratitude.

Posted on Updated on

When ‘The Big Book of Worcester Who’s Who’ is written (you never know, it might one day) I hope the authors will find it in their hearts to include the following as a lasting reminder of a small town boy who dared to dream. 

“In 2007 I had a dream. A dream that would bring musicians, venues, music lovers and the general public together in a festival of love, appreciation and enjoyment of live music whilst helping those less fortunate than ourselves. This dream was a dream I dreamt and foolishly tried to make it reality. And a reality it became, born with the co-operation of like-minded people my dream was fulfilled and I could live my life knowing that I had achieved something, and I saw that it was good.”

That is what I hope they’ll print.

In reality I probably won’t get a mention or possibly, if I’m lucky, they’ll write
“Chris Bennion, nice guy, put on a few gigs, called it Worcester Music Festival and then gave up.”
