Month: November 2017
For those that know we you may be aware that I have been writing Pantomime scripts for a couple of years now.
It all started about 7 years ago when I was helping out at my wife’s’ Panto Group backstage. I was ‘forced’ to endure numerous rehearsals and performances when I idly (*and jokingly) mentioned that I thought I could write a better script. My wife then said “well, go on then!” … so I tried.
I wrote Cinderella, gave it to the company not really expecting them to read it, and waited. They read a few scripts that year and finally decided that they would use mine. A few tweaks here and there and they loved it.
I have been writing for them ever since. And I love it.
January 2018 sees them perform my 5th script “The Magnificent Seven Knights of Camelot.” … or ‘Camelot‘ so I can fit it on the posters. and even if I do say so myself, it’s great. Full of great characters, loads of jokes, one liners and set pieces. I am really looking forward to seeing what the group do with it.
It will be performed at Norton Parish Hall on January 11-13 2018 – and tickets can be bought from the online shop or their box office lady.
I am now in the process of editing and updating all my scripts I have written so far (including a couple for another theatre group who are performing my version of Peter Pan this year) and creating a website to showcase them and offer them to other companies. WATCH THIS SPACE.
We’re back, and this time it’s festive.
After the success of our summer event (even though it rained even though the weather forecasters said it would be sunny ) we have decided to return for a festive special Craft Fayre (the forecast is for snow and hail so we expect sun and light breeze)
We will have two rooms of crafters selling their wares, doing demos and being generally wonderful.
There will be coffee, tea, hoot chocolate, soft drinks, Mulled Wine, mince pies and cake in the Crafters Cafe where you will also be able to try a few crafts for yourself.
If that wasn’t enough we may even have some carols and / or festive live music to get you in the christmas (and spending money) spirit..
If you are a crafter and would like a table at this event, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07472 590055

Tables are £10 (and a small donation to our charity / good cause raffle)
