and we're off....again

It was quite a hard ten days of rehearsal but as always we laughed our way through it. Ed Curtis our director is so easy to work with. This our 4th panto with him and we work so well as a team. He never pushes any ideas on us. Its suggested something and then we discuss it. A joy. I must admit I wasn't altogether happy after the first two shows. It wasn't quite right. But Michael Harrison, our producer, arrived on Saturday and his well trained eye came up with some great ideas and by Sunday matinee we were flying. As ever the audiences carry us along on wave and by Sunday night, although I was absolutely knack....tired I was feeling great and ready to do 81 more shows. I had a massage from my lovely little Angie Blackwell, who said my back and neck were very tense. I had a great relaxing day off on Monday and I'm now ready to take the world on.
It was funny, as I relaxed on the Sunday night my mind immediately started thinking about the Big Big show in February. I am very pleased to announce that Elaine C Smith is starring in the show this year. Along with Pilot.....yes.....Wow oh oh its Magic. The Mac Roberts Bros are appearing, however wee Boaby has left the group to pursoooooooo a solo career. Just like Boaby Williams left Take That.
But big Boaby with will be with Boaby and who knows maybe a surprise member may be joining the act.
So the sun is shining and we will await the press verdict of 'Jack' with baited breath.
Speak to you all soon.

Hi Ya

Well the nights are fair drawing in..... a sure sign that I'm getting my fat body suit out of the cupboard, my bra, and my tights.......Yes that's right is drag night down the pub. No its panto time. It comes round faster every year. A sure sign that I'm getting older. We had a late photo session this year, just last week, where we all get together and do photos for this year, Jack and the Beanstock and photos for next year.....Cinderella. Yes that's right I'm still being booked back. This year was supposed to be the end of my 6 year deal....but.....they have given me a new 6 year deal. Its getting silly now. All those years ago, 20 I think, I said to my then manager sorry I don't want to sign for 3 years. Well thanks to Qdos and the lovely Duncan Hendry at the Kings they still want me.
I'm negotiating at the moment with a wonderful name for my Big Big show in February. But as its not confirmed I cant say who it is. However if it comes off it will be a cracking show. I already have Grant and Pilot....remember Magic and January, confirmed so the big name will be the icing on the top of the Greggs steak bake.
Its been a great year. The cruising was great this year. The Cunard ships were really buzzing in the summer. Everyone is the family is busy. Kate's new single, out next year, is written and produced by David. So its all in the family. Jane has Take That and Robbie on tour next year, so I wont see much of her as she travels round Europe. I'll just have to join her when possible. Ok speak after we open.
