So we all went off to Blackpool, sat through what seemed like hundreds of awards for musicals...best actor in a musical, best actress in a musical,best musical director in a musical, best director in a musical etc, etc, and what were we beaten by in best pantomime category yes a musical, Beauty and the flippin Beast!
Now this is not sour grapes..What am I talking about it is! I am currently having a rethink about doing Red Riding Hood next year. I am thinking of taking a more original approach which I think will give us more chance of an award.
What about Hannibal Lecter the Pantomime. A fairy story about a mass serial killer who eats his victims. Should make a great cookery sketch and something our dame can get her teeth into. Or we could do The Exorcist the Pantomime, a great bedroom scene with lots of slapstick. Or Emmanuel the Pantomime ....ok I'll shut up now, but you get the picture. No, we will plod on trying to provide traditional high quality traditional family pantomime and hang the awards.
Enough of the rant. I promise next weeks blog will be back to it's light hearted best.
