The print has arrived, and looks brilliant! Excellent design by Kevin Bond and fab printing by Hurricane Print – thank you for a fantastic job!
Am well on the way writing the script, some great bits written, and some fab songs included – am very happy with what I’ve done so far.
Some of today spent back and forth with designer re poster – making artistes bigger and smaller and changing lettering and some wording! Nearly there with it though, so should be able to go to print soon!
Today we met Peter Purves, Dr Who companion and Blue Peter legend…… he will be playing Alderman Fitzwarren in the panto this year. A pleasure to talk to and listen to, we chatted about pantos past, about Busy Bee as a two-hander, about theatres and large sets, and most importantly, we took the poster pics! A lovely afternoon, and a lovely man.
Today we held the press launch for the panto and we also took the pics for the poster. Cerrie Burnell (Fairy) was there, along with Richard Aucott (Sarah the cook), Sophie Massie (Dick), Jessica Pegram (Alice), Grant Coren (King Rat), Roger Andrews (representing the Sarah Andrews Dance Academy) and myself (Idle Jack, among other roles!). We answered questions and gave interviews, posed for photos – and I think we all had a good time! I certainly did!
….and Jessica Pegram as Alice Fitzwarren
On Monday we will have our press launch, and the first chance for some of the cast to get to meet each other! We also will be taking the photos for the poster! I am looking forward to introducing members of the cast to each other…. Harpenden panto, here we come!
