Young Sherlock Holmes

As the fortunate one who was cast as King Bubonic III, I would like to pass on my congratulations to Craig for a superbly written script. It was fast, funny and an absolute joy to perform in. The comments from the audience were extremely positive, both of the Pantomime and the cast. Well done & thank you.

Rain On Me

Having performed in the North East area one act play festival at the Georgian Theatre Royal with Rain on Me I wanted to let you know our production achieved the People's Award for the Best Festival Production. I must tell you this play was loved by our audience who were laughing so much they had tears in their eyes! The young performers loved working on such a moving yet funny script that was totally relevant to them. As director it was a joy to find a play for my teenage members that allowed them to work on comedy and at the same time feel the emotion that Kevin/Romeo and his friends would have experienced. Please pass on my congratulations to the writer who has created a work that our members will never forget.

Jack and The Beanstalk

A good, novel pantomime written with the family in mind, it's full of fun and frivolity, jokes and silly nonsense, with a good smattering of visual comedy. The only problem I had is that while it would be absolutely excellent for audiences above the border, it would need many words and phrases changed just slightly so that the average English audience can understand what is being said even though it does say in the front of the script that it "...must be played as per the script, and without alterations..." I feel that for English audiences it would need to be altered slightly. Of course, with written permission from the publisher.

There are a good number of musical numbers with 'suggestions' written in, which can be very useful if one can't think of a song to suit any particular moment in the play, although one isn't bound to use the suggested songs. There is plenty of opportunity to put in references to local events and places which is always good in a pantomime script and lots of audience participation, also a very important part of the whole evening's entertainment.

The characters are fun and there are plenty of them. The main characters have been written in such a way that each one of them will engender good rapport and feeling with the audience. I am sure English actors will love the characters once they have come to terms with the dialogue and what means. Cuddle, 'the Coo' is a very good character for a pair of actors and as long as they learn the part thoroughly and are directed well, it will be the star of the show. The same goes for the Dame, 'Clootie Dumpling', a typical panto dame with equal measures of warmth, love, feistiness and fun. The Baddie, Baron Boggin Bogle is sufficiently bad to get the audience worked up into a frenzy of fear and fright and with the cacophony of boos and hisses I can almost hear already I am sure mayhem will ensue.

The two Bouncers, Permatan Pete and Frankie Fakebake are two good characters in the traditional mould of the two nasty twits, and nasty twits they are too. The two posh folk, Facia Hoarse and Farquhar Snot make a nice change to the very broad Scottish accents that are required for the other characters.

The characters fit together well and the pace is kept up throughout the script; there appears to be no weak spots, so with good direction and positive dedication by the cast, a very good pantomime could be brought to life. I am certain I would enjoy watching this panto.

The Story of Snow White

It (The Story of Snow White) was fantastic ... our best one yet! (so I've been told) It was hard work as I produce and direct ... and also played the queen. We have children as young as 2 in it! The hard work definitely paid off so thank you very much.

Sinbad The Sailor

... shipwrecks, kidnaps and lots of fun and thrills. This will appeal to many clubs with all the traditional elements of pantomime but with a bit of Eastern promise.
Scene, February 2001
