It may only be June, but Sunday was all about panto! Our annual launch is the first time our pantomime cast get to meet each other (if they haven’t already done so) and is also our chance to say hello to the people who will share our theatre for two months over Christmas.
It wasn’t all about the niceties though – it’s always a busy day and this year seemed even busier. Somehow – and with the help of lots of water (it was hot!) and Ben Roddy’s jokes – we managed to do a photo shoot, film our green screen moving posters, interview cast members, film our television advert (you’re in for a treat), and record the radio ads. Phew.
Thanks to everyone (especially the cast) for making it such a productive and fun day. If we’ve started as we mean to go on, it’s going to be some show!
As you can see, pantomime isn’t just for Christmas. The launch is just one of the many activities that take place throughout the year, from casting to curtain up. Read more about this at a later date.
So, here’s Ben Roddy saying hello and introducing you to our wonderful cast.
And now for a glimpse behind the scenes…
