It's Behind You!

The 'form' panto - "Cinderella: A Life-shaping Experience" - was a triumph of creativity over good taste. Special mention deserves to be made of Ben Askew as an Ugly Sister and Owen Smith as a fairy. To think I could have been trapped on a plane for a lot of hours with both of them in two weeks' time (not to mention sharing a hotel room for a week; but as it turns out neither of them could do the Nepal trip this time round - a lucky escape, I [now] feel).

The performance was truly appalling...which is exactly what panto is supposed to be! Which is to say, it was a fantastic night out. (Oh no it wasn't! Oh yes it was!) And I believe they raised between £3,000-3,500 for charity in the process - which is pretty impressive over just two performances, on one day. Congratulations to all involved!

  1. thanks Andrew, glad you enjoyed it. Don't get too worried though. I don't think I'll me donning the makeup and skirt again for a while.
