Missed the panto? (Oh, no, you didn't!)

I know how gutted everyone unable to see the panto must be. So, it's thrilling to be able to tell you there is still time to catch my astonishing performance. (Yes, I can type with my tongue wedged firmly in my cheek.)

Until the end of December, the panto is available for anyone to download in two parts.

The first part includes Miss Mara's Gabriola children's dance troupe doing their opening number and act one, during which I appear not once, but twice!

The second part includes act two and a slide show. I do make an appearance in the final scene of act two: one word of dialogue and a sight gag. Blink and you could miss it. Keep an eye on the left side of the stage.

I know everyone's probably far too busy to sit down and watch a two hour show, but do (if you're remotely interested) take a few minutes to download now in order to watch later. As noted, the files will be taken down after the end of December, so, like my appearance in act two, if you blink you'll miss it.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Ho, ho, ho.

Panto in pics

Well, for those who weren’t there (which is pretty much everyone) and those who were and are now eager for of how much fun it was, here are some pics.

Widow Wobbly discovers a giant talking rat in her house.

General Scurvy trumpets the arrival of the Rat King.

The Rat King tries to remember why he’s there.

The Rat King is not very pleased with the day’s scraps.

Muddles and the Mayor work on plans for the village festival.

Widow Wobbly tells the Mayor her brilliant idea.

That’s Amore (or what was left of it after the cuts).

Muddles recruits the Pied Piper to rid the village of the rats. (The evil Piper comes up with his own evil plan.)

Oh, no! The rats are captured and the Piper is now the Mayor. (Oh, no he isn’t. Oh, yes, he is!)

Rattles and Daisy to the rescue.

The Piper about to be foiled.

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. (Yes, that’s really what we’re all singing.)

Taking a bow.

Final cast photo for 2011.

See you next year.
