Our first week of rehearsals went really well and it's going to be a great show.
Chris Jarvis and I went to the switching on of the Christmas Lights over in Christchurch last night, which was great fun. The town centre was absolutely crammed and everyone we spoke to said they'd already booked to see the panto.
Had a wonderful day off today. The weather was fantastic; a lovely walk along the beach at Boscombe and Sunday lunch at Aruba on Bournemouth pier (They're sponsoring the panto so I'm hoping we can have a panto party there at some point in the run... hint,hint.)
Getting stuff ready to pack into car for drive down to Bournemouth tomorrow. Hope it all fits. Got to leave some space for Lynette and Winnie (the yorkie-poo) this year. Might have to strap one of them to the roof (but which one?)
Got two new costumes this year - one I bought on ebay (thanks to Pat Moss for altering it to fit and adding a zip in the back), and one designed and made by Jeannie Day (my wardrobe mistress from last year in Basingstoke) which is ab fab. Thanks Jeannie.
Oh yes, I also had my two (hard) wigs refurbed by Kevin & Gerry at Wig Art so a big "thank you" to them too ( http://www.wig-art.co.uk/ )
