Today was the official launch of this years pantomime at the Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury. I travelled down this morning and was extremely excited to see the theatre having never been before. The Theatre Severn is only a couple of years old and sits in a wonderful position next to the bridge with the river flowing past it, truly beautiful.
The inside is just as stunning as the outside and myself and the cast were warmly welcomed by the entire staff. After a quick tour of the venue it was time to become ‘Twankey’ again. I haven’t made up for eight months but it’s amazing how you go into auto pilot and before you know it, Twankey is looking back at you from the dressing room mirror.
It was nice to meet up with the rest of the cast, some of us had met at the photo shoot earlier this year but this was the first time we were all together.
The remainder of the day was taken up with production meetings and going through song choices. I can’t wait to get started now, I have a feeling that it’s going to be a great show.
