It’s that time of year again when the company all congregate at the Theatre Severn for the launch of the pantomime. It’s always a shock putting the face back on after such a long time, I have to look at last years leaflet to remember what goes where. As I was leaving thr dressing room for the photo call something felt wrong, it was eagle eyed Matt Dallen who told me I hadn’t put any eyelashes on, how you girls manage it every day I’ll never know! It was a pleasure to see some old familiar faces and to welcome a new cast member to the Theatre Severn pantomime fold.

This year I shall be playing the title role of Mother Goose and am delighted to welcome back Eric Smith as the Squire, Matt Dallen as Billy Goose, Victoria McCabe as Jill and Matt Daines as Demon Vanity. Many of you will remember the wonderful Matt Daines when he played Ugly Sister in Cinderella a couple of years ago, this year you’ll get to see him without the make up (but perhaps just a little blush)

We will be joined by the irrepressible Lisa Davina Phillip who will be reprising her role as Fairy Goodfeather.

Rehearsals will commence mid November and before you know it we’ll be open, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
