So... how is it going?
Latest news from The Den...
We are pleased to say that the script of Goldilocks is finished (Hurray!) but took longer to complete than originally planned.(Boo!- you can tell we're panto' folk really can't you?) We hope it will be well received now it is available on the website (after critique and proof reading and nervous wobbles- Oh yes, there was!) We're definitely too pantomime! (Especially with the the use of parentheses?)
Lilleshall Pantomime and Drama group who produced our Wizard of Oz script reported that they all had a lot of fun with it and it was well received by the audience. They are already reading new preview scripts and say they would be happy to use a Crazy Fox script again for next year's Show (Which is nice!) The Group who produced our new Jack and the Beanstalk script (Henley Players) also reported they had a great time, which makes our job worthwhile, and they gave us useful feedback and permission to use some photographs on the website. We may provide the scripts but the hard work and magic takes place on the stage so well done all!
Our version of Aladdin goes into production soon for Starlight Productions at The Arena Theatre in Wolverhampton and a Champagne reception beckons!
Happily all our scripts have been requested for preview readings so we wait to hear... if they are chosen for performance, we often open a bottle of bubbly (any excuse!)
and if not... we're philosophical, after all you can't win 'em all!
Our versions of The Little Match Girl, Pinocchio and a new script, The Crazy Story of Jekyll and Hyde, have all been planned and story boarded and we are looking forward to the writing and the laughs that will ensue as they take shape on the page (well lap-top!)
Finally we were commissioned to write a mini-panto' of the story of Dick Whittington. This proved to be an hilarious experience as we tried to cram the whole story into a manic ten minute 'sketch'! Having enjoyed the challenge of this commission so much we are thinking of writing more mini- panto' suitable for cabaret or comedy slots in small venues... an why not? We like a challenge!
Our news is therefore that the Crazy Foxes are busy-busy and buzzing as ever... 'Oh yes we are!' (And don't we love it!)
