A Blast From The Past!
I was recently going through and sorting photographs from pantomimes productions and as often when one does this looking back at the past I found myself smiling and occasionally chuckling out aloud at many fun and crazy memories... and believe me there were so many! "Oh yes there were!"
It set me thinking about how my interest in writing pantomime scripts began and how my connections and interactions with a variety of wonderful and like minded people have helped me on my way in developing my script writing and creating the Pantomime Website. I'd always loved pantomime from the first time I saw my first Show at four years old and now love to share the pantomime fun with those who also love this quirky and very British genre of live theatre, where in breaking down that fourth wall anything can happen and often does! (...and the stories that I could tell about what goes on back stage still make me laugh out loud!)
Although over the last few years all the original scripts have been extensively re-written in order to keep pace with current news and culture and many brand new scripts have been written, (many for commissions- and thank you for that!) much of what made the performance of these tales fun in the beginning still remains because of the input and participation of many of these good folk. I probably would not have achieved all that I have in this crazy pantomime world without them and their continued support... and I thank them all!
Over the next two weeks I will be writing about some of those fun memories and laughs from past pantomime productions and mentioning some of these talented individuals(Watch this space!) and this idea has spurred me on to create this year's Crazy Fox special offer for followers and customers. I have decided that selected pantomime scripts which have specific behind the scenes stories and special links to some of those fabulous folk who have supported and still do support the world of the crazy fox will be offered (FANFARE!) at half price until June 23rd 2017... (Four half price scripts are available on the website now, Cinderella, Robin Hood, Red Riding Hood and Peter Pan- more will be added!) and I wish a happy panto world to you all!
