Aladdin – Closed

Alas, Aladdin has had to close early for financial reasons.  It is a real shame as it really was a great show with a great bunch of people working on it.  I’ve made some lovely new friends who I’m sure to keep in touch with and by and large the audiences have been fabulous (bar …

Aladdin – more stuff…

Today is only my second day off since 14th December – 29 shows with only Christmas Day off!  I’m shattered!  Anyhow, it’s going really well and the show is still in fantastic shape.  Since Ray Quinn left us, Owen Thompson has been playing Aladdin and he has been wonderful.  It’s great working with him on …

The 2008 Tree-athlon in Manchester

HELP WANTED!

Right, along with my new projects of learning two new languages (not saying which ones until I’m half-decent at them!), I have been challenged by a good friend of mine, Fiona J Keats, with whom I’m doing panto this year, to learn the ukulele BEFORE PANTO STARTS!  I begin rehearsals on 17th November so need to …
