Another two pantomimes down and we’ve only got eight more shows left! It’s only typical when a performance is finally coming together, that it comes to the end of it’s run. We had a massive group of school children in this morning and then a considerably smaller audience in this afternoon but I don’t think we let the audience difference dampen our energy levels as the second one I thought was just as good as the first one.
You may be wondering why three pantomimes in one day Natalie? Well my mum’s friend had a daughter in a pantomime (Mother Goose) at the Mitchell Arts Centre. This theatre was once called the Mitchell Memorial Theatre and was the place where I kind of first stepped onto a stage knowing that I wanted to perform. It was refurbished a couple of years back so it was extremely humbling coming back to see it decked out and looking right posh!
The show was good and it was nice to actually sit and watch a pantomime rather than to be on the stage, for once. I hope that the rest of week goes well and that there are no more hiccups (fire alarms going off) to affect the show. Sadly though, I missed out on the cast meal tonight for our pantomime but hopefully they had a fabulous time and I can’t wait to get up tomorrow at 6AM to start off another day.
Why do I do this to myself? I could have led a normal 9-5 life. BAH that would be too boring.
