————————————–

This year I’m involved in Malborough Pantomime again (I’ll be in the musicians pit – who knows what might happen if I ever ended up on a stage)! It’s always good to catch up with village life and it’s wonderful seeing everyone work together to put on such a brilliant event.

MAD kids put on an incredible show this year too, with their production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat rivalling many of the professional shows I’ve seen. I’m fairly certain we’ll be seeing some familiar friendly faces performing in the West End in a few years!

Anyway, I’ve hope you’ve all had a very Merry Christmas and – if I don’t post in the next few days – have a Happy New Year! 🙂

M.A.D. Pantomime a massive success!

Pantomime is over and I’m still trying to refrain from shouting things like “It’s behind you… Oh yes it is!” at confused strangers. My favourite part happened on the Saturday night, when one of the props broke and resulted in some rude (but very funny) improvised lines from the cast, involving flying baubles and rather squeaky voices.

Overall, it was a massive success – The tickets were almost completely sold out and I enjoyed the whole week, despite having seen the pantomime more than 8 times, which says a lot about the quality of the script and the community atmosphere. It was nice to see so many of the actors/chorus helping out with the costumes too and as a result, the costumes this year were stunning.

It’s a shame it’s all over, but I’m really looking forward to next year and hoping it’ll be even better!

On a completely unrelated note, if you’re interested in experimental music, this look like a great idea: Here’s a record player that has been modified to translate tree rings into music.
