Last Week

Last week was very busy and very exciting for me.  I was a chorus girl in our Pantomime and we did seven performances and I didn't forget my line once!  I did say line, I only had one but I was sooo nervous. Getting together with other cast members that I probably wont see now for months and spending lots of time together, giggling behind the stage curtains, squeezing into the wings (side of the stage) in silly costumes and over the top make up is much fun, and quite nerve-racking.  Most of the time we got our dance steps right and our song words in time, all in all a great time.  We did two performances on Saturday and once the show ended on Saturday night it was off to the pub for a little glass of something then on to the after performance party.  I have to tell you dear friends, I didn't get to bed until 3.30 am and then was back at the hall for 10 am for the huge clear up operation.  Yes we all muck in - nearly 240 chairs have to be put away, racks of costumes sorted and some bought home for washing, lighting has to be taken down, sets dismantled - a very busy morning.  But then it is off to the local pub again for a roast dinner, I have to admit, we got home at 6pm and I was asleep in the chair by 6.15pm he!he!   I have a couple of piccies for you of me in my costumes, there are all sorts of rules about photo taking so I wasn't able to get any of the performance, but hopefully you will get a tiny hint of what it was like.

The villager costume

The hareem costume (my legs aren't that big - its the baggy trousers - honest!)

Today is the first day I am starting to feel back to normality and if I am totally honest - it has gone a little flat.  But never mind only 9 months 'til we start rehearsing the next one, Oh yes it is!!!!!!

Speak soon xx


  1. Kim,
    Hi! You look so pretty in your costumes! Really lovely photos of you. I'm so pleased everything went well for you. I bet it was such a busy week having to go every day. It would have been lovely if all your blogger friends could have been in the audience! :) Sounds as though there is a terrific amount of work back stage too! I'm sure you all earnt that Roast meal! Really nice to finish it off like that.
    Congratulations to you, you've got more courage than me!
    'Now back to that crocheting please!!!'. :)
    Hugs and Love SUex

  5. What lovely costumes and you look lovely too! I've only ever been in one stage production. When I was in high school the juniors (11th grade) always put on a spoof for the seniors (12th grade). Any junior who wanted to could be in it. So I joined the chorus line and had a blast. It was so much fun. I had no line(s) and that's good because I wouldn't be able to remember my name in front of an audience. Yours so hard work but I bet it was fun too.

  6. Sounds like you had a great time. Those photos could be the publicity flyers that go up of the stars of a production in the foyer of a theatre!
    No wonder you feel a bit flat after such a busy sociable time.
