TRIMMING MY BUSH!

I’m TRIMMING MY BUSH my dear ladies and occasional gentleman. 


This will grow by magic to cover SLEEPING BEAUTY in our village pantomime, first night tonight.

I shall be donning my TUTU, WINGS, WAND & FISHNETS (Ronald is rather excited) as FAIRY FLORA.


OH NO YOU WON’T! OH YES I WILL!

Yours Pantoly

DUSTING OFF THE SUSPENDERS!

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, I am DUSTING OFF THE SUSPENDERS, airing the SPARKLY SHORTS, tightening the GREEN SATIN BRASSIERE, sewing up the toe-hole in the BLACK FISHNET STOCKINGS and polishing my BLACK BIKER BOOTS.

Yes I am off to THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW tomorrow night and DRESSING UP is obligatory.

I just hope that when I arrive at our local THEATRE’S LIVE SCREENING, I am not the only one looking like a third rate member of the cast!

Yours Time-Warpily

FALLING OVER JUICE, DAD’S FROCK & MY HOOCHIE-COOCHIE

FALLING OVER JUICE, DAD’S FROCK & MY HOOCHIE -COOCHIE
My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, I apologise for my absence, I only hope as the saying goes ‘ABSENCE MAKES THE HEART GROW FONDER”.

In my defense I have been up to my HOOCHIE-COOCHIE in the pantomime. “OH NO YOU HAVEN’T!” “OH YES I HAVE!”.

We start at 6.00 putting on the MAKE-UP and there is nearly always a RUGBY SCRUM between the men as to who gets in the MAKE-UP CHAIR first. What is it with men and make-up, it is always the same whatever production I am in or DIRECTING.

TO be perfectly honest we all love the DRESSING-UP, the make-up and becoming a different character but the men just cannot wait to put a FROCK AND MAKE-UP on and heaven forbid you try and put a different eyeshadow colour on them!

It makes for some interesting conversations such as “Chloe if you bring your DAD’S FROCK up I can do the alterations”. “Stuart, you have BLUE EYESHADOW or PINK ?”

They are an amazing bunch of people and their AGES RANGE FROM 4 YEARS OLD TO 90 YEARS OLD. It is a joy to watch them come together over the 7 weeks of rehearsals bonding into this enthusiastic cast. They support and help each other and we all have so much FUN which is a commodity worth its wait in gold. A great VILLAGE EVENT and we have our last performance this evening.

There is a quantity of ‘FALLING OVER” juice consumed throughout the week’s run (only by the adults of course) so next week I shall be ABSTAINING. This may make me a little GRUMPY so I apologise in advance if I am a little ACERBIC.

Yours Applausingly

Celia
