Frosted Blog – Show Week

From curtain up to finale bow this show week has been packed full of magical moments.

Of course, there have been some accidental trips on stage, bumps into scenery & the occasional fluffed line… A particular favourite being “Greetis Worthing Pheasants” (Michael Lacey, aka Prince Anders) but this has all added to the fun and silliness of show week and the joy of being part of Team Frosted.

As the audience sat back enjoying the show, they remained unaware of the madness backstage…

Dressing rooms filled with costumes, tiaras, clouds of hairspray, wigs, selfies, sweets, glitter, cake, laughter and a lot of tea…

Stage crew rushing around with scenery, checking cues, preparing props, helping with quick changes, keeping us all smiling with their ‘entertainment’ from the wings… and making lots of dreams come true as Princess Ella’s ice spell fills the stage & snow explodes up into the air & falls over the audience…

Of course, none of this would be possible without the incredible dedication, imagination and hard work of the Frosted Production Team: Luke Clow, Fay Kemal & Mike Benyon (our brilliantly talented Musical Director, who is celebrating his 25th pantomime with SMP!)

Being part of Frosted’s Ensemble has been a truly wonderful experience & I feel incredible lucky to be surrounded by such a talented bunch of ‘Frosticles’. Even in the chilly surroundings of the Intimate Theatre, you can’t help but be feel the warmth of the friendships & passion for performing we all share.

Although the curtain has fallen on the last performance at the Intimate, we are all looking forward to one more afternoon of fun when we perform next weekend at St Elizabeth’s Centre.

I know we will all miss the magic of this panto… But I’m sure somehow, we’ll all learn to ‘Let it Go’…
