Hello! My name’s Sophie and I play Princess Hannah in our upcoming pantomime Frosted. To sum Hannah up, she’s incredibly excited, all of the time, about absolutely everything. So not too dissimilar from myself really!
Once upon a time I was an SMP baby, so having grown up watching my parents in their shows, it was only natural that I too joined when I was 15. And now here we are!
But enough about me, you want to hear about how rehearsals are going, oh yes you do(!)
Well I’m extremely excited to tell you that we had our first costume run on Sunday. It’s always so wonderful seeing everyone all dressed up and sparkly, it really brings the show together. It was also the first time that we completely ran the show, start to finish. Of course, it wasn’t the smoothest ride but hey, perfection takes time, people! We’re cooking you a masterpiece here! We also had some photos taken for Front of House, and filmed a rather hilarious little introduction video which you may have seen doing the rounds by now, if not, definitely give it a watch!
Monday saw us at our lovely colourful rehearsal hut/nursery, running the show again, out of costumes this time. Scripts were put down, lines were remembered and giggles were most definitely had all round! Honestly, there are some cracking jokes in this pantomime, courtesy of our incredible scriptwriter Warren McWilliams, you won’t want to miss them.
Our Wednesday rehearsal started slightly different than usual, singing Christmas Carols in Southgate for Haven House Children’s charity. It definitely put us in a very christmassy mood before we got down to business! We spent our scheduled rehearsal time going over some dance routines and perfecting our harmonies.
Moving on, it would be silly not to mention that we had our fantastic annual SMP Christmas meal on Saturday, full of festive joy, yummy food, secret Santa presents and of course wonderful friends.
Our Frosted week finished with our 2nd dress rehearsal on Sunday, this time with a few added costumes, much slicker dance routines and tighter harmonies thanks to Wednesday’s recaps! What an incredible team we have
So that’s it for this week! And what a busy week it’s been!
Princess Hannah, signing off!
