And… 5,6,7,8… Well, hello there! I am Wendy Cooper, Choreographer for SMP’s Snow White.
This is the first show I’ve choreographed for SMP & I am having the BEST time! Whilst it feels really strange being stood at the front of the room, the cast have been so welcoming and encouraging! This week has been jam packed full of new songs, scenes and spooktacular fun!! We stared the week with an evening of dance and singing recaps. The cast did brilliantly and by the end of the evening everything was looking and sounding great! Especially the Act 1 finale… ahhh this is going to be THE Greatest Show…!
The whole cast have worked so so hard and seeing our ideas and choreography come to life, has been magical! Of course, I must say a big thank you to the wonderful Hayley Buckmaster for her support as Assistant Choreographer and a big BIG thank you to all the cast for their hard work so far. Keep it going guys & gals!
It has been an absolute joy working being part of the production team for Snow White. Our fabulous MD Kate Sanders has worked her magic with the cast and the songs are sounding absolutely stunning, with some great arrangements from Mr Mike Benyon as Assistant M.D. I just need to make sure the dancing allows them to sing it all! Hehe!
The scenes are really taking shape too. Our super Director, Chris O’Shea is really bringing this show to life and I am loving seeing how the characters are developing. Of course, we are hugely lucky to have another brilliant script from Warren McWilliams again, and I have to say, this is my favourite!!!
This panto is packed full of brilliant characters and comedy, one not to be missed! And, as mentioned last week, sadly this could be the last show to be held at the Intimate Theatre before it is demolished. I’ll keep playing the lottery in the hope I win, can buy the theatre and refurbish it to its former glory… and in the meantime just hope that the petitioning from local groups helps save or perhaps influence a little re-think on the theatre’s future.

On a happier note, this weekend also saw our awesome SMP family celebrating all things spooky with a Halloween movie night including fancy dress, treats and lots of fun! And, the ghoulish fun continued into Sunday too, where we were invited by Friends of Bury Lodge Park to support their Halloween Spooktakular afternoon of arts, and crafts, with story time and songs from SMP! A brilliant afternoon and a great opportunity to hand out some flyers to the families at the event too! Anyway, enough chatting… I must get back to choreographing the next number!! Ready… and 5,6,7,8… It’s not too early to get booking your tickets!!! Don’t make me send the wicked Queen after you…!!!
