It’s week 10 in panto land, and things are starting to look a bit magical! I’m Hayley, part of the dancer chorus crew, and loving being in Cinderella, back with the SMP Fam. I was lucky enough to be in our send off panto at The Intimate, a theatre that my family has trodden the boards of for many years. This year is extra special for me because not only are we in a brand new venue, The Chingford Assembly Hall, but I also get to be in my first ever show with three generations of my family, with my fabulous Mum, Debbie Morton, and my cousin’s little Lacey. It is so fantastic having children in our cast this year, they are just amazing, and really adding a new dimension to the show.
We started off the week with my favourite style of dance, tap! We were all in our absolute element and really enjoying practicing and teaching each other our favourite steps. Miss Fay was loving having a whole crew of tappers and was really putting us to work with some classic Fred Astaire moves, watch this space!
Wednesday was super exciting, we had everyone called for our first full run! We even had a little audience with one of our favs, Carla, who is usually in panto with us, but this time she has handed over the dancing shoes to her son Kieran.
It was great to see a real show taking shape and we all had the opportunity to see what each other had been up to over the past 10 weeks when we hadn’t been called. I was especially enjoying the work of the hardup gang and there are a few sneaky clips for you to enjoy!
The Halloween witches are back in their hidey-holes, it is now November full of fireworks and we are starting to think a bit about Christmas. Don’t forget to put a Cinderella ticket on your wish list, and prepare for your pre-Christmas festive spirits to be sparkled, with our December show!
