Simon's in Panto

Well in a turn up for the books I will be in Panto this year, I am in Aladdin in January 2008! Yes I know its miles away but I am very excited with my efforts! (Simon has a Cheshire grin). I will be playing Hi Pong (some might say that’s apt but they are rude) and being understudy for a few roles.

I am amazed with the amount of advance that plans for Panto start. We have the first read through on the 20th of July. The there is a break (not that we will have done much) until end of September when the rehearsals start in earnest, costumes are fitted (I need to loose some weight) and songs and dance routines are learnt as well as some lines.

It should be a good event and it’s the first LBGT Panto in London so please, please come the money is going to charity as soon as overheads are paid (we aren’t getting paid we’re doing it for the love of Panto) and there will be lots of fun to be had. Apparently it’s selling really well but you can still get tickets at I will look forward to seeing you all there!
