Michael Wooldridge sends Christmas and New Year wishes to everyone from pantoland! He is currently working as Musical Director for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the lovely Blackfriars Theatre in Boston, Lincs. He tells us the show has been going wonderfully well with 'House Full' notices up at many performances. The show runs twice daily until 4th January so ring now for ticket availability on 01206 363 108.
Michael is really enjoying the run, as the cast are hugely talented and very friendly. He is especially chuffed to be working with Norman Barrett (pictured above), well known to many from his appearances on TV as ringmaster for the famous Blackpool Tower Circus and the International Circus Championships for many years. At the panto, Norman very much steals the show with his troupe of performing budgies, with whom Michael shares a dressing room! Apparently they just love to do their tricks for the audience, though at one performance one did decide it would be more interesting to fly down to see what was going on with Michael in the orchestra pit!
We would just like to offer Michael the following advice "keep looking over your shoulder mate or you just in case 'He's Behind You".....'
"Oh no he's not......Oh yes he is......."
