When I am not avidly reading the posts from our esteemed Diablog writers I do a bit of pen pushing myself.
Over the the last 10 years or so I have written and directed a few Pantomimes that have included my interpretations of Cinderella, Robin Hood, Alladin, and Treasure Island.
It would appear that I am about to be lumbered again with writing another, and whilst writing this post what is left of my addled mind is trying to come up with a script and music for the next Production due to be performed this December.
I have had enough pressure in my life to have no need for another deadline but once you commit you are committed, and in my case perhaps I should be.Rehearsals are due to start at the end of August with a cast and crew already in place and as of this evening there is NO script.
When I say No script I actually mean that I haven’t started typing anything.
There aint no beginning, middle, let alone some kind of ending.
I need to choose the songs and write the lyrics, and start to consider who is going to play what part and sing what song.
So no pressure then, but perhaps like the rest of you I do tend to respond to a deadline and hopefully words will start to flow.
One positive thing has at least emerged in the last few days and that is at least I think I have a title for the Panto.
This december we WILL, (hopefully) be performing a new version of Snow White And The Seven Dwarves.
Over the coming weeks I will keep Diablog readers up to date on the progress I am making.
The song uploaded below sums up the mood of the moment but then again it was used in a previous production with the words changed to suit the plot.
This is the great original version and take my advice play it on full volume.
