When it was first agreed that I would be directing the 2018 pantomime (Aladdin), I began to make a list of jobs that I needed to do:

  1. Find the perfect script.

  2. Choose some fantastic songs

  3. Agree with wardrobe on the eye-catching costumes

  4. Get my ideas together for the stage crew

  5. Speak to my wonderful choreographer about the dance numbers

Number 1 was easy to cross off.

Having enjoyed performing some on Ben Crocker’s other pantomime scripts, I knew this one would be just as entertaining.

Next stop; song choices.

This was more difficult. However, along with Helena (my choreographer) we decided that you just simply cannot perform Aladdin without some of the famous songs from the much-loved Disney film.

We agreed that ‘Friend like me’ just had to be in there.

We searched and searched for an arrangement that we both loved  before stumbling across the version of the song we finally agreed on. Sure it was close to 8 minutes long, but we love a challenge....

Grease rehearsals are well and truly up and running. The cast are fabulous and are working really hard to put together what looks to be a fabulous show.
Singing and dancing rehearsal last night and Helena (aka Marty and choreographer) really put the cast through their paces. I'm thrilled with how the dance for 'we go together' looks.

The first dance we set was for the opening number Grease and was first rehearsed in my back garden. With such a short rehearsal period we have to be creative with our rehearsal venues.

Next challenge is to set the dance for Greased Lightning with some very interesting props.

If you want to come and see the fantastic musical which is Grease and see our talented cast as you have never seen them before tickets are available from bethelcrowd.ticketsource.co.uk
