Trouble in Panto Land......Play

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all having a good week and that spring is slowly coming to your area! This week I have been busy getting ready for the pantomime that officially starts tonight. Last night was a full costume rehearsal and tonight we have girl guides and scouts in, wed its a full open night including adults and general public and it all finishes on Saturday. The title of the panto is................'Trouble in panto land', there is a bad guy of course and a good guy, I am the goody............. I was once a frog (the Frog Prince) who gets turned back in to a prince and defeats the evil wizard! ha,ha

I have been handing out posters all week, here it is.........

Today I am making the wanted poster for the evil wizard, I have a photo of Bernard in his costume which I have played around with in Photo-Shop to make into a sepia photo. I am currently staining an A3 piece of paper with Tea, to make look like old paper, I have stuck bernards photo on the front, the poster reads.............


He Whose Name no one can rememebr


You will NOT Die!

These are words taken fom the script, I will post a picture of the finished poster later.

Here is the photo bernard gave me of himself and the one I have turned sepia

Notice his orange face! Yes he is orange he used orange face paint, I think he looks pretty evil what do you think? ha,ha

Since I am the one holding the poster I wanted to make it myself, Its quite good in a way as I get to be a bit crafty for a good reason, and as all you crafters know, its great to find any reason! here is the sepia verson, although I chose to keep his face still quite orange, and added a bit of green to his coller.

I am in a bit of a rush this week, besides the panto and other normal day to day things I am also making another cake! One of the ladies in the panto loved bernards cake and has requested a cake with a Land Rover car on it, so I am having quite a productive week! Slightly crazy, but good.....

I hope to share photos of this panto with you, a lot of photos have been taken so I hope to get my hands on some!

I am also singing in the panto, has anyone heard Kermit the frog sing 'Its not easy being Green?' Well, thats the song I am singing, I was not sure at first but I quite like it now, we changed a few words, as I am no longer green! but it makes a sweet song........

You can hear it here if you like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbCI68eSNsA

Have a great week, see you again soon

Hi Priscilla,spring is coming...I love winter but I'm ready for spring and it is on the way.
I'd loved to see the wanted poster, after it's all put together. Bernard does look very evil, and I think the sepia tone is a good affect.
Best of luck and sing pretty. Hello to mum and dad, hope they are well. Hugs, Linda

I loved that song by Kermit! I remember it so well. I was a huge fan of the muppets as a child.
Please be sure to post lots of pics~I'll be coming back to take a look. I can't wait to see them!
Spring is sort of here today, but I'm sure it will be gone again soon! It's a lovely day out there right now, and well deserved. We've had so many storms. What part of the UK are in you? A dear friend of mine was from Leeds. I haven't been there yet, but someday I will get there. It's a dream of mine. For now, I'll just have to rely on my Coronation Street episodes! lol I've been addicted to that show for years. Good luck!
