I Promised Photographs...

of our Pantomime Red Riding Hoodie written by Sarah Harrison.
 
An updated version of the traditional tale, let me introduce Red Riding Hoodie, the young girl who doesn't visit her Grandma as often as she should.
 
 
Not that her Grandma appears unduly bothered!

 
Especially when preparing medallions of hand reared, corn fed, pea hen in a rosemary jus...

 
Of course there was a big bad wolf... (who turned out to be not so bad after all)

 
Who encounters the lusty gamekeeper Jed, also on his way to visit Granny Gruntlepants in her cottage in the woods.

 
Naturally there was a local hostelry where various characters gathered, overseen by the buxom barmaid Jemima Jugs...

 
 
 
Although Jemima only had eyes for Blackfaced Bert, the charcoal burner and Red Riding Hoodie's Dad.

 
You'll be pleased to know that everything worked out for the best, there was a double wedding and everyone lived happily ever after...
 
And although it really has been the most tremendous fun and I have thoroughly enjoyed myself it will be good to get back to some sort of normality this week, although I'm not entirely sure that my life ever feels that normal!
 
p.s.  Have you spotted me yet? (I'll give you a clue... I wasn't playing the wolf)

You were all brilliant!
I have to say though, that whenever you were on stage, I couldn't help thinking of Angie from Eastenders.

Lovely photos. What a hoot the show must have been - I hope your feet survived. Another show next year?

Well...I was hoping to say "it's behind you!" but in your case it is all in front. What a wonderful pantomine - how lucky you are to live somewhere with such a strong community tradition.

Great photos Gina, and that wig makes you look so different. Whoever painted the scenery has done a wonderful job and I'm sure your audiences have thoroughly enjoyed themselves, not to mention the cast!

Frances said...

Gina, thank you so much for these photographs. Your panto looks fabulous! Of course I recognized you, since I had a bit of a prior hint of your role...but may I say that you filled the part beautifully.

I am so impressed that your community gathered together to pull off this event.

Bravo to all! Encore, encore. xo

I spotted you straight away must have been those jugs! And Jill's right there is a touch of the Angie's going on there, I'd try and keep that under control if I were you ;-) It all looks like great fun x

Woohoo!! You look great Ms Jugs! This looks like such fun, and everyone's costumes are great. It even looks like there are a couple of Canadians there in the bar scene with fur hats, plaid shirts & hiking boots ;) (we all dress like that here). So glad you had a great time ... love the comment above that you "filled" your role beautifully! Ha! The sets are amazing, and I recognized the flashy, colourful outfit on granny. Well done Gina! Wendy x

I see you were making the most of your assets in that costume Gina. Don't kid me it was all padding..... Glad it was a success!

Dear Gina,

I am sorry to be a little late to this pantomime part but those pictures are absolutely fabulous! My youngest daughter went through a Little Red Riding Hood obssession last year resulting in months of reading different versions of the same tale, a Little Red Riding Hood dress and cape. These pictures of yours have added a whole new gamut of visions! Thank you. And enjoy your return to normal life :-)

A new career awaits!looks like you all had great fun.

love those cupcakes said...

Great stuff! You look fab and clearly didn't model your character on Annie Walker. Hope the shoes didn't pinch.

Jill said...

You all obviously had a wonderful time, a great set of photos. I could say you've been hiding your jugs under a bushel, or may be hiding your light under a jug, but you continually amaze with you range of talents.
