Day 8 of Rehearsals...

Matthew Watkin (Silly Billy)

Today we are concentrating on the dance moves again and I am a bit panicky because there are so many to learn in such a short time. We are also going to go through the love song again, and it's really important to get this right and also to get the choreography going along with it. It all seems to be so much to learn at the moment.

So it's even more important to have a good team around you who will carry you through the times when you think you can't get there. Everyone here really works together, so I feel so much more confident because we all tell each other that "we can do it!" (and then we feel like shouting "oh, yes we can...!").

That's part of the whole experience of 'doing pantomime' - the friendships that are made by the cast and company, and working with the staff at the Theatre, who also get caught up in the whole excitement of it. There's always someone around to put a smile on your face, and, after all, that's what it's all about!

See you later,

Julie
