    Default behind the screens

    while the panto was play to the audience, what was going on behind the scenes was almost as good,
    Pauline b was the costume maker, the costumes were scanty to say the least as most of the budget had been spent on shoes,

    HLB and TCM, having big feet, pauline had had great trouble getting stilettos in their size, and Pauline insisted that they all practise walking in their costume shoes before going on stage.

    cutter was involved a lot due to being the only person with a sewing kit, and supplier of plasters, to repairer the damage done from the many falls involved,
    Its amazing how much damage you can come to falling from 6'in stilettos.

    Lake sailore was photographing everthing muttering about Oscars or comedies of errors films,

    Boatone was adjusting the lights to make the costume seem just right, but with Jemmie helping this was not going as planned,

    Could someone tell Shy_Talk and Brett to stop snogging behind the scenery, and that we can see them. The photocopier is in the office, and the office door locks

    Twister_Ken meanwhile was trying hard to guide the audience to their seats, but kept getting confused and returning to the foyer after getting half way down the aisle.....

    ....although, in fairness, some of the audience members refused to accompany him because he wasn't equipped with radar.

    Ah! Here's the interval usherettes with some warming tomato soup. "Look out! You'll spill it......... Whoops, too late"!

    During the commotion caused by the 'soon to be infamous' tomato soup incident.... Doc was struggling......

    He'd had a quick try of the curtains, and darn it... they'd ripped from one corner to the other......

    I have decided to appoint myself Health and Safety Officer for the whole panto. This will involve lots of safety improvements and generally ruining a good idea and making it unworkable.

    In the first instance, lights. You can have torches, fixed lights with that nasty mains electricity will be banned. The highest angle for the lights will be as high as mr moose can hold them in the air, ladders are dangerous.

    We know you have been looking at gantries, but it will be February before we can come back to you with SWL approval, so you might as well forget that idea now.

    Yours

    Eboneezas shooze.

    Dear Mr Shipswoofy Esq.

    Reference your correspondence of 7th December 2005.

    Under the 'Freedom of Information Act 2003', can I please ask you to confirm that you have established a suitable testing regime for the safe use of main electricity in the pantomime environment, and that you are suitably qualified to dispense such advice. I request a copy of your full training records dating back to 1975, and request that you provide them to me in 21 days as allowed under this legislation.

    I will take your failure to reply as accepance that you have provided poor advice, and will suggest to the merry band of forumites that their panto, carefully designed to help the poor children of this wretched country to at least enjoy one small delight during this festive season

    Yours Sincerely,

    Peter Pan
