Yes really pleased that my very good friend and producer of the Lighthouse theatre Robin Cave has asked me back for the third year running.
Starting December 5th 2014 till January 4th 2015
Robin Hood and his merry men is the panto, and I’ll be playing not one but two parts (Same money) Friar Tuck and Gladys Windybottom.
Just had an offer to direct and perform by another producer. Bloody hell almost packing it in to retire and the diary is so full I don’t have time to retire.
What a great run down in Poole. Fantastic reviews, fantastic cast.
Fingers crossed we all do it again next year.
Panto for 2013/14 has been signed. Exciting times. Writing, directing and playing Dame Trott at The Lighthouse Poole.
Starts on Dec 5th and runs to Jan 5th
Hope to see you there
Aladdin written and directed by Tom Bright
There were genuinely hilarious scenes where the crowd were screaming with laughter and the music and special effects made for a fantastic show.
Ray Quinn’s natural charm and charisma should prove to be a real coup for the venue if this showing was anything to go by.
His beaming smile was infectious throughout and when props misbehaved or people shouted things out the former X Factor and Dancing on Ice star showed he could ad lib to great comedy effect.
His duet with his princess for the song A Whole New World, from the Aladdin film, was made all the more entertaining with the couple riding on a magic carpet through the stars.
Former Crackerjack star Don Maclean got all the big laughs as Widow Twankey but Tim Flavin was also a classy bad guy as Abanazar.
The costumes and spot-on choreography with some great dancing scenes broke up the drama and added to the sense of occasion .
And the night was topped off when a member of the audience took to the stage to propose…and his girlfriend said yes.
