FAVOURITE SONG FROM THE SHOW AND WHY? Tell her! It’s such an exciting song and such a pinnacle moment in the show where the plot begins to develop! And I throughly enjoy miming the words with deep and meaningful expressions!
PAST SHOWS INCLUDE: Annie, Wizard of Oz, Many Karen Clarke Christmas shows! Pasha’s Strictly come dancing tour, dance show in Germany, dancing in Disney Paris twice (that was my favourite!)
FAVOURITE/MOST MEMORABLE/EMBARRASSING MOMENT ON STAGE: Whilst preparing for a Dick Witington the Pantomime, our main character King Rat pulled out giving 24 hours notice before the show... I was then volunteered for the role and had 24 hours to learn the lines and everything else to go with it! The first act went swimmingly! However in the second act I accidentally said ‘Sh*t’ instead of Ship! The audience went silent! So I proceeded to correct my error and said ‘I meant ship!’ #awkward although I did have the audience in stitches when I corrected myself, after a long dramatic pause!
