Firstly, my apologies for the delay in replying and in finding time to watch the DVD you so kindly sent me – this is mainly due to the constant demand for perusal scripts (and show scripts for next season) over the last 3 months, whilst I’ve desperately been trying to keep up with the annual revisions!
I was determined to find time to view it in its entirety – I finally managed to do this over the Bank Holiday weekend and I enjoyed it very much indeed. Every aspect was achieved to an extremely high standard and I thought your cast were particularly strong and enthusiastic this year! It’s obvious how much hard work you had all put into it – congratulations to all involved!
David, your new Dame made the role his own and I thought his tribute to Eric was very well said! And to be MD too – wow, I think that’s the first time I’ve come across that combination of talents! Whilst on the subject, I liked your good variety of music choices, which were also very well performed.
The “we buy any cow.com” sign made me laugh – an idea I’d like to suggest in future versions of the script, if you don’t mind?
Visually, it was outstanding too – the staging, choreography, scenery, lighting and very colourful costumes all looked great – and I was delighted to see the stunning full set of finale costumes, even in this age of austerity!
Thank you for letting me see your production once again – your pantomimes go from strength to strength!
All the very best with plans for Cinderella.
