Eshta does Panto - oh yes we do

Here's Di, myself and Phil doing panto at Wootton in February. The Wootton Players kindly asked us to appear in their panto Sinbad, what a blast! Ok we only had a 2 minute slot on each evening but it was worth it. Rehearsals, meeting the cast, the crew, waiting behind the scenes, the fabulous props (actual flying carpet), Kate the Director and many others - wouldn't have missed it for anything. Thank you Wootton Players for a wonderful experience!

Who's your new friend Di? Actually this is Jon, or better known as Mrs Sinbad, the pantomime dame. One of the lovely actors from the Wootton Players.

Mmm blury picture, was it the wine or are you moving Rita? This is behind the scenes during a performance of Sinbad the Sailor.


This is some of the gang when we danced at Didcot Civil Hall last year. One of us lost a foot bracelet, two clashed veils and dropped them, someone went the wrong way and left one dancer on her own and two also danced the wrong steps in the wrong section of the music. Apart from that, everything was perfect!!
