Where has the time gone? It’s hard to believe that – with last night’s performance – we have been open for 3 weeks. Eeek! So by the end of Wednesday’s shows next week we’ll be half way through our time here, following Dick & Tommy on their adventures to London and beyond.

We’ve been very lucky with our reviews (is lucky the right word?…) which have been really great. The links to some are just below here, but this is what some of them have been saying:
“The Theatre Royal has put on some fantastic pantomimes over the years and this year’s production … delivered on all fronts.”
“Dick Whittington proves to be a deliciously devilish start to the festive season…”
“With an opera singing diva dame and tap dancing rats spoofing The Sound of Music what’s not to like?”

“… this charming rib-tickler of a production…”

“The lasting feeling is one of great warmth and joy, largely down to the uniformly excellent cast…”

“…. the wonderfully warm, intimate and magical pantomime that is Dick Whittington.”

All in all the reviewers have been very kind to us, and I just hope it reflects the amount of work the creative team, the cast and everyone at the theatre has put into the production. The audience response seems to support that – so we must be doing something right!
The Creative Young Associates at the theatre have been busy too, and created a short “trailer” for the show which you can see on YouTube here
I can’t pretend that it’s all breezy, easy and that I’m not knackered at the end of each day (never mind each week!) but at least it’s a good, hearty, well-earned knackered. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
We’re performing at the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds until the 15th January 2012. Still time to treat yourself and come and see us 🙂
