NODA The Summer School Week!


“Here We Are Again!”- a fabulous week spent at NODA “Boot Camp” for Panto enthusiasts!


Thanks to Dame Ian Good for suggesting I should become tutor for Pantomime at this annual Summer School, held in the very plush Scarman Centre at Warwick University.


some of the tutors!

Eighteen intrepid Panto scholars spent a week with me hearing endless tales of pantomime mishaps and joys, and spending mornings with lectures on The History of Pantomime, the Drury Lane years, Principal Boys, Panto Dame Day- with make-up and costume, and many afternoons working through gags and routines, leading up to a glorious presentation on Friday at Warwick Arts Centre- a 17 minute potted panto! Oh Yes We Did!

A great bunch of fellow tutors, administrated beautifully by Catriona (Tri) Cumming, and a truly delightful bunch of people on the Pantomime course- their enthusiasm and joy of all things panto really made it a true pleasure.
