Well the recording of Noel's Christmas Presents has taken place. It all seemed to go very well, even though it took over an hour longer to record than scheduled due to retakes. It was a great experience and I enjoyed every minute, but I'm not sure I'm interested in working in the TV industry. Not that I ever had any intentions of doing so, but nothing about the week has made me feel inclined to pursue it as a career path. I'd never say never, but I think theatre is where my heart is for now at least.
The show is already a fading memory, the very next day I was straight on to the next job. It's now time for Pantomime, this year I have the delights of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. We're currently in technical rehearsals and opening night is Friday evening. So lots to cram in to get the show fit for the paying public.
Still got the transmission of the show to look forward to though. If you are interested in seeing my beautiful theatre in all its glory here are all the confirmed transmission dates for the show. First broadcast is on the 21st December on Sky One at 6pm, it is then repeated as follows:
Mon 22/12 11.00 Sky1
Mon 22/12 20.00 Sky2
Wed 24/12 18.00 Sky1
Thurs 25/12 10.00 Sky1
Thurs 25/12 16.00 Sky1
Thurs 25/12 21.00 Sky2
Fri 26/12 15.00 Sky1
Sat 27/12 20.00 Sky1
Sun 28/12 09.00 Sky2
Mon 29/12 08.30 Sky Real Lives
Mon 29/12 09.30 Sky Real Lives +1
Mon 29/12 11.00 Sky1
Mon 29/12 20.30 Sky Real Lives
Mon 29/12 21.30 Sky Real Lives +1
They certainly like to get their money's worth out of a show like this! There are no excuses for missing it, unless you don't have Sky I guess.
For now, "hi ho, hi ho, it's off to bed I go"..... more rehearsals tomorrow!
