Mostly Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Apart from our christmas trip to the Watfordia Palace for a dose of panto, we try to do a show each summer, mainly in honour of O's birthday. This year our lovely, talented and glamourous neighbour Kate ( I hate her, no only kidding) is in the Sam Mendes production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Its been shrouded in secrecy esp the Oompa Loompas and Kate has not been able to tell us anythng about it. owever finally we got ourselves organised and went to see it last weds and got a backstage tour too! Hurrah and double hurrah!

At the stage door and with ridiculously large lollipops from Hope and Greenwood opposite! (They must be raking it in!)

Having real theatre make up put on in a real stage dressing room.

Lolli with matching make up!

In the box, oer posh or what?

It was a fab night, hugely entertaining and we had a great time. Kate was really good in her understudy role of Mrs TeeVee which was the first time she had performed it and I am sure she got all the best lines, along with grandma George. Thanks for a memorable evening.
