We ask Kate some questions.
How Have You Been Involved?
Backstage Crew and Cast Member.
What Roles Have You Played?
I have been set designer, costume designer/maker, prop maker, prompt, stage manager, cast extra, puppeteer.
What Has Been Your Best Moment?
There were lots of best moments, hilarious and touching, but I always felt the biggest relief each time a backdrop was hung…. and it actually fitted. I loved making the underwater creatures for the UV sea scene and ‘swimming’ them about to the Octopussy’s Garden. It has been a brilliant excuse to make weird and wacky stuff, like dancing crabs, jellyfish and ridiculous cakes. It was also fun being a bearded dancing guard with Sue –not even my own children recognised me. I am so much happier hiding backstage though!
Why Did You Join The Hunstanton Panto?
I joined because I was incredulous and incensed that the Princess Theatre had been forced (by Higher Powers –boo hisssss!) to cease putting on their extremely successful, popular professional annual Panto. We were a group of friends united with the one thought that the Show Must Go On!
Your Last Comment?
It’s been great fun working with the John and the crew; what a talented bunch!
In Which Shows Have You Been Involved?
I have been involved in Robin Hood Norfolk Style 2010, The Magical Piuss In Boots 2011 and Pinocchio 2012.
