What have we been up to recently?

It's been a busy couple of months for the Imagine team since we renamed from WISH Theatre. Here's a quick low down of what we've been up to;

  • We've been up to Halifax to meet all the venue staff and to brief them on the panto. It was a lovely day!
  • Steve, Iain and Louise have been up to Edinburgh to carry out auditions for our Scottish pantos (updates on our panto pages and more news to follow soon...).
  • Iain has been to Inverness for some initial press interviews and photos.
  • We've been working on our star names casting (see our individual panto pages for info).
  • Steve, Neil Bull and Iain have been working on the planning of the panto at Loughborough Town Hall.
  • Sarah has been over to Porthcawl to meet with the team and to get some press shots of Tony Wright.
  • Iain and Steve have been working with the set design and build teams at the Belgrade on Sarah Burton's stunning designs for their new panto set.
  • Jane and David from the Lyceum at Crewe have been over to our offices, working on the panto plans. David and Steve have been working on the technicals of the show.
  • The 2009 Tweenies tour (which we are general managing on behalf of BBC WW) is up and running and we're nearly half way through the 45 venue tour!

And rehearsals start in less than five months time...... oh heck!
