Well done – an­other great panto

Macclesfield Express - - BARLOW’S BRIEF -

MY first stage ap­pear­ance in front of a large au­di­ence was as a young girl singing Dim­ples and Cherry Cheeks.

None of the other boys would do it so I vol­un­teered.

You can imag­ine the amount of Mickey tak­ing I suf­fered. That was on my mind when Mrs B and I went to see Sleep­ing Beauty at MADS theatre last Satur­day. Cen­tre stage in a troupe of en­chant­ing young girls was a smi­ley-faced boy in a se­quin top danc­ing his heart out.

Thank­fully times have changed since I wore a dress.

What hasn’t changed is the qual­ity of pro­duc­tion in Macclesfield’s best- loved lit­tle theatre. It was sim­ply bril­liant.

God knows how they man­aged to pull to­gether all those stunning cos­tumes.

Even my feet were tap­ping along with the dancers and those lit­tle girls just melted my heart.

There were lots of laughs (some at my ex­pense) and a re­ally fun night out.

Well done to ev­ery­one in­volved for an­other great panto.
