Swindon Panto Snow White

Well over 5 different days and nights I had the pleasure of photographing the Swindon Panto Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs at The Wyvern Theatre. It was sooooooo much fun, the cast were just great. The Panto itself I never got tired of watching. I also did a couple of the promo shoots where Adam Woodyatt was at Regents Circus and Snow White was at OMG hairdressers to have her hair done.

I took several hundred images over the 4 days of shooting and this is just a very very small selection.

For me a fun Panto season in Swindon.

Dame Trot meets Swindon Rugby Club

This lunchtime I did a photo shoot at the Wyvern Theatre, Dame Trot and Swindon Rugby Club. Two members of the Rugby Club met Dame Trot and presented her with a copy of their calendar. Dame Trot (David Ashley) was an absolute star and I laughed from start to finish. After their initial ‘shyness’ the rugby players got into the Panto spirit and played along with it all. The calendar was produced by Swindon Rugby Club to raise money for the Baby Unit Charity at GWH.

I have said this a thousand times but if you have not seen Jack and the Beanstalk at the Wyvern yet you must go. It is getting rave reviews, that aside it is just such a laugh.

Keith Chegwin meets 2 Jacks and 2 Dames in Swindon

This lunchtime I did a photo shoot at the Swindon Wyvern Theatre with Keith Chegwin who is playing Silly Billy, Jack and Dame Trot from the Swindon cast and Jack and Dame Trot from the Stroud company who are also performing Jack and the Beanstalk. It was so much fun and I really enjoyed it. The cast from Swindon made me feel really at home and as though they had known me all their life, it was a real pleasure to work with them.

I love my job.

Keith Chegwin and Jack and the Beanstalk Down on the Fram

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking part in the photo call for the Jack and the Beanstalk Panto which is being performed at the Wyvern Theatre at Christmas. It took place at Roves farm on a very hot day. The cast, Keith Chegwin, Jennifer Greenwood, Samuel Parker and David Ashley seemed to really enjoy themselves feeding and stroking the animals. But I have to say the star of the day was Annie, the 20 year old cow that was used as a prop. Was a lovely gentle creature and she did everything we asked. Including posing with the panto cow which was just soooo funny, the guys in the suit were quite nervous at first, as was everybody really but she won everybody over and after a while everybody wanted to stroke, pat or scratch her. A star in the making I think.

I took 550 images so this really is just a random selection of the shoot.
