Behind The Magic Mirror – Panto Rehearsals Week 1…

Press & PR Assistant, Ben Wooldridge (@benwooldridge) writes…

Rehearsals for Britain’s biggest Pantomime are now in full swing…oh yes they are…and last week myself and Mandy from the Press Office headed down to the rehearsal space in London with a coach full of media where our star-studded cast are hard at work putting the show together.

The whole of the cast and creative team will be down in the big smoke rehearsing before they join us up in Birmingham next week as the magnificent set is constructed on stage and the production moves in to technical rehearsal.

Upon arrival we were treated to a few exclusive scenes from the performance including a show-stopping production number from John Partridge, a dramatic scene from Stephanie Beacham and Gok Wan and a hilarious preview from Danielle Hope and Paul Zerdin.

Following on, the group then split for individual interviews with members of the media – look out for coming reports in the next few days on the TV, Radio, Online and newspapers.

One of the attending reporters, Adam Seager, also took a great backstage video – take a look here. 

Heather Kincaid, one of Birmingham Hippodrome’s First Night Bloggers also came along with us and interviewed the stars of the show – click here to read her report on the day.

As an extra little treat for you we have a selection of snaps taken from our day below – don’t forget to click here for more info on the show and to book your tickets.
