Oh No she isn't! - Once again the Covid situation caused probems as the increasing cases after Christmas 2021 causes the Panto to be postponed until end of March 2022, Unfortunately we have a holiday planned for then, so Glynis has to give up the part. The Covid is getting somewhat annoying now!
Well Glynis rehearsed for the performance of Crown Matrimonial and it was performed at Palace Avenue Theatre on Wednesday 24th November as planned. Unfortunately during the second performance on Thursday 25th the lady playing one of the main parts collapsed on Stage and the performance had to be stopped and an ambulance called. The rest of the run could not continue without her and the rest of the run was cancelled. The lady taken ill is now recovering but has a severe virus infection which is now being treated. In the meantime Glynis has now started rehearsing for her next production, with the Marldon Pantomime Players, as she has the part of the Queen in Sleeping Beauty which will be staged at Marldon village Hall at the end of January 2022.
