‘Hoddit’ from this years panto talks…

Hoddit here, one of Prince Rupert Charming Darling’s henchmen.

Well, what can I say, we have been rehearsing now for a couple of months and everything is really coming together. Karen (or the slave driver as we like to call her), has been putting us through our choreography and we are shedding the pounds faster than the contestants on America’s Biggest Loser! This is not good because myself and fellow henchman Doddit, need to gain about 10 stone in one and a half months. You see, as a henchman, you can’t get away with being 5 stone and, being the method actors that we are, no fat suits for us oh no! – just loads of pies. In fact, when I’m done here, I’m straight off to Greigs for some butties and cream cakes. You have to suffer for your art you know!

So yeah, it’s really great fun working with my lovely friends the nuns, the De-wharffs, those strange walking talking foxes and the poor souls trapped inside a mirror (who are actually really friendly) and we are raring to go!

If you’ve seen this blog, maybe you can come to the show with a sign, that says “HODDIT! I READ YOUR BLOG!” so I can count how many people have read it (although I may be a bit busy at the time!). Anyway. Come to the Pantosphere. You know you want to!

Hoddit out!
