A visit to where it all began... 

December 2019

This week, I took a visit to where it all began for our new show Cliff and Me! There may have been some slight improvements to the building since the early sixties. I thoroughly enjoyed a tour of the theatre looking at the stalls and behind the scenes. 

Fundraising Launch

November 2019

Embarking on debuting our first show is no mean feat, and so we need your help which is why we have decided to crowd fund our premiere production of Cliff and Me! 


We have been overwhelmed by the positive response we have received so far and are so grateful for your generosity. But we still need your help. If you can spare just £5.00 or even more if you can it would be super helpful. Our aim is to reach £20,000 by the start of January! Ready to launch everything in the new year! If you would like to give you can do so here https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cliff-me-a-brand-new-musical/x/22542396?create_edit=true#/ 


Thank you so much for your support so far.

Get to know Pamela!

September 15, 2019

Pamela's career spans almost fifty years! It began in the '70's as a professional dancer in pantomimes, summer seasons and in West End cabaret. She played the romantic lead in Award winning rock musical 'Future Shock' at the Edinburgh Festival and subsequently at The Roundhouse in Camden. Her skills turned to choreography for several musical shows whilst teaching dance and movement in community settings in London.

Blessed with diminutive height (5ft nothing!) and discovering she could also sing- led to Pamela becoming the nations favourite bear... She appeared as Baby Bear in Goldilocks, with national tours as Boo Boo in Yogi Bear Show and Rupert in Rupert Bear Show. Other furry creatures received rave reviews '' Dick Whittington's Puss says a Thousand Words With One Miaow'' and she wore Elaine Page's wellington boots sharing the same role of Harold Rabbit in Toad of Toad Hall at the Old Vic for several Christmas runs. Pam's 'small creatures specialism' climaxed playing Moth in 'Midsummer Nights Dream' in London's famous Open Air Theatre Regents Park.


The 80's saw Pam growing into an all- round performer touring London parks with lead roles in two seasons with Bubble Theatre, and the Chung Ying theatre company in Hong Kong. She made several appearances in the popular BBC children's series 'Play Away'..

A growing social and political conscience saw Pamela train as a Women's Self Defence tutor and become co founder of a GLC funded multi racial theatre collective 'ReSisters' devising their own original and powerful shows and workshops- touring theatres, women's refuges, community centres, universities and colleges. During this period she also became Resident Professional for Orkney Youth theatre flying in a small aeroplane with the young cast and landing in cow fields to set up in schools and village halls with original devised shows- breaking isolation and affirming the indigenous culture of island people.


The nineties saw Pamela train as a massage therapist and then as a psychotherapist- working with the HIV and Aids community and in South London Natural Health Centre. Her creativity turned towards professional storytelling and hosting the Camden Ceilidh Storytelling Club.


Following her Celtic soul, Pamela moved out of the Big City to West Wales with new husband,(living in a yurt whilst renovating an old stone longhouse) alongside co-founding the Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust. Many nights were spent storytelling under the stars round campfires at courses on scything, haymaking, bee keeping and wildflower meadow management. She also worked for seven years as Resident Storyteller at Castell Hennlys- a glorious Celtic Iron Age Fort in Pembrokeshire creating performances to celebrate the seasonal changes.


She was Artistic Director of ' Heart of the Dragon' over ten years- creating large scale storytelling festivals at the castle in her local market town of Newcastle Emlyn with European exchanges to festivals and theatres in Poland, Portugal and Ireland.

Alongside all the above- Pamela achieved an MA in creative writing to develop her talent for script writing for theatre and film.


And now ? Pamela says this is her 'come back' to the Big City where her love of theatre began all those years ago. Now alongside her dynamic and talented son Glenn she returns to create moving, relevant and beautiful work. Onwards!! 

Announcement - Cliff & Me 

September  14, 2019

We are so proud and excited to announce our debut production which is due to hit London's West End in September 2020 - in celebration for Sir Cliff Richard's 80th Birthday. 


This brand new musical - tells the story of Crystal and her two life long friends as we follow their life stories over sixty years...

Tears and tragedies, love and laughter -and their faithful and sometimes fickle love affair with Cliff Richard and his songs. 


We see Britain's changing cultural, political, royal and religious events -from mini skirts and topless dresses of the swinging sixties to climate crisis and Brexit Britain today.

.

What roles must Crystal and her friends take through all those years? She doesn't want to be just a Cliff fan -she needs to be his equal if the relationship is to work.

And how can Cliff help Crystal whilst he remains the eternal bachelor boy?
