Glitter, frills and pink wigs… Just another normal Norfolk Chambers of Commerce networking event!
Oh, yes we did!
We had our third backstage tour with our Theatre Royal friend Jason Raper this morning, and it was magically fantastic!
From the sombre and minimalist set of Girl on the Train, to the quirky and fantabulous fun of Matilda, today we had the festive craziness of this year’s Pantomime Cinderella.
An hour with Jason just doesn’t seem long enough. His knowledge of the theatre’s history and his entertaining stories of life behind the scenes are enthralling. It’s impossible not to smile at the scenery, outfits and the glitter covered set!
The magic certainly happens on stage, but behind the scenes is a team that ensures the show runs with clockwork precision. Jason introduced us to the intricate mechanics above and below us, and at every point had an interesting story to tell.
We then spent an hour enjoying a delicious breakfast of bacon rolls, pastries and fresh fruit and networked in the comfortable and elegant Prelude Restaurant.
A perfect way to end the first working week of 2020 – thank you so much to everyone who attended!
