Aunty Jen Productions is delighted to have not one, but two wonderful Patrons!
Introducing – Actor and Producer Pablo Raybould
As the nation returns to some sort of normality after this terrible period, many of our theatres still remain ‘dark’ – with some never to reopen at all. However, last year in the middle of the lockdown Aunty Jen Productions became one of the only theatrical companies in the country to perform live when they gave socially distanced, outdoor performances of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Maintaining their momentum and weathering the storm of litigation, regulations and postponement, they also managed to stage their pantomime earlier this year and went straight into rehearsals for ‘Romeo and Juliet’. And now, after months of hard work and determination AJP return to Studley Sports and Social Club grounds to bring you ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
Hopefully the weather and the lifting of restrictions will not only allow the performances to go ahead without a hitch, but will mean that larger numbers will be able to enjoy the opportunity to get out and watch a wonderfully talented and dedicated cast deliver a classic piece of family theatre in the lovely surroundings of our community and enjoy the bar and barbeque during the interval. As Lewis Carroll very wisely wrote ‘Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop’!
Introducing a very special bear – Wing Commander AB, our Children’s Patron.
Hi, my name is AB. In my book you will see that I went through a change, I felt many emotions, I had many questions. But it all worked out ok in the end and I had an adventure. I want to share my story and tell you that it’s ok to feel different emotions. It’s ok not to feel ok sometimes. Just talk. Don’t keep it all in. We have all had a scary few months with this horrible virus. Our lives have changed. We felt feelings we may have never felt before. We had to adapt to this. There have been some very sad things going on, but there have also been some good things. One being how communities have pulled together. That is why I’m so proud to be the Children’s Patron of Aunty Jen Productions. The company has really supported the local community and helped to bring some light to a dark situation. Coming together to help each other is so important. In my Royal Bear Force I have numerous bear friends from charities from all across the nation that come together to spread the word…… talk, talk, talk.
