A New Commission – The Winter Gardens Film Festival

I am REALLY excited to have been commissioned by the WGFF for 2020 and will be creating a (hopefully) hilarious and exciting series of performances to accompany the ‘Sing a-long’ screening of ‘Calamity Jane’. I am going to create a supreme pre-screening event in two sections.

For the first I’ll be working with a group of local young actors, prospective graduates and volunteers to create a veritable smorgasbord of eye-catching and charismatic Western themed characters and interactive activities to keep our audiences amused and entertained before the film starts.

For the second I’ll be throwing Drag and Music Hall Culture, Musical Theatre, Cabaret and themes of ‘Calamity Jane’ in to a blender to create ‘Miss Molly Mackenzie’s Showtime Saloon Sing-a-long’ – a bite size spectacular that gets the audience warmed up and ready to sing along with the screening of the film. You can expect stockings, suspenders, song and dance and maybe even a comedy prop, or two! (whip crack away, which crack away, whip crack away!)

The event is scheduled to take place in winter 2020. You can check out all things WGFF right here!
