NEWS PAGE & BLOG


Hello one and all and welcome to my news page. Here you can see me as my two alter egos the ever efficient secretary Prudie Jones, Evette the Spivette and plain old little me as you catch up with all that is current in my world. Regrettably unlike Prudie my spelling is quite frightful at the best of times due to my dyslexia so I shall apologise now for anything which might be shamefully mis-spelt. In the mean time I hope you find this page fun, entertaining and informative and become a regular visitor to my site.

Kind Regards

A Voice in a Million


Hooray for the WI and Shakespeare!

I’m just back from doing a 1950s Jubilee show in Datchet for the Monday Club and guess who was doing the refreshments – Datchet WI. Wonderful! I love the WI in fact that’s how I started out as a professional entertainer entertaining the WI not as a singer but doing stand-up in the Joyce Grenfell vein so I owe a lot to the WI. A big thank-you for the fantastic cake and Trifle that was just what I needed after all that singing!
I really enjoyed todays show as I was able to include all my favourtes and I even sang some Opera today which went down really well. Ofcourse my favourite song is “So in Love” from Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate. Between you and me I think I would make a good Kathrine (I’m kind of in the mood at the mo to sing “I hate Men”) but when it comes to Shakespeare’s characters I think I’m most like a Beatrice from Much ado About Nothing. I would so love to have the chance to play her again but sadly I never get that opertunity as I’m always working singing for a living so to do a play is quite impossible. Mind you that doesn’t stop me from quoting from the play or at least re-wording it slightly in my everyday life only it seems to go over the heads of every-one- particuly men! Is it me or are Men stupid? Yorn Yorn!
Speaking of which I think it’s time for bed and I will re-read my play and the wonderful langue which is Shakespeare in particular the Beatrice and Benedick scenes!
Toodle Pip and Up the Wooden Hill to Bedfordshire I go! ;->
