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.
It’s just a very quick blog tonight as I’m taking a break from rehearsals to write this post. I’m currently rehearsing my one woman show of the popular musical “My Fair Lady” as I get the show ready for this weekend. I have been booked for two private parties on Saturday and Sunday to perform the show to tie in with Mothers Day.
Learning is definitely down to practice and I’m pleased to say it’s not as difficult second, third or fourth time around to find the words in my head after a break of a couple of years as all the hard work has been done. I last performed this show prior to the pandemic so it’s good to performing “My Fair Lady” again. I think it’s one of my finest achievements as this shows uses all my skills as a musical actress, dancer, writer and designer.
My Fair Lady!
Tonight I need to go over my dance steps and a few of the Higgin’s numbers just to make sure everything will run smoothly when I come to the dress rehearsal on Friday. Tomorrow I hope to get a couple of run throughs, which can be exhausting as there is much to remember and to do physically . The hardest part of this show is going from “The Rain in Spain” into “I Could have Danced all Night”. Neither songs are difficult to sing but when you add in the Rain in Spain dance sequence there is little time for me to catch my breath, so I have to be super fit. I shall keep practicing!
Last week I had the pleasure of performing on Sunday in Harrow for a special 80th Birthday party. It was a lovely event as most of the people at the party were musicians so they really enjoyed my 2 x 45 minutes sets as I performed music from the 1930s, 40s, 50s,
With a Little Bit of Luck!
60s & 70s. You can’t really go wrong with Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Abba and Rock and Roll when it’s a family party and afterwards I really enjoyed listening to the pianists who all performed their favorite party pieces.
I’m going to leave my blog here tonight as I must get on. I shall leave you with my “My Fair Lady” show-reel which gives you an insight into how I stage the show.
Enjoy watching Toodle Pip and Bye for Now!
