Everyone at MAD looks forward to panto, and we were not about to let a global pandemic get in the way. As they say, the show must go on!

This is our first online panto, so please when you watch, understand that we are still learning how to navigate the online stage! We hope you enjoy watching even half as much as we have enjoyed making this.

In the first few weeks of lockdown back in April, MAD decided to try our hand at a radio play. Through the next few months some members met virtually, twice a week, rehearsing this production. The experience not only allowed us a creative outlet, a social connection with a familiar process and ‘something to do’ but it also was a huge learning process for everyone.

The cast not only produced all the character voices, they also created as many of the sound effects as possible using anything they could find! All the ‘music’ was also created by members. We also learned the best ways of gathering individual ‘voices’, and were able to involve those not able to join the virtual rehearsals. Each voice or effect was collected individually and edited together - another skill we had to learn!

So please when you listen, understand that the creation of this production is our first attempt at this type of production. We are still editing ‘Fit the Second’ which should be completed by the end of October. We hope you enjoy listening even half as much as we have enjoyed making this.

This has been a ‘not-for-profit’ production.

We are hoping to stage the production at a future date and look forward to welcoming you back at this time.

We will provide an update on the situation whenever we are in a position to do so.
