Jimmy Stewart - A Wonderful Life
James Stewart was an Oscar-winning actor and one of the first true Hollywood superstars. He was also a decorated war veteran who was stationed in East Anglia during WW2. I appear, in character as Jimmy himself, to talk about his life, his movies and his wartime experiences. Previous bookings include historical societies, special interest groups, WI meetings and cinema audiences.
20-minute, 40-minute and 1-hour talks available.
One Man Panto - Cinderella
I have appeared in several professional pantomimes over the years and have always been unhappy about the cost of tickets set by the theatres. Even with a discount for ‘group bookings’ it can be an expensive outing to take a collection of children on a coach trip to enjoy the experience of a proper panto. So I have designed and written a one-man show that can be taken into primary schools, giving pupils the chance to have all the fun of a pantomime without having to leave the school premises and without a large expense.
I provide all my own props and costumes and can adapt the show to fit into any available space. I don’t need a stage or any sound/lights technology. I can perform in a normal-sized school hall, and being 6 ft 5 inches tall, it’s likely all the children will be able to see and hear me!
The performance lasts about 45 minutes (allow 1 hour total including getting the children into the room and settled)
