Mike Clarke shows off SMTC’s Best Panto Award

As many of our readers may already know, Rachel and I have been members of Salford Musical Theatre Company (SMTC) for more than 10 years and have been fortunate to have appeared in numerous award winning musical productions.

In 2008 when the theatre company faced massive debts, it was decided to stage a pantomime for the first time in the societies 60 year history. From humble beginnings the annual panto has entertained audiences of all ages and our last production in December 2012 “Puss In Boots” was adjudicated by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) for the first time ever.

Puss in Boots was judged to be the District 1 “Best Panto” and will now go on to represent the North West at the national finals to be held in Blackpool later this year.

As the producer, director and script writer of this brilliant SMTC production I am incredibly proud of the achievement of a talented bunch of people who all worked incredibly hard to produce an amazingly entertaining show that raised funds for the society and ensured that our next productions can afford to be staged. In particular I would like to publicly thank my wife Rachel for her outstanding performance as the title character, showing amazing talent and superlative confidence which brought praise from the adjudicator and audiences alike.
