Mediaeval Mayhem and Witches of Oz


This year has already got off to a cracking start with shows at the Mediaeval Banquet at The Abbeygate in Coombe Abbey going down a storm. There is a real team feeling to working at The Abbeygate and the cast are quite simply marvellous to work with.

Speaking of a great team, over the Christmas period I was back at the Blue Orange Theatre in Birmingham, taking on the role of the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz, working with a lovely group of people led by director Tina Hoffman. Christmas time can often provide a child’s first experience of theatre and it was lovely to hear the children reacting to twists and turns of the story, not to mention joining in on Follow The Yellow Brick Road! Such high energy shows can often be hard work, but when you have a great supportive team to work with and the audience reaction to feed off it makes it all worth while.

That’s all for now,

Nicola Foxfield generates an abundance of warmth and wit, and combines these qualities with an admirable willfulness to produce a perfect Rosalind. — The Public Reviews
