Behind the Curtain: A Glimpse into Mrs. Beauregarde's World

Hello, theatre enthusiasts! Lisa here, and I'm thrilled to take you behind the scenes of our enchanting journey as we bring "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" to life on stage. As I step into the shoes of Mrs. Beauregarde, join me on this magical adventure filled with set development, challenges, favourite scenes, and a sprinkle of fun facts.

Let's dive right in! One of the most exhilarating parts of this production is witnessing the evolution of the set and props. Although we've only glimpsed a few sneak peeks so far, the promise of the magical world of Willy Wonka's factory coming to life fills me with boundless excitement. From towering chocolate waterfalls to whimsical candy contraptions, every detail is meticulously crafted to captivate audiences and transport them into a world of pure imagination.

Now, let's address the elephant in the room – or should I say, the challenge I've faced in my role. As an adult performer surrounded by a vibrant ensemble of young talents, my mission to look cool next to them has proven to be quite the task! Despite my best efforts, I must confess that I may have fallen short of achieving that elusive cool factor. But hey, who needs cool when you have the magic of theatre, right?

Amidst the whirlwind of rehearsals and costume fittings, one scene stands out as my personal favourite – the mesmerising reveal of the factory, where the golden ticket winners behold the wonders before them for the first time. It's a moment of pure wonder and awe, both for the characters on stage and the audience in the theatre, and I can't wait to witness its magic unfold night after night.

Having been part of CAODS' production of "Elf" last year, I can attest to the invaluable sense of camaraderie and joy that comes with being part of a local theatre group. It's not just about putting on a show; it's about forging friendships, building confidence, and creating memories that last a lifetime. Plus, where else can you find a community as diverse and welcoming as ours?

Now, for a fun fact about yours truly – I'm a proud animal lover with a menagerie of pets to prove it! From my two adorable sausage dogs to a charming flock of ducks and chickens, my home is a veritable haven for all creatures great and small. Just don't let the Gloops catch wind of my furry and feathered friends – they might just get jealous!

In conclusion, dear readers, I invite you to join us on this whimsical journey into the heart of Willy Wonka's world. As we bring "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" to life on stage, we promise an experience filled with laughter, wonder, and plenty of sweet surprises. So, grab your golden ticket and prepare to be transported to a world where dreams come true, and imagination knows no bounds!


Warm regards,


Lisa (aka Mrs. Beauregarde)
