ANTHONY FIDDLES, AS CANDIDA BURNS!
AN ODD TITLE FOR A SHOW???!!! ABSOLUTELY! Here’s what it’s all about!
Anthony Stonier celebrates 25 years since he foolishly agreed to appear in Durban’s (in fact South Africa’s!) very first ‘Adult’ Pantomime! A Quarter of a Century! The first was Sinderella! In late November 1996 it opened. Scheduled to run a respectable 6 weeks, it then proceeded to sell out! Week after week! Running for almost 9 months in the (sadly) now unused Playhouse Cellar, Durban would not let it close!
Anthony played one of the Ugly Sisters, Candida Burns. He had hoped that this, his first and probably last brief foray into Panto Damehood would be forgotten shortly after the show closed. Alas, it was not to be! He has appeared in all the Adult pantomimes since*.
In this production, Anthony looks back over 25 years, not only in theatre or song, but the fashions, the fads, the foolishness, the fun found in this quarter century!
Candida feels that at Anthony’s age he needs all the help he can get, so, in an act of selfless, silent benevolence, she has agreed to make an appearance, delivering what she termed Red Hot, Racy and Raucous Ribaldry!
Anthony may Fiddle Fabulously, but Candida Sizzles Spectacularly! Together they set the stage, the scenery and your sense on fire!
