January 10th, 2018

bbcnews18aA star of 1980s sitcom Hi-de-Hi! says it is “comforting” to know a new hotel is set to be built where she and fellow cast members stayed while filming.

The Cliff Hotel in Dovercourt, Essex, was home to the likes of Su Pollard, Ruth Madoc and Paul Shane during the filming of 58 episodes from 1980-88.

It is being knocked down and rebuilt as a 61-bedroom hotel and apartments.

Pollard, who played chalet maid Peggy Ollerenshaw, said she was glad a hotel would remain on the old site.

Bucks Free Press: Snow White Review

December 23rd, 2017

snowwhite17kkAnother fantastic review for Snow White, this one from Bucks Free Press.

PANTO REVIEW: Snow White at the Aylesbury Waterside proved a massive hit

If a panto’s success is judged by the decibels of the squeals of delight emanating from the children in the audience then Snow White at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre is a massive hit.

The cast member most often initiating the audience participation was Muddles, played quite honestly to panto perfection by Andy Collins, a veteran TV warm-up man who is best known locally as a presenter on BBC Three Counties Radio. His twinkly-eyed, comedic, cheerful chappy approach to the role endeared him to kids and adults alike. The grown-ups even forgave him for drenching them with water pistols in the hilarious 12 Days of Christmas routine.

… There are several statements which could be used to describe Hi-de-Hi’s Su Pollard. Mad as a bag of frogs, slightly bonkers, charmingly eccentric and add to the list perfect for panto! She seemed to revel in being booed and was convincingly menacing as the wicked queen, but she did it in such a way that I couldn’t help but like her (this was a long way from the glam wicked queen). When she pitched up on stage in a leopard skin print shorts and skimpy top with her skinny legs, big glasses and bewildered look on her face to proposition the Prince (the charming Jon Moses) I almost wanted her to succeed!

Snow White 2017: Receiving Great Reviews!

December 19th, 2017

snowwhite17sSnow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Aylesbury Waterside is going great and receiving praise and fab feedback from theatregoers, and press…

With live music, a cornucopia of amazing costumes and atmospheric sets, including the dwarfs’ cottage, which opens to reveal the interior, this is a visually and auditorily satisfying pantomime.“: The Bucks Herald

Bravo to La Pollard who really was the star of the show – razor sharp timing, a strong voice and some real comedy chops. The scene where she attempted to woo Prince Frederick of Fairford Leys in her camisole set was genuinely hilarious but there were glimpses of her real acting talent too.“: Muddy Stilettos

La Voix stamps her mark on the show, and her double act with Collins is easy and assured, radiating warmth that the audience cannot fail to absorb. As the Wicked Queen, Su Pollard throws herself into the villainous role.”: The Reviews Hub

Rarely even in pantomime do you hear an audience this engaged in a production,
even the theatre foyer is dressed to get them in the mood before the start.“: Pocket Size Theatre

You can’t beat a good pantomime and after last night I am really in the Christmas spirit!“: What’s Good To Do
