Last Monday saw Queenie appearing again at Dragon Hall, Norwich, before 85 pupils from Colman Road Primary School. They were great!
This time, I had a servant. With a Lizzie-style nickname, 'Tadpole' (because she's little and squiggly), my friend and Castle colleague Annie Perry made a wonderful lady's maid, hamming it up and getting things wrong so that I could be bossy and horrid and generally play it for laughs.
The next two weekends will find me back at Dragon Hall, not as Queenie but as me. Local Cub Scouts are having a sleepover and I'm doing Dragon-based drama sessions!! I will have my sword, shield and indeed, fire extinguisher at the ready.
