Oh Yes She Is! Gemma’s A Panto Pro
Gemma Barraclough (LIPA 4:19 Maghull) spent panto season as understudy to Alison Crawford as Princess Jill in ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ at Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre (LHK Productions). Starring with Dan Osbourne (TOWIE), Thelma Madine (Big Fat Gypsy Wedding) and Suzanne Collins, Gemma did an amazing job, showcasing her LIPA 4:19 skills through great acting, two duets with Dan (a cover of ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran and ‘Without Love’ from the musical Hairspray), plus a fantastic solo performance of ‘Frozen’s ‘Let it Go’.
Gemma even demonstrated what a good all-round performer she is by filling in as Daisy the panto cow and by dressing Thelma regularly. Gemma says “It was a brilliant, enjoyable experience, and is a great achievement to add to my CV.”
