Sophie Methuen – Turner’s Elf experiences and Nativity lead to an exciting New Year…

So, December was an exciting challenge. I was given the role of Storyteller Elf in Santa’s Grotto. Basically, I had to interact with the Kids, prepare them for Santa and make their experience as magical as possible.

We had a lot of problems with the Grotto – several members of staff got really ill, so we had to find several new Elves. Quite funny how many professional actors who could fit into a size small costume that I know.

However, we had some excellent reviews and some great publicity.

The Nativity also was a challenge – swap of characters, very fast costume changes, but people said they found it hilarious! Not sure it’s family entertainment, but it was fun to be a part of!

That pretty well concludes 2017. Overall, 2017 has been a pretty great year.

If you have offered me some work last year, recommended me or encouraged me, know that I am honestly grateful and it has had a huge effect on my career.

Hope to see as many of you as possible in the New Year.

Best Wishes
