Jamie Alexander Wilson
Jamie is getting on a bit these days. This is his tenth year producing in Sevenoaks, and his 21st pantomime season all told.
Jamie started his life in panto as a stage hand, and, via roles as Principal Boy, Comic, Villain, and even a very brief appearance as Dame, eventually became a producer. Since then, achieving wide critical acclaim has so far alluded him. Dick Whittington will be the 25th pantomime Jamie has written and directed, which by anyone’s reckoning is too many.
Away from panto, Jamie has been a jack of all trades and master of very little to speak of. A ‘career’ spanning singing, acting, directing, and teaching, travelling the world as a hotel entertainment consultant, sitting in the dark tv gallery of a well known shopping channel, and wearing a silly uniform as a Cruise Director on the rivers of Europe, has produced almost nothing noteworthy, and Jamie has nearly run out of ways to avoid getting a proper job.
Jamie would like to dedicate this year’s pantomime season to his friend Les, which Les would hate.
