Players take panto to Alyth
Alyth residents are reminded that the Blairgowrie Players will be taking their successful panto`Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves’on tour to the east Perthshire town later this month.
Hot on the heels of a five-day-long run in Blairgowrie Town Hall last month, the Players are delighted to be able to bring the panto to Alyth and hope to brighten the dark gloomy nights of January with a colourful version of one of the most familiar of the Arabian Night tales.
The story of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves was originally a folk tale and tells the story of two brothers, Ali Baba and Cassim, greed and a great deal of treasure.
The original story is full of gore and violence, but the Players’panto version sticks to the main part of the story without all that and adds a humorous, lighthearted approach with a happy ending.
The cast of nearly 40, including many youngsters and around a dozen newcomers to the Players, are all involved in the travelling production.
The panto will take place in Alyth Town Hall on Saturday and Sunday, January 20 and 21.
Both performances will be at 2pm so that children can come along with their parents.
Tickets cost £8 (£6 for concessions) and will be available shortly from PriceKracker in Alyth or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
