Rutherglen Reformer - - Rutherglen Rep - Jonathan Geddes

Sev­eral ac­tors with Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang con­nec­tions are set to tread the boards in pan­tomime this year - oh yes they are!

For­mer Stonelaw High pupil Jayd John­son will be tak­ing one of the lead roles in a pro­duc­tion of Aladdin at Cum­ber­nauld The­atre.

It runs from now un­til De­cem­ber 24 and will be the River City and Field of Blood ac­tress’s first taste of a panto.

Croft­foot comic Des Clark will be tread­ing the boards at the King’s pan­tomime again this year.

He’ll be play­ing Starkey, one of Cap­tain Hook’s mot­ley pi­rate crew, in this year’s show Peter Pan.

It runs from De­cem­ber 6 through un­til Jan­uary 11.

River City ac­tor Gary La­mont is in Trea­sure Is­land, which is run­ning from now through un­til Jan­uary 18 at the Pav­il­lion The­atre.

The for­mer Castlemilk High pupil will have an in­ter­est­ing chal­lenge on his heads as he’s play­ing Mrs Bird­eye in the panto.

Lastly, TV star John Bar­row­man, who stayed in Cam­bus­lang in the 1970s, will be ap­pear­ing in Cin­derella, run­ning from De­cem­ber 13 to Jan­uary 4 at the Clyde Au­di­to­rium in Glas­gow.

The Doc­tor Who star, who hosted the open­ing cer­e­mony of the Com­mon­wealth Games ear­lier this year, has been a panto reg­u­lar in Scot­land over the past few years.

Tick­ets for all shows are avail­able now, and times and prices vary for each per­for­mance.
