Des stars at King’s

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

Lo­cal comic Des Clarke was get­ting ready for panto last week... oh yes he was!

The King’s Park fun­ny­man was snapped in cos­tume as the King’s Theatre an­nounced the full cast for this year’s show, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

Des will be play­ing Mud­dles in the panto, which is his fourth year at the King’s.

Des has pre­vi­ously spo­ken of how proud he is to be tread­ing the boards at the King’s.

He said: “I grew up go­ing to pan­tos at the King’s and there’s so many leg­endary names that have taken part in it, like Stan­ley Bax­ter, and Ger­ard Kelly.

“To be a part of it is a ma­jor hon­our.”

Des was re­cently back in Ruther­glen, as he per­formed at the Town Hall as part of his cur­rent tour The Trou­ble With Be­ing Des.

He’d launched the show at the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val last year.

He’ll be joined at the King’s by the likes of Gre­gor Fisher, who will be play­ing Hec­tor the Hench­man, and Juliet Cad­zow as the Wicked Queen.

King’s panto reg­u­lar Jenny Hay­ley-Dou­glas will play the ti­tle char­ac­ter and singer Allan Jay is Prince Lorenzo.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is writ­ten and di­rected by Eric Potts, chore­ographed by Ian West, with light­ing de­sign by John Tap­ster and mu­si­cal di­rec­tion from Pamela McLen­nan.

Snow White is on at the King’s from Thurs­day De­cem­ber 4 un­til Sun­day Jan­uary 10.

Tick­ets can be booked through call­ing 0844 871 7648 or vis­it­ing­gtick­­gow
