Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

It’s that time of year again... oh yes it is!

This year’s Christ­mas panto is now in full swing at Ruther­glen Town Hall.

Sleep­ing Beauty ar­rived at the venue last week­end, and will beat there un­til just be­fore Christ­mas.

Star­ring for­mer Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent con­tes­tant Ed­ward Reid as Fairy Lov­abelle, the show will of­fer up a mag­i­cal tale for kids of all ages.

Ed­ward told the Re­former: “I’m look­ing for­ward to be­ing back at Ruther­glen Town Halls Panto as I al­ways get a great wel­come there.

“I hope ev­ery­body en­joys the show as my feet are loup­ing run­ning around in th­ese high heels ev­ery day!”

The plot is the clas­sic Sleep­ing Beauty story, with a few added twists.

It sees the King and Queen cel­e­brate the birth of their beau­ti­ful baby daugh­ter by throw­ing a huge party with ev­ery­one in­vited!.

Well, al­most ev­ery­one is in­vited, and once the wicked Fairy Hor­rend­abelle has got wind of the news she starts to plan a ter­ri­ble sur­prise of her own for the King and Queen.

Armed with an evil spell and a spin­ning wheel she places a curse on the baby princess that only true love’s kiss can break.

It’s up to the good fairies, Fairy Lov­abelle and Fairy Sen­si­belle to save the day, with a lit­tle ex­tra help from Mud­dles the brave but ever so silly court jester. Will good tri­umph over evil? Will true love’s kiss break the spell? And just where ex­actly do you find a prince in South La­nark­shire?

All of th­ese ques­tions prom­ise to be an­swered in the fun-filled tale that’s aimed at fam­i­lies.

The pan­tomime runs from tomorrow (De­cem­ber 17) un­til Wed­nes­day De­cem­ber 23, with times vary­ing each day.
