Cur­tain’s up at Perth panto as Provost of­fi­cially re-opens the­atre af­ter ren­o­va­tion

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE WEEKEND TICKET -

Tick­ets are fly­ing off the shelves for Perth panto Aladdin, the first show in Perth The­atre’s re­stored Ed­war­dian au­di­to­rium fol­low­ing the the­atre’s ex­ten­sive trans­for­ma­tion.

Gavin Jon Wright plays Aladdin, and never far away are Widow Twankey, aka dame Bar­rie Hunter, and Wishy Washy, played by Tyler Collins.

Aladdin and his pal Jas­mine have to stop the evil bad­die Abanazer in this soap bub­bly, mad­cap, lamp-rub­bing ex­trav­a­ganza.

Panto Aladdin is the first pro­duc­tion to be per­formed in the ren­o­vated the­atre, which has been closed since 2014.

The the­atre was of­fi­cially re-opened by Provost Den­nis Mel­loy on Satur­day at the first per­for­mance of this year’s panto.

Satur­day’s au­di­ence in­cluded many for­mer young stars of pre­vi­ous pan­tos, in­clud­ing ac­tor Colin McRedie, as well as other Perth the­atre stal­warts Ian Grieve who di­rected last year’s panto, and Una Ma­clean.

Aladdin runs un­til Satur­day, Jan­uary 6.
