Oh yes there is... still time to see the panto
As the panto season draws to a close there is still time left to catch Aladdin at Motherwell Theatre.
The successful show extended its run, giving pantolovers extra time to fit it into their festive holiday break.
Spillers Pantomimes will be performing Aladdin until Sunday, January 13, with all the traditional panto ingredients.
Packed full of family fun, there will be laugh-outloud comedy, spectacular sets and costumes and even some 3D action.
Join Aladdin on an adventure from rags to riches, with a flying carpet and a wish-granting genie, as he woos the princess and tries to escape an evil sorcerer.
The pantomime is produced and directed by Spillers Pantomimes, and production director Bev Berridge said: “Spillers are returning for our 13th year to produce the pantomime at Motherwell Theatre. “Every year is different, and this year is no exception. “We have a magical flying carpet, which is rather spectacular and have also introduced a fantastic 3D element, so the audience can feel like part of the production.”
Motherwell Concert Hall venue manager Craig Smart added: “We are delighted to have Motherwell Shopping Centre on board as this year’s sponsor.
“The shopping centre is an integral part of the local area, and as the panto has become ingrained in local tradition, it was an obvious choice.
“We are also grateful to have the support of Arts & Business Scotland through the Culture & Business Fund Scotland.
“The support of both parties has allowed us to make this year’s panto even bigger and better than previous years.”
