The Wokingham Paper - - LEISURE -

THERE’S not long now un­til Read­ing’s pan­tomime faces its cur­tain up.

This year, The Hexagon’s sea­sonal show is Aladdin and once again stars Justin Fletcher (Mr Tum­ble to those in the know) and Paul Morse.

They’re joined by David J Hig­gins, who played the Beast in Beauty and the Beast and Read­ing new­com­ers Aaron Gib­son, So­phie Ayers and Ly­di­aRose Ber­tie.

The cast have been hard at work in South Street for the past cou­ple of weeks get­ting to grips with all the lines, jokes, dances and com­edy rou­tines, ready for Satur­day’s first per­for­mance.

The show runs through­out the fes­tive sea­son with per­for­mances through to Sun­day, Jan­uary 6.

There are some spe­cial per­for­mances too: a re­laxed show suit­able for peo­ple who have ad­di­tional needs will take place at 10.30am on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 14 and 2pm on Fri­day, Jan­uary 4, while hard of hear­ing peo­ple will ap­pre­ci­ate signed per­for­mances on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 21 at 7pm, 1pm on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 27 and 5pm on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 29.
