Oh yes there is... still time to see the panto

Wishaw Press - - DISTRICT NEWS -

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.”

Tick­ets can be booked by call­ing 01698 403120.
