Rehearsals for this year’s Brechin pantomime, which is Aladdin, are well under way, with organisers announcing the full cast list.
The show, put on by Brechin Combined Productions (a collaboration between Brechin Amateur Operatic Society and Opus Theatre Club), will run at the City Hall at 7.30 p.m. from Wednesday, December 4, to Saturday, December 7, with a matinee on Saturday at 2.30 p.m.
The production team consists of the talented Graeme Baird, producer; and Ron Stewart, musical director; with the newly added Laura Ferguson, choreographer.
A spokesperson for the panto said: “Aladdin this year will be played by Maia Middleton and Princess So-Shi is played by Erin Smith. The wonderful Brian Mathieson is Widow Twankey with young Wishee Washee played by Caitlyn Boyd. Newcomer Miller Young is the evil Abanazar with Ross Robertson playing the good Genie of the Lamp. Village policemen PC Ping and Pong are the funny Teresa Warden and Danielle Collie. With lots of other parts being played and rehearsed we are looking forward to show week.”
Tickets are expected to go on sale in November, and more information on this will follow.
The spokesperson added: “We would like to thank Angus Council for the funding they provided us with last year for the hire of the City Hall. We are very appreciative. We look forward to seeing you all at the show.”
