New Mills Art Theatre to stage panto get-together

New Mills Art Theatre is staging the pantomime Aladdin in early 2018 and are planning to audition for the cast in late September.
Before the auditions a Panto Get-Together is being held at 7.30pm on September 4 at the Jodrell Street theatre.
Everyone is welcome to go along and meet the production team and register for audition.  Director, Sean Stennings, choreographer, Cathryn Yates and musical director, Tim Walker will talk about the panto, the characters, music, story and staging and will answer any of your questions.
There are plenty of panto characters in the show: Aladdin, Princess Mandarin and her Dad, the Emperor; Wishee Washee, two crazy Chinese policemen; the evil wizard Abanazer; Genies of the Ring and of the Lamp and of course no panto would be complete without the dame – Widow Twankey! – plus more.  They will also be looking for a strong company of dancers and chorus.
Last year’s panto, Beauty and The Beast was awarded two Association of Community Theatre Awards: Debbie Howe for her evil portrayal of Belladonna
and our Choreographers Ella Peatfield and Cathryn Yates picked up the Excellence in Dance award.
If you can’t make the get-together and would like more information, please telephone: 07983 344 862 or email:
Show dates for Aladdin will run over two weekends with performances on January 26, 27 and 28 and February 2 and 3. 
If performing is not for you, but you would like to help out, you are still welcome at the get-together. You could join the stage crew, technical or front of hHouse teams who are all volunteers.
