Christmas may be behind us - but that won’t stop Isle residents taking in a pantomime!

Rehearsals are well advanced for a traditional show in the area, with the curtain set to go up for the first time on the show in West Stockwith later this month.

Aladdin is this year’s choice for the village players, including children, who form the cast of 20 plus.

It’s a “more or less traditional take” on the Aladdin story, but with a modern twist here and there, said narrator Auriol Bird, who also takes on the King’s role.

So expect magic, mayhem, and much audience participation in the great cosy atmosphere of a village hall, over two nights with one matinee performance.

Producer is June Ray, with Dave Seddon on music and lighting, costumes arranged by Dorothy Ball, and scenery by Malcolm Moody.

See the show on January 24 to 25 from 7pm (2pm Saturday matinee) at the Gertrude Lawrence Memorial Hall, Main Street, West Stockwith.

Call 01427 891488 for tickets priced £6 adults, £3 children.

Photographer Sarah Washbourn went along to snap the cast as they rehearsed.
