The cast for the 2019 pantomime at Falkirk’s FTH Theatre has been announced.
Produced by Imagine Theatre, this year’s show will be Aladdin.
Aladdin has become one of the most popular pantomimes in the UK thanks to its magical story of a young boy who chances upon a wish-granting genie.
Television star Libby McArthur and singing sensation Barbara Bryceland will lead the star cast.
McArthur, best known for her roles in River City and Taggart, will play the Empress while X Factor and The Voice star Bryceland will appear as the Spirit of the Ring.
Joining them, Craig Glover will be returning to play larger than life dame Widow Twankey, with Scott Watson as son Wishee Washee and Derek McGhie as the evil Abanazar.
Joining them are Emily Cochrane as Princess Jasmine and Henry Sanders as the Genie.
Director Stuart Bird said: “I am delighted to see many of our fantastic cast back at Falkirk again this Christmas! Last year’s first Imagine panto in Falkirk was a great success and the cast and company were just lovely to work with!
“From Aladdin this year audiences can expect plenty of local humour, coupled with great songs and spectacular special effects, costumes and set. Will the magic carpet fly? No spoilers…book your tickets and find out!”
Aladdin plays at Falkirk’s FTH Theatre between Friday 6 December 2019 and Tuesday 24 December 2019.
