Deck the halls with boughs of hollyâ€¦.itâ€™s the pantomime season again, eagerly awaited by tiny tots and adults alike!
At this festive season Metro is presenting a pantomime seldom performed any more,Â ALI BABA, complete with all the stock characters,Â Ali Baba, Wakey Fakir, the evil El Hoot Dawg, the sinister Rhum Baba, and of course a pantomimeÂ dame (this year Cassie Blanca). Throw in the never to be forgottenÂ Demon Distastely, add his arch enemyÂ Fairy NerdÂ and sprinkle in an animal or two inÂ Mudder, the sacred cowÂ andÂ Dobbin, the donkeyÂ and you can see we have a great line up of comedic characters to entertain you.
Many new faces are appearing in this years panto as a series of complications have resulted in many regulars not being in a position to perform the show this year.
Included areÂ Christopher DellingerÂ as the Demon,Â Jennifer MoranÂ as the Fairy,Â James WalkerÂ as Ali Baba,Â Andre WadeÂ as Wakey Fakir andSara DickinsonÂ as Polly.
Johnny DuncanÂ who writes the pantomime each year is co-directing withÂ Cathy WilmotÂ along with popular choreographerÂ Dawn EwenÂ andÂ David RogersÂ conducting the baton as Musical Director.
Ticket prices remain the same as last years pantomime atÂ $23.50Â for adults but onlyÂ $14.00Â for children of ten years of age and under,
There will be laughs galore, lots of audience participation, eye boggling sceneryÂ in what is guaranteed to be the highlight of the holiday season.
