time for kids

ON WEDNESDAY, January 16, 40 young performers will take to the stage at Forfar’s Reid Hall for the opening night of Forfar and Kirriemuir STARS’ pantomime – Aladdin.

The cast consists entirely of five to 16 year olds who are looking forward to appearing on stage once again, with many of them having previously wowed local audiences with their performances in last year’s hit Rising Youngstars’ show, Guys & Dolls.

“Obviously, Aladdin, which is a traditional pantomime, is very different from a Broadway show such as Guys and Dolls but the young people involved have made the transition perfectly,” said Fiona Retalic, the pantomime’s producer and also the producer of Guys & Dolls.

“A wealth of young talent will be on show during Aladdin and I’d like to encourage everyone, of all ages, to come along – not only for a great night of panto but also to see the stars of tomorrow singing, dancing and acting their hearts out!”

STARS’ production of Aladdin will be performed at The Reid Hall, Forfar at 7.30 p.m. from Wednesday, January 16 until Friday, January 18, 2013 with a matinee performance on Saturday, January 19.

Tickets (£7 and £5 concessions) are available from Forfar Golf Driving Range; Garlands Florist, East High Street, Forfar; David Sims, Roods, Kirriemuir; and by emailing
