This year our Christmas panto will be "Aladdin", and as usual that means it's almost time to get started with rehearsals!
Ever thought you'd like to have a go on stage? Well now's the time to come along to the Aladdin auditions and show us your stuff. This year our Aladdin script has been written by some of our very talented theatre club members, Mary Sommerville and Kerwin Robertson, so you can get yourselves ready for some hilarious jokes and situations, hand crafted for our Culter audience!
Whether you want one of the main parts, a supporting role, or just to be one of our great chorus, young or old, we'd love for you to come along.
