Gingerbread Man in Letham

THE GINGERBREAD Man is the story depicted in this year’s pantomime staged by Letham Drama Group.

The story is traditional but with some twists and a few additional characters showing up to add to the fun and intrigue and it’s all centred on Letham and its environs.

The Letham Drama Group has staged a string of very successful pantomimes over the last decade and this show has the potential to add to that number.

The script, written by a long serving member of the group, has adapted the story of the Gingerbread Man to incorporate the traditional with the modern, the costumes provided by Utopia Costumes reflects this as does the scenery painted by the Dawn Crighton.

There is the usual mix of characters, The Dame played by Andy Beckett, the would be villain played by Douglas Wren and the principal girl and principal boy are played by Alex Smith and Eilidh Collins respectively.

The singing talents of Ella Clapperton and Katie Hogarth and Kelly McCubbin intersperse the scenes for added entertainment.

Geoff Bray turns up as a very unlikely Detective trying to track down the runaway Gingerbread Man, while Aggie (Catherine Parker) causes all sorts of mayhem in Pantoland.

The pantomime will be staged in Letham Village Hall from Thursday, January 24, until Saturday, January 26, with shows at 7.30 p.m. and 2 p.m. for the Saturday afternoon matinee.

Tickets are available from The Spar in Letham and you can visit their Facebook or for further information.
