Perth Theatre have announced that Sinbad will be their family panto offering for the upcoming festive period.
The show will tell the story of Sinbad, who after her seven long voyages, wants peace, a pal and a party in her hometown of Perthepolis, this Christmas.
The theatre’s favourite panto dame, Barrie Hunter will star in the performance as Dame Jackie Alltrades, as well as writing and directing the production.
He will be joined by Ewan Somers, who plays Sinbad’s brother Finn Lad, after the pair shared dame duties in Snow White and the Seven Dames last year.
Rehanna MacDonald makes her Perth Theatre debut as Sinbad and Helen Logan returns as evil stepmother Vindicta.
Peter Collins plays Hector the tax collector and Rebekah Lumsden plays Greta, a young woman who will do anything she can to live in a good world with good people.
Pulling on his frock and heels for his ninth Perth Theatre panto, Barrie Hunter, widely acknowledged as one of Scotland’s top panto dames, said: “I can’t wait to get started on this year’s Perth panto, Sinbad – my first as writer, director and performer.
“We’ve put together a great team onstage and behind the scenes, and you can expect all the usual fun and frolics, songs and silliness, magic and mirth.
“We might even take you overseas and underground and meet the local wildlife – what’s not to love?”
Sinbad, Perth Theatre, Saturday, November 30 until Saturday, January 4.
