With just over two weeks to go until ‘curtain up’, rehearsals are well underway for Fraserburgh Junior Arts Society’s 60th “Diamond Jubilee” Pantomime.
This is the society’s second outing for ‘Beauty and the Beast’, which was first performed in 2000 and produced by Margaret Adams and Margaret Moffat.
This year’s show, produced by Craig Roger and Daniel Simpson, will see Paula Trail and Stuart Leel as ‘Beauty’ and ‘the Beast’ respectively.
Bill Paterson will be reprising his role as ‘Dame Dora’, with Martin Stephen as ‘Fat French Franc’ and Stephen Summers as ‘Count Danton’ and Colin Clark as ‘Loopy Louis’.
Tickets will be on sale at the Dalrymple Hall and Arts Centre on Saturday, December 7, at 9am.
Due to its success last year, Santa’s Magical Grotto will also be open from 11am to 4pm. For a fee of £5, children can come along to meet Santa and receive a parcel from him.
FJAS members will also be carol singing at the Shopping Evening on Friday, November 29, and will be handing out copies of a “Beauty and the Beast” children’s colouring competition.
Entries can then be handed in to Santa’s Grotto on Saturday, December 7, and three prizewinners will be chosen during Panto Week.
