Let’s Get Aladdin
This year’s Staff Panto, Let’s Get Aladdin, especially written, directed and “refereed” by Mrs Baylis played to an Arts Centre packed with Senior pupils on Friday December 5th.
Mr Hodgson starred in the title role and Mrs Pickering played Genie of the Lamp. Other roles were; Mr Sharples as the Storyteller; Mr Lockett and Mr Keenan as Ping and Pong; Mrs Air as Princess Jasmine; Mr McKenna as Widow Twanky; Mr Boddy as Wishy Washy; Miss O’Neal as the Genie of the Ring; Ms West as the evil Abanazer with many more teaching and support staff appearing as townspeople, dancers and street traders.
The audience, too, were brilliant participants and the event raised £1400 for the Wood Street Mission and the Bursary Appeal.
