Mystery role for the Rev Ian Miller in DPT’s annual pantomime
The Rev Ian Miller will appear at the Denny Civic Theatre.
Dumbarton People’s Theatre (DPT) held an audition for this year’s Pantomime – ‘Freezin’ – to be presented in the Denny Civic Theatre on 8th December and 10th to 15th December. There was an excellent turnout with over 35 people competing for the main parts. Director, Debbie Chalmers had great difficulty in selecting from the talent that was available.
The Dame this year will be played by John Maltman – no stranger to this role. The wicked Queen will be Sharon Rowatt and the ineffectual King will be Gareth Williams. The juvenile leads, or the heroes, will be played by Robbie Hail, Louise Brodie and Ben Miller.
Louise and Ben are newcomers to DPT and Ben is still at school. He is the grandson of popular local clergyman, the Rev Ian Miller, who also has been cast in a very special part.
Three comical, magical elves – Luke Gregory, Lou Barnes and Jamie Porterfield – will also appear. George Hawthorn, another DPT regular, is the Duke while Peter McBride, another new face arrives in time to save the world! Yes, it all happens with DPT.
Musical Director is Jackie Fosh. Scriptwriters are Andy Allan, Janette Barnes, Siobhan McCulloch and Ally Priestley.
Rehearsals will shortly begin – three times a week and a chorus with dancers will be put in place along with the back stage team with Wendy Cairns in charge.
The important part of Maisie the Cow has still to be cast. Tickets will be on sale to the general public from 10th November in McDermid’s Keystore in Dumbarton.
