The cast of Freezin’, staged by the DPT for Christmas, enjoyed themselves.

DPT’s sell out Pantomime, ‘Freezin’ which ran at the Denny Civic Theatre for the first half of December was a huge hit.

In ‘Freezin’, written by club members, the mythical town of Drumtartan was condemned to permanent winter due to an evil spell cast by the Queen, played by Sharon Rowatt.

Sharon, along with her dithering husband, King Donald (Gareth Williams), kept the kingdom trapped within a wall of ice.

But the townspeople fought back. The Dame, Augusta Ayr, was John Maltman, who led the challenge along with her two likeable sons, Logan and Chanter.

They were played by Robbie Hail and young Ben Miller. And Chanter has a very lively pet cow, Maisie (Ross Kelbie).

Romance was in the air for Dame Augusta and Logan with George Hawthorn as the Duke and Louise Brodie as his beautiful daughter, Freya.

The ‘goodies’ make a spectacular escape from Drumtartan and set about a plan to remove the evil Royals. They were assisted by the magical elves, played by Luke Gregory, Eve Gallacher and Andrew Russell. Completing the cast will be many familiar local faces and a supporting chorus.

The Rev Ian Miller made an appearance and didn’t need a dog collar for his role, which he enjoyed thoroughly.

The colourful costumes and the clever and appropriate scenery were very professional.

Dot Moir and Pat Green were responsible for the wardrobe, and Wendy Cairns for the set design, as well as leading a team of back stage workers with Allison Green on properties.

The Director was Debbie Chalmers with Siobhan McCulloch assisting. Jackie Fosh was in charge of the music.

In all, the Dumbarton People’s Theatre panto was a big team effort for the club with many willing hands making sure our community enjoyed a great festive experience.
