A new community pantomime has been announced and is promising an affordable, exciting adventure for families across the west of Glasgow. Actor, Cameron Fulton, has been confirmed as Aladdin.

Join Aladdin, Widow Twankey and Wishee Washee in Maryhill from 5-30 December, 2019*, where they are soon to swap the streets of west Glasgow for the Pyramids of Egypt on an unexpected and exciting adventure…

Panto Director, Brendon McIlroy, wanted to design a Christmas event which wasn’t going to be exclusive, rather inclusive. At Christmas, events can cost the earth, never mind having to buy presents and save up for nights out.

He said: "A Lad in Maryhill will be a truly unique show that’s like nothing else going on in Glasgow just now. We wanted to create something special and ultimately community focused for all the family to enjoy without the big price tag usually associated with pantos.”

 Widow Twankey's launderette isn't doing too well, Wishee Washee is up to mischief and to top it all off Aladdin has fallen in love with a Princess! Will he be able to make his wishes come true and defeat the wicked Abanazar? You’ll need to head to Maryhill Community Halls to find out!

Cameron Fulton who is cast as the lead, Aladdin, said: “"I am delighted to be spending Christmas in Glasgow playing Aladdin. I think bringing great theatre to the communities around Maryhill is a wonderful thing and I am really looking forward to seeing you all there. I know all of the cast cannot wait to get together and have a laugh with the audience - whit a team! Hope to see you there, so get yer tickets!”


*Thursday to Sunday evening performances, plus a Saturday matinee.

Early bird prices of £8 child/£10 adult until 31st October. Afterwards the prices will range from £10-£13. Under 3s go free!
