But, before we do, let's recap which of our local cast is playing who:
Charlotte Pask will be playing the role of the Princess
David Pibworth will play Abanazar and the Genie
Keith Lennox will take on the role of Widow Twanky, while co-producing and directing the performance!
To add some more sparkle to this already magical cast, we have the fabulous Anna Wingerath playing the role of Aladdin!
Anna lives in Olney and is a great friend of The Arches Theatre. She has worked with Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy appearing in many of their performances over the years, including Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, The Vicar of Dibley and The Complete History of Comedy series.
She also performed in MKTOC's production of 'A Shot in the Dark' last year at The Arches. She played the role of Kato! If you saw the show, I am sure you'll agree with me that she a top comedic actress!
Rehearsals are in full swing for our performances on 29th and 30th August. If the show is as funny as our run-throughs, then you are going to have a brilliant time with us.
"Tickets are available, but they are selling fast!"
We have two performances each day at 1pm and 4pm. We invite you to bring a picnic and enjoy it in the parkland from one hour before the show. Get a fun afternoon for all the family booked into your diary and have something to look forward to this summer holiday.

Until next time ...
