In a recent blog post, we introduced three out of four cast members in Aladdin, our family summer pantomime. We are delighted to now announce who we have playing the lead ...
Tickets are still available but they're selling fast!

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 ...

About David Pibworth ...
David is the owner of David Pibworth Productions who provides entertainment for theatre and corporate events. This ties in very well with The Arches Theatre, an outside venue that David owns underneath a disused railway line, equidistant from Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes. This was one of the few venues that could operate with social distancing in place during the summer of 2020 and where they ran everything from Shakespeare to Richard Digance through the summer months.
David has been involved in light entertainment for many years, even going back as far as working on a production with Norman Wisdom in London. He has a knack of keeping in touch with everyone he's worked with and would bring such people as Chas and Dave, Kenny Ball and Acker Bilk round to play locally when the chance arose.
His company also represent the stage rights for Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, the writers of Steptoe and Son and Hancock's Half Hour. He has recently negotiated permission with Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais to produce Porridge on stage although this is all hampered by the current situation and the availability of theatres.
Next year, at the Arches Theatre, he will produce Ripping Yarns, written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. This will be an interesting production as not only does one episode involve playing a football match, but also with the agreement of Michael Palin and the wife of the late Terry Jones, it has been decided that all the profits on this production will go to a dementia charity as Terry Jones died as a result of dementia, as did David's father and uncle.
