REHEARSALS are well under way for the Galashiels panto – oh yes they are!

Members of the Right Angle Theatre Company are set to perform Mother Goose, following the huge success of last year’s show, which played to sell-out audiences for five nights.

The group have performed the pantomime over the last 27 years.

The script for the show has been provided by Alan Frayn and contains the usual amount of slapstick and humour which is sure to bring a smile to the audience's faces.

Once more, the production team has selected a varied bunch of songs and music.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public in late October, early November and will be available from Fountain News (Market Street) and Noble’s Fish shop (Bank Street).

As in previous years everyone is advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

This is more relevant this year as the audience capacity has had to be reduced due to circumstances out with the Company’s control.

However, with the support and assistance from Live Borders, the “show will go on” all be it with a different look regards the presentation of the stage itself.

The main parts are being performed by a very talented bunch of people and are as follows:

Mother Goose - Jodie Millar; Jill - Ellie Bryson Welsh; Silly Billy - Billy Rooney; The Squire - Howard Tame; Colin - Skye-Machara Henderson; Bill Bumpkin - Amy Welsh; Ben Bogtrotter - Ally Turnbull; Demon Discontent - Stuart Mitchell; Fairy Friendship - Amanda Blacklock; Pricilla the Goose - Julie Smith; King Proper-Gander - Craig Douglas; Queen Goosegog - Leanne Robinson.
