Aladdin panto don’t miss it!

Coleraine Provincial Players are busy rehearsing for another family favourite, Aladdin.

The panto, sponsored by the Lodge Hotel, will run at Coleraine Town Hall from 14th– 23th January 2016.

Provincial Players Chairman, Philip, told the Times: “Last year we had a fantastic response to our show playing to sold out halls and are hoping for the same for 2016.

“This year the committee has passed a price freeze for the fourth year in a row and have also extended our group booking offers for the local groups and public.

“We think with our pricing structure it makes it easy on the pocket to bring the full family along, to lift the dark damp January evenings, and with tickets from as low as £4 each and with the show being pencilled in to finish around 10:15pm - so that it makes it not too late a night for the kids on school nights.”

The box office for the show - situated inside Coleraine Town Hall - opens on Monday, December 14.

The opening hours are: Monday 14th – Thursday 17th 12pm to 4pm; Friday 18th and Saturday 19th, 11am to 4pm. Closed Sunday. Monday 21st- Wednesday 23rd, 11am to 4pm and Tuesday 29th – Wednesday 30th, 11am to 4pm.

The box office re-opens on Monday 4th January 2016. Monday-Thursday, 12pm to 4pm, Friday and Saturday 11am to 4pm. Closed Sunday. Philip explains: “For the first time we will be having the booking office open from 7pm to 9pm Mon to Friday.

“We find it’s always hard to get out of work for tickets to the show, so we have added this extra facility to give the public a chance to get the tickets after working hours.”

Philip went on to thanks the show’s sponsors, particularly the Lodge Hotel: “We are pleased to have them on board as our main sponsor, we are really grateful for all the staff and management team at The Lodge Hotel for their continued support, along with all our army of loyal sponsors and to all our new sponsors we as a club are grateful for all their input and can’t thank you enough.”

Encouraging the public to support the pantomime, he added: “Rehearsals have been going well and to be honest we just can’t wait to get the show on. Why not get a few tickets as stocking fillers to start the New Year with a bit of laugh and family fun.”
