Expect frolicks, laughter and fun for all the family when Ramsey Stage Company imports some eastern promise to a unique town venue.

Brush off the post-Christmas blues and prepare for a half-term treat with the magical pantomime Aladdin, which will be performed in the main auditorium at The Camp, Wood Lane, from Wednesday, February 18, to Saturday, February 21.

The new amateur theatre company - which formed in October - will put on its first production at the historic venue which is home to the popular Ramsey 1940s Weekend.

The show’s producer, Susan Allinson, said: “We have had such a strong, positive reaction to the formation of our new theatre group. I believe that this is something the town of Ramsey has needed for such a long time. It really is a case of giving local people the access to quality productions without having to travel miles and miles. We will be on their front doorstep.

“A major factor is the issue of a space to perform theatre in Ramsey, as sadly the old theatre in the town was knocked down quite some time ago. We are excited to be performing in the Ramsey 1940s camp drill hall, where we will be transforming the space into a virtual theatre and transporting our audiences to Peking.”

Also on board as the artistic director is her son, Adam Allinson, who is taking time out from his regular work as the resident pianist on the Queen Mary 2. He said: “I am thrilled to have been given this sort of opportunity. I have always loved pantomime but it is very rare that you are actually able to be part of something from scratch, such as Ramsey Stage Company. I have worked with a number of amateur theatre groups and what is very clear is that the professionalism and commitment from our local cast is tremendous.”

Gather your family for what promises to be the highlight of the school break.
