Pantomime performance perfection, oh yes it was!

The Lamlash Drama Club and friends excelled themselves with their production of Sinbad’s Desert Adventure which will go down in the annuls of panto history on Arran as one of their most popular shows, oh yes it will!

The two-hour performance, held over three days in the community theatre last week, had all of the ingredients of a good panto – a princess, played by Nickey Summer and an evil antagonist, Genghis, accurately portrayed by David Simkin.

The good guy and hero of the tale, Mark Nelson playing as Sinbad the love interest of Fatima the Princess, doing a good job of being the antithesis of Genghis, who scared and delighted the audience at the same time.

Adding to the heady mix of richly decorated sets and over the top acting, the audience were provided with ample opportunity to join in the fun with a barrage of ‘he’s behind you’ and a particular favourite in this production, ‘genie!’ which saw the audience, young and old, giving their full co-operation in assisting Princess Fatima in trying to summon the magic genie.
