Family panto spins into Glasgow laundrette

Regulars at Glasgow’s Majestic Laundrette couldn't believe their eyes today (Thursday), as Aladdin and Widow Twanky descended on the Argyle Street wash house, laden down with last-minute laundry.
Clad in their pantomime finery the duo, played by Andrew Fraser and George Docherty, set about their chores ahead of curtains up on their touring community pantomime, to the delight of Glaswegians waiting for their service wash.
Scripted by John Binnie and directed by Bill Wright, the Glasgow Arts community production, set in a market in downtown Glasgow, follows the story of Aladdin and Princess Jasmine as they embark on a fantastic journey to outwit Evil Abanazer, with a little help from the magical Genie. 
Councillor Archie Graham OBE, Chair of Glasgow Life, said: “I’m delighted that we are able to bring this magical tale to the people of Glasgow.  

"Christmas is a time for families, fun and laughter and I can think of no better way to celebrate the joy of the festive season than by coming together to enjoy this wonderful Christmas pantomime. And with tickets priced at just £3 (£2 concessions) this fantastic production offers a wonderful opportunity for all ages to experience the festive fun.”
The community pantomime kicks off at Barmulloch Community Centre on Tuesday, 29th November and visits fourteen community venues across the city, from Possilpoint to Castlemilk, until Saturday, 17th December.  
Tickets are priced at £3/£2 and are available directly from participating Community Centres. To find out more please visit 
So, what are you waiting for? Grant your family’s wishes and hop on your magic carpet to the fairest panto of them all this Christmas.
