Rigg's Hall Pantomime - 'Aladdin'

Wednesday 29 January 2014

The House Play season got under way last weekend in fine style with Rigg's Hall's version of 'Aladdin', penned and directed by Assistant Housemaster Chris Cook.

As is the tradition with Rigg's productions, almost the entire House was involved in one way or another, whether it was the 30-odd cast on stage, or the backstage crew, those involved in set design, programme design, and the multitude of other roles needed to make the show a success. 

Reviewing the hugely entertaining show and paying tribute to some of the most memorable performances, Housemaster Peter Middleton wrote that “whilst we had suggested somewhat tongue-in-cheek that this would be the best House play that the audience would have seen so far this term, in fact it seems highly unlikely that the Ashton Theatre will see another show this year that is so entertaining, eye-wateringly funny and clearly enormous fun to perform in”.
