Bill Scott on Aladdin

December 4 2018

“We are so pleased to be returning to Falmouth with our Aladdin, for what is rapidly becoming an annual tradition!” says Bill Scott, Miracle’s Artistic Director. “Apart from an anatomically challenged pantomime camel, the most unusual and appealing feature of this production is the ‘show within a show’ element, where as well as enjoying all the usual seasonal fun – “it’s behind you, oh no it isn’t!” – the audience is allowed glimpses into the backstage world, with the Miracle cast playing ‘The Willoughby-Brown Family’ struggling to give a polished performance while the wheels gradually fall off their theatrical cart!”

The show features a brand-new combination of Miracle on-stage acting and musical talent, with Cinderella and Bah Humbug stars Tom Adams, Keri Jessiman, Giles King and Hannah Stephens being joined on the Pavilion stage by Holly Cassidy (Frankenstein, Dr Livingstone, I Presume), Rose McPhilemy (The Cherry Orchard) and regular Miracle face, Benjamin Dyson.

“I’m excited that we have been able to assemble a cast of Miracle stars, all of whom are natural comedians, blessed with all the talents needed to tell a classic story in a most original and entertaining way.” Continues Bill “And what a creative team! Once again we’ll be enjoying the benefit of Tom Adams’ unique songwriting abilities, a whole new world of costume and set designs from Jude Munden (this will be her 29th production for Miracle!) and the brilliant physical theatre and choreography skills of co-director Kyla Goodey – four heads are definitely better than one!” Bill Scott
