Now, more than half a century on, this year's Christmas production in the Whitehall Theatre will be the ever popular "Aladdin" written and Directed by DMS' own Graeme Neil Smith.

The Downfield Company always ensure that their panto contains all the necessary ingredients for a successful, laughter-filled, family show - the handsome "leggy" Principal Boy, the traditional male panto "Dame", and an evil Baddie to boo. Add magical transformation scenes; slapstick custard pie routines; up-to-the-minute songs; corny jokes; special effects; audience participation; and you have the magic recipe that is panto!

As in past years, DMS can be assured of packed audiences full of bright-eyed kids entranced with the magic that is theatre and who have brought along their parents and friends to join in the fun! So, whether you are nine or ninety, pantomime is the show for all the young at heart! Oh yes, it is!
