Sian Husband stars in professional panto, Aladdin

Talented performer and dancer, Sian Husband Y11, starred in Hartlepool’s Christmas pantomime, Aladdin at Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre. Running from Thursday 15 December – Wednesday 28 December 2016, Sian showed confidence and determination, performing to audience after audience.

Sian explained: “I auditioned and got a role as one of the four senior dancers. We rehearsed after school and weekends and we couldn’t wait for the shows to start.”

With the panto proudly presented by Elite Productions, Sian even had the opportunity to work alongside Coronation Street’s Terence Maynard, who starred as Abanazar.

Sian told us: “Terence was amazing and really friendly and helpful, as were the cast and backstage crew.”

“The set looked amazing on the dress rehearsal – that was the first time we saw it. I loved wearing my costumes for the first time which were made to measure and beautiful.”

“We were nervous on the opening night but it went by so fast and we had fantastic reviews for the dancing.”

“The last show was fab and we couldn’t believe it was all finished, we were all gutted it was over.”

“I’m going to audition for Cinderella next year with the same company.”

The response from the press about the pantomime was fantastic and so was all of the other feedback and reviews.

Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre added: “Sian is a fantastic performer and she was a pleasure to have at the theatre.”

Freebrough Academy look forward to hearing more about Sian’s journey and wish her luck for the future in her dancing career. It is clear to see that Sian will go far and we hope that this experience opens the door for Sian, to a whole new world…
