By Patrick Barnham

Gary: Tank Commander will be entertaining Aberdonians at His Majesty’s Theatre this festive season as he joins the cast of this year’s pantomime Sleeping Beauty.

Gary joins panto dame extraordinaire Alan McHugh as Nurse Nellie Macduff, comic actor and River City Star Paul J Corrigan as Slimeball and Aberdeen’s own Danielle Jam who
returns this year as The Spirit of Pantomime.

Aberdeen Performing Arts Director of Programming and Creative Projects, Ben Torrie said: “We are pure buzzing to say Hiya to Gary and give him a huge HMT welcome this festive
season alongside our beloved Dame, Alan McHugh, our favourite cheeky chappie PJ Corrigan and the fabulous Danielle Jam.

“There is nowhere more magical than His Majesty’s
Theatre in panto season and we can’t wait to see what this amazing cast have in store.”

Sleeping Beauty is staged by Crossroads Pantomimes, the world’s biggest pantomime producer, led by Michael Harrison and the creative team behind last year’s production of The
Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan.

Michael Harrison said: “We’re announcing a stellar comedy line-up for our HMT Aberdeen panto today, guaranteed to provide laughs for all the family. Gary: Tank Commander will bring his own trademark comic talent to the panto, alongside the faces Aberdeen audiences love so much, including Alan McHugh, Paul J Corrigan and Danielle Jam.”
