No doubt we can look forward to a gushing write-up from County Hall's Ministry of Truth later this week about the grand opening of Llanelli's new theatre, where the curtain rose on a production of Aladdin starring Denny Twp.
front row was occupied by the council's top brass, and stomachs churned
as the cast, led by the evergreen Mr Twp, broke off from the slapstick
to heap praise on the Best Council in Wales.
Apparently some less respectful members of the audience were heard to mumble "Oh no it isn't!"
The choice of Aladdin was wise under the circumstances as it deprived the rabble of the opportunity to make coarse jokes about the Ugly Sisters (Cinderella) or the Chief Weasel (Wind in the Willows). Jack and the Beanstalk
might have been suitable, but unfortunately after all that
regrettable business with the Ombudsman and the cash cow earlier this
year, it had to be ruled out.
