Mamma Mia! It’s Singin’ In The Rain

From dancing in an Italian Summer to Singin’ in the Scottish Rain!

Walking around Pitlochry in-between rehearsals for Singin’ In The Rain at Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Aaron Ashley Parker may be forgiven for pinching himself.

After all, it’s been a whirlwind year for the talented performer, culminating of course, in landing a role in PFT’s festive musical spectacular, which has drawn a stellar cast of performers from West End stage, TV and film. Including Aaron, who joins the cast fresh from filming Mamma Mia 2! Here We Go Again at Shepperton Studios, London.

Aaron tells us, “I started filming Mamma Mia 2 in August this year. I'm a featured dancer in the movie and we started on location in the Oxford countryside and Oxford University, filming with actress Lily James [Cinderella, Downton Abbey] and director Ol Parker [screenplays for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel films].”

Aaron then joined the entire Mamma Mia 2 cast at the London studios in October, for the film’s end sequence, working with Meryl Streep, Dame Julie Walters, Christine Baranski, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Lily James, Andy Garcia and Cher.

Aaron adds, “Dancing with the one and only Cher was an incredible experience! I was overwhelmed with talented actors and dancers, and got to work with the wonderful choreographer Anthony Van Laast [Beauty And The Beast, Mamma Mia].”

Singin’ In The Rain opens on Friday 1 December and runs until 23 December. Most matinées have already sold out, plus many more performances have limited capacity. So, if you’ve been looking forward to your festive, feel-good injection, but not booked yet, don’t delay! Call our Box Office team on 01796 484626 or click here to book online.
