Current creative director, Ian Grieve will direct Perth Theatre’s panto Aladdin and the company’s touring production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman in February. Funding cuts in recent years have lead to a decline in the number of in-house productions with a greater reliance on touring shows. The theatre is scheduled for a major redevelopment and fund-raising efforts have secured half of the £13 million target.
