From Protel to Panto..!

Date Posted:

Panto season is upon us yet again. Therefore it’s time for Protel’s resident Telephone Unit Supervisor, to bid us farewell and take to a whole new stage!

Protel’s long standing CATI supervisor, John Higgins, has temporarily left behind his CATI stage and replaced it with the world of Theatre. From between now until January 6th, John can be seen performing at the Hexagon Theatre in Reading, as Abanazar, in the Christmas Panto production of ‘Aladdin’. The Panto also stars children’s television presenter, Justin Fletcher.

After two weeks of intense rehearsals (photo below), the opening night took place last Saturday – and opened to rave reviews! John’s performance was referred to as “masterful…..with just enough evil and verve to be scary but enough of a twinkle in his eye to stop him from being a creature of nightmares...” (Phil Creighton, Wokingham .Today). We wonder if our team of CATI interviewers would provide a similar critique!

The whole team at Protel wish John all the best for his run of ‘Aladdin’. We also look forward to welcoming him back into the office in January.

In the meanwhile, your CATI projects are in very safe hands. In John’s absence throughout December, John’s highly experienced understudy is taking over the reigns!


Tickets are still available for ‘Aladdin’. For further information and ticket availability, please click here.
