Currie High pupil Katie Kedslie knew she had to get off the stage of the King’s Theatre as quickly as possible if she were to avoid the ultimate embarrassment.

A student dancer at the time, and mid-way through one of the Leven Street panto’s big dance numbers she had felt an ominous pop moments earlier.

Laughing, as she recall the moment, the 21-year-old who is currently making her professional debut in Aladdin at The King’s, recalls, “The ensemble were doing this big dance number and my under-skirt unclasped itself as I was dancing... I could feel it slipping down.

“I just thought, ‘Oh dear, I need to get to get off-stage quick’, so I ran off into the wings.”
