The Scottish Panto (or Wee Jock and the Magic Dagger)

It’s Panto time!

For 2017, we have a fabulous first – a brand new Panto, never before seen, and your chance to be part of history by seeing it.

The Scottish Panto (or Wee Jock and the Magic Dagger)

In this year’s thrilling Panto, Wee Jock is part of the local Scottish community. That is, until his busking bagpipes fall apart. This tragedy sets him off on a journey to Inverness to find his Aunty Florrie McBunder 

At The Inverness Castle Hotel, Aunty Florrie McBunder keeps house for the local toff Auld Angus and his impressive but alarming wife the Auld Lady. Things are not quite what they seem …

Jock soon embarks on a daring quest for the magic dagger involving haggis hunts, wicked witches, missing troosers and a dancing forest. 

Will Jock find the magic dagger?   Will the missing troosers be found?   What is a dancing forest?

You’ll have to see the show to find out!
