Once upon a time, there was a panto in Lamlash but the wicked Covid witch put a stop to that along with many other things. She didn’t poison the apples but just breathed her deadly virus into the air to keep us all under control.

The people of the island were very unhappy and disappointed and some were very ill, but they could do nothing about it as the witch was very wicked and they were not allowed to meet for more two years.

This was very hard for them but they did as they were told as they were too frightened to go out as they had done before and had to wear masks everywhere.

Then one day a magic potion arrived and it was offered to everyone to protect
them from the evil spell. Time passed and, as in every good fairytale, everything slowly started to return to normal and the people started to get their lives back.

This was a great time for celebration and everyone longed for things to be as they used to be, so it was decided that a good pantomime would be just the thing to help with this…so we are back.

Starting on Thursday December 8, we will be treading the boards again at the community theater in Lamlash to bring you our version of ‘Snow White and the 7 Oddities’ amongst all the other oddities.

We hope you will be up for joining us and look forward to welcoming everyone back to our Arran pantomime.

Watch out for posters with dates, times and ticket sales details which will be on sale from the Book and Card Center in Brodick from Monday November 28.

Hope to see you all back having a great time and getting into the Christmas spirit – no Trevor, not that one.

You know you all want to!
