Pav­il­ion The­atre

In a bold move, the pow­ers that be at the Pav­il­ion have thrown out the panto rule book this year, mov­ing away from tra­di­tional tales to a Christ­mas- in­spired show.

Star­ring lo­cal tal­ent, River City stars Leah MacRae and Gary La­mont, the fam­ily-friendly show also boasts a line-up in­clud­ing panto leg­end Dean Park and the bril­liant Johnny Mac as Elfie the Selfie.

The tale it­self is quirky, fol­low­ing an un­likely band of he­roes in their quest to find their fairy friend cap­tured by evil panto bad­dies, Hank and Marvin.

Castlemilk’s finest, Gary La­mont is amaz­ing as the dame, Nanny Nae Non­sense, a vi­sion in glit­ter make-up and out­ra­geous cos­tumes.

Fel­low River City star Leah MacRae skil­fully takes on the role of bad­die Hank, strik­ing the per­fect bal­ance of boos and laughs for au­di­ence.

Our four- year- old daugh­ter, Sarah, was cap­ti­vated by the whole show. The glit­ter, the lights, the songs...what more could a girl ask for?

Choc-a-block full of slap­stick and non­sense, stand- out mo­ments in­clude the hi­lar­i­ous bed scene and a laugh-out-loud Glas­gow version of the 12 Days of Christ­mas which in­cluded five lavvy rolls, two fitba tops and a bra that was made to fit three (yes, really).

All in all, the Pav­il­ion’s panto is as fam­ily-friendly and fes­tive­filled as they get.

Bah Hum­bugs beware, you’ll step into Christ­mas at this show and will be wowed by a win­ter won­der­land. Four stars Runs un­til Jan­uary 17

Let It Snow! The cast at the Pav­il­ion enjoy a win­ter won­der­land
