The pop­u­lar chil­dren’s show, Room on the Broom, flies into Hamil­ton Town House in Fe­bru­ary.

With two shows adapted for the stage from the best-sell­ing book by Chil­dren’s Lau­re­ate Ju­lia Don­ald­son and Axel Sch­ef­fler, it takes the au­di­ence on a spell­bind­ing ad­ven­ture.

From the creators of The Gruf­falo this show is a mag­i­cal, mu­si­cal de­light for chil­dren aged three plus.

Love me Tin­der is a heart-warm­ing tale of friend­ship, mu­sic, love, laugh­ter and dat­ing, and you can catch it at the Town House on Fe­bru­ary 19.

It fea­tures an all-star cast of May Miller, Michelle McManus, Cat Har­vey, Liam Dolan, An­drew Agnew, Johnny Mac and Joanna Kaczyn­ska. Three Glaswe­gian work col­leagues and pals em­bark on in­ter­net dat­ing for the first time with hi­lar­i­ous con­se­quences.

Find out how love­able girls get on, from cre­at­ing their match-mak­ing pro­files to speed dat­ing and dis­cov­er­ing the joys and per­ils of swip­ing right to avoid be­ing left on the shelf.

Their mates Big Davie and Ryan of­fer the of­ten side-split­ting male per­spec­tive, while Cupid fae Cum­ber­nauld is work­ing his magic qui­etly in the back­ground.

As the panto sea­son draws to a close there is still time left to catch Aladdin at Mother­well Theatre.

The suc­cess­ful show ex­tended its run, giv­ing pan­tolovers ex­tra time to fit it into their fes­tive hol­i­day break.

Spillers Pan­tomimes will be per­form­ing Aladdin un­til Sun­day, Jan­uary 13, with all the tra­di­tional panto in­gre­di­ents.

Packed full of fam­ily fun, there will be laugh-out­loud com­edy, spec­tac­u­lar sets and cos­tumes and even some 3D ac­tion.

Join Aladdin on an ad­ven­ture from rags to riches, with a fly­ing car­pet and a wish-grant­ing ge­nie, as he woos the princess and tries to es­cape an evil sor­cerer.

The pan­tomime is pro­duced and di­rected by Spillers Pan­tomimes, and pro­duc­tion di­rec­tor Bev Ber­ridge said: “Spillers are re­turn­ing for our 13th year to pro­duce the pan­tomime at Mother­well Theatre. “Ev­ery year is dif­fer­ent, and this year is no ex­cep­tion. “We have a mag­i­cal fly­ing car­pet, which is rather spec­tac­u­lar and have also in­tro­duced a fan­tas­tic 3D el­e­ment, so the au­di­ence can feel like part of the pro­duc­tion.”

Mother­well Con­cert Hall venue man­ager Craig Smart added: “We are de­lighted to have Mother­well Shop­ping Cen­tre on board as this year’s spon­sor.

“The shop­ping cen­tre is an in­te­gral part of the local area, and as the panto has be­come in­grained in local tra­di­tion, it was an ob­vi­ous choice.

“We are also grate­ful to have the sup­port of Arts & Busi­ness Scot­land through the Cul­ture & Busi­ness Fund Scot­land.

“The sup­port of both par­ties has al­lowed us to make this year’s panto even big­ger and bet­ter than pre­vi­ous years.”

Tick­ets can be booked by call­ing 01698 403120.
