Ho, ho, ho. I cannot resist the Christmas pantos – a fabulous festive Glasgow tradition. Every theatre from the smallest to the large offers something whether you’re 3 or 93.
A new take on Cinderella from the ugly step-sisters’ viewpoint is sure to delight. The Uglies, written and featuring the excellent Davey Anderson, is at Oran Mor from 2-21 December.
Slapstick, songs and an elf
The Citizen’s brand new show Bauble Trouble is packed full of laughs, slapstick and songs when Dad tries to get the tree up before Santa arrives.
And when Christmas loathing Carol finds a lost elf under her bed looking for Santa, side-splitting antics begin. Don’t miss the mesmorising The Night Before Christmas at the Arches from 4 December to 5 January.
Sweet smelling panto
The Tron’s Peter Panto and the Incredible Stinkerbell features a comedic love triangle or check out the Citizens’ recreated Jungle Book with favourites Mowgli and Baloo. Both are for ages 6 and up.
With all this choice there is no excuse not to indulge – it’s behind you, in front of you and all around you. But book soon because shows are selling out. Oh no they’re not…oh yes they are. So don’t delay.
