The Elf Who Slept-in and Missed Christmas

Kapow Theatre Scotland Presents The Elf Who Slept-In and Missed Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even an ELF?!
Elfie was sleeping, as all elves should be
When Santa left gifts beneath Christmas trees.
The only problem being, when morning did come,
Elfie was sleeping and scratching his NOSE!
When Boxing Day came and the elves went to play,
Elfie, still snoring, had missed Christmas Day!

Will Elfie's Christmas be saved? Will it all be OK?

Come see the show and help save the day!

SLLC and NCL present Beauty and the Beast

The Traditional Fairytale

Our family panto returns to Rutherglen.

After refusing to marry the evil Witch Queen - Deadly Nightshade, the arrogant Prince Sebastian has been cursed to live as a hideous beast unless he can find a maiden to fall in love with him. Not only that, the Prince’s castle and servants have been cursed to remain in limbo until the curse is broken.

Our panto dame Betty Blumenthal, and hapless son Boabby, along with their best friend, the beautiful Belle, arrive on holiday with nowhere to stay. Old Angus, the Beast’s loyal manservant thinks that Belle might just be the one to break the curse, and invites them to stay… whilst having romantic designs on Betty.

Will Nightshade’s werewolves succeed in keeping everyone prisoner in the castle… whilst keeping visitors at bay?

Will Belle break the curse in time?

Will the Beast learn some manners and charm Belle?

Join our evil witch, our cursed prince, our fairytale princess, our dopey dame, her stupid son, and a castle full of enchanted prisoners, on a roller coaster ride of thrills and spills, to cheer the goodies and boo the baddies and discover if love will win the day.
