Ugly Duckling at The Arches, Glasgow
Sleeping Beauty at The Citizens, Glasgow
A Christmas Carol, The Old Kirk, Kirkcaldy
At this time of year the theatres all try to draw in the family audiences. In Glasgow that is dominated by the big pantos at The Kings, The Pavilion and nowadays The Clyde Auditorium, The Tron, Cottiers and Oran Mor. Not to mention The Singing Kettle at Braehead Arena or The Nutcracker from Scottish Ballet at The Theatre Royal. As we had done panto the past couple of years and already taken the children to The Nutcracker before, we went to none of the above and STILL found plenty of Christmas family shows on the go.
Here are three reviews by my three children of what they went to see this year.
