Saw the pantomime on Hogmany and still laughing! Just keeps getting better every year! Hope the comic brilliance of Elaine c smith, Jordan young and Alan mchugh continues for many more years, what a team! Comic brilliance! My kids and husband loved it too!

Unfortunately I have to disagree with other reviews, though it was entertaining, I must say it was not the best performance I have seen from Elaine and cast (I have seen every pantomime theme they have performed in Aberdeen). During the performance this year I observed quite a few Children become scared and had to leave with their parents and not return.

I think this was a very good production, but unfortunately a bit more 'PG' than 'U'. My 3 year old was so scared (shaking) by the end of the first half, we weren't able to stay for the second part. The culmination were two particular scenes that link which; have a very loud roar of the Beast, a heated arguement between the two main characters, the bad witch, and then the Kraken. All with little or no light relief, and all a bit too much (unfortunately) for our little girl. We all know the story gets better after that, and it's probably the darkest part of the script, but for a show 'for all ages', it went just a little too far on this occasion.

Had a wonderful evening at this years panto. Not only did my 4 year old love it, my mum in her 50's said it was the most she had laughed in years. Well done to all the cast, another fantastic panto

A Play, a Pie and a Pint: 'Auntie Agatha Comes To Tea' George Milne @ The Lemon Tree

Damien and Martin are brothers who do not see very much of their elderly Aunt Agatha. But the business is in difficulties. Agatha has wisdom, experience, and money. It’s the money that they want to focus on. Expecting to inherit her cash, and not too enthusiastic about the wait, it is decided the time is right to invite her round for a “ fly cup.” They have also bought some poison. At the visit, revelations unfold, attitudes change, consciences rise and sink, and refreshments are served. Nothing will be the same after Auntie Agatha comes to tea.
