Santa isn’t the only one making special deliveries for Christmas – as His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen is giving away 300 tickets to their spectacular panto Beauty and the Beast to local community groups and charities.
Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA), the company which runs the theatre, and the producers of the show, Qdos Entertainment, are inviting groups to apply for the tickets through an application form on APA’s website by Monday, November 10.
The successful groups will be allocated tickets to panto performances on Sunday, November 30 or Tuesday, December 2.
And their youngsters will enjoy a trip to HMT to see the spectacular Beauty and the Beast, starring Elaine C Smith as Mrs Potty, Alan McHugh as Dame Kitty Brewster, Jordan Young as Boabby Brewster, Anne Smith as the Wicked Witch, Luke Newton as Prince Sebastian/The Beast and Maggie Lynne as Belle.
The show is being staged by the same team behind the theatre’s last seven Box Office-busting pantomimes, with lavish sets, fabulous costumes, and an abundance of comedy.
"We are delighted to be able to offer tickets for Beauty and the Beast to community groups who might not otherwise get to see the panto,” said APA chief executive Jane Spiers.
“The HMT panto is a great Christmas tradition for a lot of people, and for many children it is their first experience of live theatre - we would like to share that magical excitement with as many as we can.”
Application forms can be downloaded by clicking the link on the following page, or are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. They must be in before Monday, November 10, marked FREE PANTO TICKETS and the successful groups will be told by Monday, November 17.
Unfortunately, due to the anticipated high level of applications, unsuccessful applicants will not be notified.
