**** “A perfectly rounded pantomime with up-to-the minute song choices and… strong topicality.” The Stage
**** “in this fine version by Johnny McKnight… told with panache and passion born of the age of Instagram and Botox… an all-dancing torrent of glitter, happiness, and festive fun.” The Scotsman
Written by Johnny McKnight – Directed by Julie Ellen
Things are not going well down in Stirling Stella – Maw Goose is being threatened with eviction from her Dance Academy for not paying Panto Tax; eldest son Jack is missing ballet class because he’s fallen for new pupil Jill and youngest son Gary is too busy forming his own band with Bo Peep and Little Jack Horner to notice that the evil Narcissa has plans to steal the family’s beloved Lucy the Goosey. The only person that can save the day is the lovely Fairy Liqui-Tap, but she’s only a learner fairy and is struggling to pass her Higher Grade in Fairy Technology.
Will Maw Goose manage to pay those bills and still have enough spare change to afford some cut-price Botox? Will Jack and Jill manage to get down safely from the hill when they fetch that pail of water? And will the evil Narcissa’s plan to have Goose for her Christmas dinner succeed?
