***** Prepare to shed tears of mirthful joy… crammed with adorable mischief and good-natured fun and all delivered with unstinting generosity by seven performers determined to give audiences a great night out” The Herald

***** Even the slightly less sentimental would be hard pushed to not find an abundance of joy in this pantomime which is filled to the brim with brains, courage and heart.” Broadway World

***** “Impeccable… A rare treat…” The Stage

**** “Sheer cheek, swagger and boundless creativity… delivering some of the best winter fun – for adults as well as kids – in 21st Century Scottish panto land.” The Scotsman

***** “The perfect pantomime experience… if you want to know how to do a proper panto? Get yourself to the Tron.” CorrBlimey

**** “Johnny McKnight’s irreverent and very funny panto is full of local colour and packed with put-downs… somehow the writer, director and star takes one of cinema’s most sensitive tales and makes it raucous, irreverent and very, very funny.” The Guardian

**** “The script is bursting at the seams with cultural observations and political barbs… expect the unexpected in this riotous retelling of a tale you think you know. With real heart at its core, you’ll leave with a fuzzy warmth that will keep a spring in your step til Hogmanay!” Braw Theatre

**** “McKnight is one of the greatest traditional panto dames on the stage.” The Wee Review

When a tornado rips through her home, Dorothy Blawna-Gale and her trusty dog Tronto, find themselves landed in the mystical land of Oz. To get back to their beloved home, they must embark on a treacherous and lethal journey through all sort of hilarious bampottery. On their journey they meet a scarecrow without a brain (but with 24k Insta-sham followers); a tin wummin’ without a heart (rumours that she works for the local council can’t be confirmed) and a lion who can’t help but run away from danger to the nearest fridge to hide. 

Can Dorothy and Tronto ever find their way back home?  And how on earth are we going to do a tornado scene on our budget? Only one way to find out…book your tickets for this year’s Tron-take on a classic and get ready to boo, hiss and click your heels together three times.

World Premiere – Tron Theatre – Christmas 2022
