Performances on two nights. although even then it was twice nightly, as it is now, but for six days. Always fully sold out. In those days, 1953, the performances were at The Picture House, Mid Street, Fraserburgh. The Picture House has long gone. Now the Panto is at Dalrymple Hall.
So 60 years of putting on a Panto.
Apologies for poor quality photo, but you get the picture!
The attendees tonight met at the Lighthouse Museum for Secret Santa gifts to be exchanged.
I was pleasantly surprised.
Then it was off to the 'Himalayan Tandoori'! In Fraserburgh!
Who is that little old lady? Only one with wine to drink? Ha!
Gorgeous food and company.
Then on to the Panto.
It was wonderful. Although I have to say having memories of the original story, NOT the Disney effort, I did find it difficult to follow. But we had the Dame, the female lead who was female and the male lead who was male, bit of a break in tradition there? The Dancers were fantastic, and no near nudity either. A really professional production. Price of ticket ? £7.00.
Today. The DP made some very interesting mince pies.
Me - down the shed . Producing a very unChristmassy Ostrich painting.
Unless you are having a very large bird in the oven?
Oh no we are not.
