Glasgow Life’s community touring panto returns with Mother Goose

Glasgow Life’s community touring pantomime is gearing up for a welcome return this festive season, with a run of performances of Mother Goose promising entertainment for the full family.

The fun-filled and low-priced shows (£3/2), delivered by Glasgow Life Arts, will help to spread Christmas cheer across the city when the cast hit the road, bound for nine community venues between 30 November and 16 December.

Mother Goose will give audiences from Barlanark to Knightswood and Castlemilk to Maryhill the chance to experience the joy of the circus, featuring its golden egg-laying central character, her feisty daughter Ginny and Carlo the Clown.

Offering laughs and sing-alongs aplenty, the run of 15 shows has something for panto-goers of all ages, not least plenty of opportunities to get into the Christmas spirit by cheering on the good guys – led by Fairy Fortune – and booing the baddie Diavolo as the gang try to save Mother Goose’s circus.

Glasgow Life’s community panto has been bringing Christmas cheer and high-quality theatre to the places where people live at prices they can afford since staging its first show in 2009. In previous years, the tour has put a unique spin on family favourites such as Aladdin, Cinderella, Dick Whittington and Sleeping Beauty.

Mari Binnie, Glasgow Life Arts Producer, said: “We can’t wait to bring our community touring pantomime, Mother Goose, to venues across Glasgow. The cast and crew have put in the rehearsal hours to create a wonderful show which all the family can enjoy. As ever, local venues and communities have been incredibly welcoming in hosting our professional actors and creative team.”

Glasgow Life’s production of Mother Goose is written by Alan McHugh and adapted and directed by Julie Brown, with musical direction from Karen MacIver. See the full schedule and ticketing information here.
