Although going to the theatre can’t happen this year, we are excited to announce we are bringing a filmed version of our 2015 panto Puss in Boots by Ben Crocker to the Oban Phoenix Cinema on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December.
Puss in Boots tells the tale of penniless Jack Miller and his faithful cat, Puss. Jack falls for the beautiful Princess Esmerelda but the wicked ogre Grimgrab has plans to wed her himself. He employs the services of bad fairy Pernicia to oversee her kidnapping by Jack’s hapless brothers Jasper and Jethro. Luckily Pernicia’s sister, the good fairy Priscilla, is never far away to ensure things don’t get too out of hand. Attempting to help, but often unknowingly hindering Jack and Puss, are Queen Wendy, King Wally and Bobbie the Royal Page.
Panto regulars Roddy MacEachan, Kevin Baker, Morven Wright and Fran Melville share the stage with a 30-strong talented cast including Stephen Glen-Lee as the King, John Robinson as Jasper, Richard Baker as Jack with Nicole O’Brien as Princess Esmerelda, Aimie Baker and Ellie Cooper as the good and bad fairies, David Johnston as Grimbag, Stevo Finlayson as Bobbie and Sue Baker as our fearless talking cat who knows how to rock a pair of boots!
Will Puss save the day from a cat-astrophe? Showings are at 2.30pm on Saturday 12th Dec and 1pm and 4.30pm on Sunday 13th Dec. All tickets cost £2 and are available from www.obanphoenix.com (social distanced seating system in place). Don’t miss out, get your tickets now for a purrfect festive treat.
