*There will be two shows on Saturday 16th (1pm and 3pm), and on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd (also 1pm and 3pm).
Oran Mor is delighted to announce that A Play A Pie and A Pint is reviving that much loved tradition of yesteryear – the Summer Panto!
The script and songs are by Dave Anderson and David MacLennan and the all-star cast is Juliet Cadzow, Cora Bissett, John Kielty and Dave Anderson. Join them for a great family entertainment – suitable for broad-minded children of all ages.
We are on a Heritage Cruise going “Doon the Watter” aboard the Paddle Steamer Waverley. The year is 2011, but the organisers, “Big Society Arts” (a charitable organisation, slogan – “Coming down to your level”) want to take us back to the 1950s, or ‘40s or ‘30s. Depression? What Depression? Nonsense! They’re laying on this trip down Memory Lane, for free, for disadvantaged families.
Join Granny and the weans, Darren and Blondie as they head for Largs
to the strains of the Dixieland jazz band. Marvel at the Children’s Entertainer, whom we might suspect is just a wee bit drunk, and whose act is a tribute to the forgotten skills of the end-of-the-pier artiste. He is doing a “3 Bears” routine involving puppets, but, since he has only two hands and three puppets….. Will Granny drift off into a dream of her childhood doon the watter when the Clyde Coast was Benidorm in the rain? Meet Goldilocks, the three bears and a host of other Panto characters in that world where a Knickerbocker Glory at Nardini’s knocked Spanish Tapas into a Pokey Hat.
