NEWS: PANTO KING JOHNNY McKNIGHT RETURNS FOR MAMMY GOOSE AT THE TRON
It’s almost panto time at the Tron Theatre and they have announced that their 2018 pantomime MAMMY GOOSE (27 Nov ’18 – 6 Jan ’19) is once again written by, directed by and starring the undisputed king of panto Johnny McKnight. sponsors.
Johnny McKnight is sure to dazzle and delight as Mammy Goose, a hard-working café owner who has always had big dreams of glittering Hollyrood parties and hob-knobbing with the Scottish elite like The Krankies and Sean Batty. As for her son Jack, well, he’s in love and is considering leaving the family business! Even though her dreams have gone down the pan (the frying pan) and her life is less Debbie McGhee and more McGhee’s the Bakers, at least she can rely on her best friend Lucy who just happens to be a 6ft talking goose.
When a mysterious stranger makes her an offer- the chance to be young again, Mammy Goose has the opportunity to start her life over. But, there’s a catch. In order to be granted her wish she must trade in her beloved goose! Will Mammy Goose choose eternal youth over friendship and love (seems to have worked out okay for Kim Kardashian, hasn’t it)? Will Jack and his new pal Will dare to climb that hill together and see what’s up there? Will Lucy the Goosey taste better with BBQ or plum sauce? There’s only one way to find out in this year’s rip-rollicking panto MAMMY GOOSE.
MAMMY GOOSE is designed by Kenny Miller, with original tunes by Musical Director Ross Brown. Festive favourites Darren Brownlie, Julie Wilson Nimmo, Ryan Ferrie and Lauren Ellis Steele are back and will be joined some new faces including Duncan Brown and Lorna McMillan for yet another unmissable all-singing, all-dancing, irreverent, gallus, festive extravaganza.
