TICKETS are set to go on sale later this month for this year’s Peterhead pantomime - a Doric version of Sleeping Beauty.

This year’s show will be a re-write of the popular fairytale, based in and around Peterhead itself, with half the characters in the production speaking in the Buchan dialect.

This year’s show will be a re-write of the popular fairytale, based in and around Peterhead itself, with half the characters in the production speaking in the Buchan dialect.

The new venture has been penned, directed and produced by stage stalwarts Alasdair Corbett, Chris Cameron, Jenna Rafferty and Gillian Park.

Alasdair told the Buchanie: “Rehearsals have been ongoing since September and things are going well.

“Everything is slowly coming together and the chorus this year is very strong, as are our lead characters.”

Alasdair said it was hoped that having a Doric version of panto would bring the community more into it and get them involved.

The panto runs from December 8 to 15, with shows at 7pm each evening and a 2pm matinee on the Saturday.

All tickets are priced at £7 for this year’s show - streamlined from last year’s costs of £8 and £6.

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, October 24, for block bookings. These will be taken between 7pm and 9pm at the community centre.

All other tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, October 29, at 8.30am.

Block bookings are for groups of ten or more and will only be available for the Saturday matinee or Monday to Thursday evening performances.

So get your tickets soon and avoid disappointment!
