Buoyed by its debut performance of Finale in August, Walkerburn’s Oyster Theatre is returning with a pantomime Alice in Wonderland next week.

Their production is being staged at Walkerburn Village Hall on Friday November 23 and Saturday November 24, starting each night at 7.30pm.

“We have a big cast,” writes Oyster Theatre’s Sue Tickner, “including evil Knave Alistair Moody from Tibbie Shiels Inn, and his side kick Frank Usher, both of whom will be playing live on stage,”

“There’s also a loud, brash Queen played by Jayne Levy-Young and her long suffering husband, the King, is played by Angus Wolfe-Murray. Debbie Finnerty has created a fabulous, flamboyant Dame (breaking panto tradition – this role is usually played by a male).

“Alice in Wonderland is guaranteed to be a lively, fun and entertaining evening, suitable for all ages.”

Tickets cost £7.50/£6, and are available from Walkerburn Post Office, TAVO Thrift Shop and Siobhan’s Beauty Spot, Innerleithen. Reservations by phone 01896 830040.
