Tickets may have been cheaper but I'd happily have paid more if I'd not had to sit folded up !!! I'm... More

Expertly written as usual by Alan McHugh this years panto was as good as it gets with Elaine C Smith and the whole team.

The Panto in Aberdeen starring Elaine C Smith is almost an annual event for us and this year was no exception, as it was one of the best we have seen.

Went to Peter Pan today to the matinee performance of the panto. Absolutely surrounded by children from various schools throughout the region and they did their Mums and Dads proud from beginning to end! A very beautiful theatre which is always a pleasure to visit. The 3D section was fantastic and they managed to absolutely terrify every child in the... More

Went up from Glasgow to see Peter Pan on Tuesday afternoon show, it was fantastic and the 3D effects are superb, the rendition of 12 days of Christmas was the funniest thing I have seen in years! Great show worth the money.
