The panto season. It's in front of you

IT's panto season in Glasgow and every theatre has been getting ready for the big run of shows and the annual festive on stage capers.

The city has been home to many legends of panto from Stanley Baxter and Jack Milroy and Rikki Fulton and in recent years lost one of its favourites with the premature death of Gerard Kelly.

The big theatres are offering some well established panto names with new talent making a breakthrough as well to entertain audiences in a gruelling run through December and January.

Panto is unique in bringing families, friends and community groups together in a day out of fun and laughter and adds to community spirit.

As our guide today shows those living outside the city can enjoy the same coming together at one of the many local pantos in village theatres and town halls as well as or instead of the trip to the city centre theatres.

So wherever you are you are never too far away from the chance to boo the baddie and joining in the slapstick that makes pantomime special for all ages.

Our list of shows give you all the info you need on where to go for festive frolics and laughter at venues big and small in and around the city.

Oh yes it does.
