Prince Charming @ Perth Theatre

Prince Charming @ Perth Theatre

Written by Jenny Worton
Designed and directed by Ross MacKay 

Fine today … can’t get out of bed tomorrow. That was three months ago. I’ve been in these pants ever since.

It’s a lot of pressure being Prince Charming. There’s all those dragons to fight and kingdoms to save, not to mention being charming all the time. It’s enough to make anyone a little worried.

Holed up in his bed, Prince Charming is making a list of his worries – from being struck by lightning or getting stuck in quicksand to the problem of his unfortunate name. Somebody needs to come to our Prince’s rescue.

This new musical is funny, endearing and suitable for anyone who’s ever felt a bit anxious.

Age guidance: 6+

Approx running time: 1hr

Turn of the Screw @ Perth Concert Hall

Turn of the Screw @ Perth Concert Hall

‘I don’t save or shield them. It’s as bad as
I feared – they’re lost’

1840. A young governess agrees to look after two orphaned children in Bly, a seemingly idyllic country house. But shortly after her arrival, she realises that they are not alone. There are others – the ghosts of Bly’s troubled past. The Governess will risk everything to keep the children safe, even if it means giving herself up to The Others. Years later, confronted by the past she is compelled to account for what actually happened to her and the innocents under her protection.

This new adaptation of Henry James’ iconic tale, which was the original inspiration for Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black, is a masterclass in stage-craft, with captivating performances, deliciously atmospheric set and lighting design and an evocative soundtrack, starring Janet Dibley (Doctors, EastEnders, The Two of Us) and Maggie McCarthy (Dancing on the Edge, Call the Midwife).

Pitlochry Festival Theatre: Saba Douglas-Hamilton - A Life with Elephants @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre | Scotland | United Kingdom

Join Saba Douglas-Hamilton, the highly acclaimed elephant conservationist and BBC wildlife TV presenter of This Wild Life and Big Cat Diaries for an evening of exciting animal stories and intimate behind-thescenes tales of her life in Kenya.

Saba was born in the Great Rift Valley in Kenya and met her first wild elephant when she was just six weeks old, one of 400 living in the Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania that her father, Iain Douglas-Hamilton, was studying.

She has worked for Save The Rhino Trust in Namibia, the National Museums of Kenya and Save The Elephants and whilst working in the Samburu National Reserve she was approached by the BBC. The rest, as they say, is television history!

This event will include a Q&A session.

This truly magical story, ‘The Call of the Loon Bird’ follows the life journey of Little Eagle from a small boy to adult through adversity, illness and later success as a storyteller. In his youth, he rescues a ‘Loon’, a bird of great wisdom, who later helps him on his own journey through life.

The Call of the Loon Bird is a story of wisdom over intolerance and explores the stories and culture of the Native Americans.

This show uses a mix of rod and shadow puppetry and can be enjoyed on many different levels of understanding, as Clydebuilt Puppets combine storytelling, drama, puppetry and live music in a magical experience for children aged 5 – 12 years (and adults too).

Running time 50 minutes.

Firmly established as one of Scotland’s leading touring puppet companies, Clydebuilt has been touring the length and breadth of the UK since 1987 and has also taken shows to China and Dubai.
