Panto Dame Calls on Highland Perthshire to Join in Song

LISTEN: Barrie Hunter explain how to get involved in Perth Theatre’s panto performance

Perth’s Panto Dame, Barrie Hunter, and mastermind behind this year’s panto performance is asking people in Highland Perthshire to record themselves singing to end his pantomime this year.

The first 50 people to participate can claim a free ticket to the virtual broadcast of the performance if they submit a video of themselves singing the song which comes close to closing the performance.

Mr Hunter said: “We’re so excited to give our community, local and further afield, a chance to appear in this year’s show at Christmas. I had a hoot filming this video in my kitchen, and I’m sure there’s loads of folk out there who would love to have a go too so I say to everyone – go on, get involved-watch it, film yours and send it in…we can’t wait to see you all in action!!”

Oh Yes We Are! A Quest For Long Lost Light And Laughter wants to end with a giant screening of all the clips put together in harmony.

Mr Hunter even has a dance ready for the performance which he’s made a guide on the Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre website to follow.

He hopes that this will be mixed with the song as people dance along in a massive performance made up of people from across the area.

He added: “I think it’s important every year, but I think it’s incredibly important this year, what has been a very difficult year for so many people. Just to try bring a bit of levity, laughter and light into peoples lives if we can, I think we could all do with a bit of a laugh right now.

“And it would be lovely for us to be able to provide that, so don’t I think theatre’s been more important than ever, in particular, panto.”

The deadline to get involved is Tuesday 17 November but it’s very simple to get involved.
