Plockton Amateur Dramatic Society has put on its third pantomime.
The club was revived in 2013 after a break of a number of years, and this year members put on The Snow Queen, starring Sue Atkinson in the title role and Greg Dobson as Granny McGonagall.
The Plockton Amateur Dramatic Society and its youth section, Plockton Amateur Dramatic Youth Society (PADYS), came together for this year’s performance with 18 children and 10 adults in the cast and youngsters sharing parts across the performances.
During the performance the Snow Queen steals young Kai so she can marry him and rule both the Kingdom of Ice and the Kingdom of Men. Granny and her friends, including Jack Frost and a troll, make the treacherous journey to save him.
The club put on four performances over three days with proceeds going back in to help pay for costumes, scenery and props for competitive productions, as well as helping with travel expenses for competitions and buying laptops and T-shirts for the youth section.
Sarah Bruce from the society said: ‘This year we have had to have extensive repairs done to our storage barn and meeting room which have cost us a lot of money, so we’re hoping this will be successful enough to put us back in a financial comfort zone.’
