Tickets are still available for Lochaber Showstoppers’ latest pantomime, The Swan Princess, which takes to the stage in Ballachulish for three nights starting this evening (Thursday December 5).

The gang promise their usual mix of song, dance, West End pizazz and the oldest, corniest jokes in town.

A loose retelling of Tchaikovsky’s ballet, Swan Lake, with a considerably less flexible cast, The Swan Princess has been written by former member Ryan Laskey and will be performed in Ballachulish Village Hall tonight, tomorrow and in two performances on Saturday.

Tickets are available from The Quarry Centre, Ballachulish, The Granite House, Fort William or on the door. Doors open 6.30pm, curtain up 7pm (Saturday matinee 2pm).

The show’s director, Sheena Coull, told us: ‘The gang’s been working really hard whether they’re learning lines, sewing costumes, designing sets and lighting or a million other jobs.

‘We’re really enjoying getting together and rehearsing and I can honestly say we’re going to have a show fit for the West End! Of Ballachulish’.
