Who needs a hot water bottle to keep those winter blues at bay when you have a tip-top panto cast in town?

Spotlight Musical Theatre Group’s latest panto offering Camelot proved to be the perfect winter warmer when its cast of many took to Oban’s Corran Halls stage last week.

With all the traditional ingredients of a pantomime, this production was not to be booed at – except when the baddies loomed large.

Colourful costumes and imaginative backdrops set the scene for this magical family-friendly show setting sparks flying – quite literally.

The song and dance routines were well-rehearsed, pitch and foot perfect, the choreography in particular was tight and well-timed. Smiles were wide, slapstick comedy and cheesy jokes did not disappoint.

To put on five full-on shows bringing laughter and merriment for so many people of all ages over four days shows tremendous commitment from this energetic band of troubadours and deserves a huge round of applause.

Roll on next year’s panto, I’m looking forward to it already – Oh yes, I am!
