Synopsis:
Saturday nights are all right for many things - fightin', lovin', losin', gettin', havin', holdin'. From dance hall to disco, from cradle to rave, the prospects of that ever elusive "good time" has filled many a lost weekend with hopes destined to be dashed by bad timing and even worse karma.

An inspired modern version of the story, given a fine momentum by Crackjaw the witch, a ferocious hate-mongering villainess.

The audience participation rages fast and furious. . .' Scotsman

King Of The Fields

Stuart Paterson
A play set in Ayrshire after the First World War, with touches of Ibsen - from the acclaimed Scottish playwright. Matt has returned from life on the road, haunted by his experience of the trenches. For sixteen years, his brother Rob has broken his back to build a haulage business in a tough rural community. He has married Catherine, a restless city girl, who shows an unsettling interest in the new arrival. Driven by birthright and rivalry, the two brothers are drawn into a remorseless life-or-death struggle for control of the business - and of Catherine. With its isolated setting, its action set in train by an unexpected arrival and its impassioned characters whose strong feelings run deep beneath their words, King of the Fields has a strength reminiscent of the plays of Ibsen.

Princess And The Goblin, The

Stuart Paterson
Wisely and with great skill, Paterson has adjusted the original tale. Princess Irene is old enough to become the wife of gruesome Goblin Prince Krankl. . . and the sweetheart of miner's son, Curdie. She is young enough to need a bossy nurse, Lottie, and to go squidgy over a Paterson-import, a dragon name d Fannon. And she is just the right age to respond to the magic of the loving, shimmering, enigmatic Lady. . . Paterson is a quite unrivalled talent within the theatre.' Herald

Puss In Boots

Synopsis:
Magic, comedy, glitter, goodies, baddies and a true-hearted hero triumphing over adversity. . . But this being a Stuart Paterson show, most of the cheesier trad-panto fixtures are dispensed with in favour of strong narrative momentum and pawky vernacular humour. . . The story follows the adventures of Rab, the youngest of a mill-owner's three orphaned sons, after their mother's will leaves the mill to his two shiftless, bullying brothers and him nothing but her love and the company of her cat. Setting off to seek his fortune he soon discovers - of course - that this is no ordinary cat, especially not once they have defeated the evil witch and Puss has purloined her magnificent, re-sequinned magic boots. . . Puss is of course Catherine in disguise and Rab, though he didn't realise it at the time, has loved Catherine all along.' Metro.

Snow Queen, The

Synopsis:
Drawn from Hans Christian Andersen, this is 'possibly the finest new children's play of the last decade, now increasingly popular as a Christmas show everywhere. . . The Snow Queen, with her cruel plan to freeze the world forever through her control of the boy Kay, becomes more than a symbol of emotional coldness and evil. She is a perverter of nature itself; and little Gerda, in her brave journey to the Ice Palace at the top of the world, can therefore draw on the help of all the forces of nature, from the sunspirit Bhima to the birds and the animals of the forest, the lovely reindeer that carries her to Spitzbergen, and even the polar bears guarding the Snow Queen's palace' Guardian

Among the crew, the one-legged Long John Silver becomes his greatest friend - but Silver has a shocking secret in store, and when they reach their destination, Jim faces danger and adventure greater than he could ever have imagined. Script includes production notes with ideas for casting and staging the play. Suitable for young people to watch and perform.
