A PANTOMIME at a Wee County school has been such a success, plans are already being made for the show in 2019.

Many "talented and enthusiastic" students took part in the production of Alloa Academy's very own Alice's Alloa Adventures over two days this month.

The now-annual spectacular was written and directed by Mr Jamie Jack, principal teacher of the creative and aesthetic subjects.

The cast came from across the whole school and performed on stage during the day and in the evening with the show enjoying the support of Alloa Academy Parent Council.

This year's pantomime was a unique take on a classic story, with a Clackmannanshire twist.

Alice is a slightly mental Sauchie lass who embarks on a journey of discovery where fantasy becomes reality.

She encounters many colourful characters, with fabulous costumes and sets on stage, as she ventures into the Wonderland Pantosphere after being lured down the rabbit hole into a world beyond the Wee County.

Carly Moultrie shone in her lead role as Alice while Ben Johnson was brilliant as Snowball Softy.

Aleah Alexander as Felicity Festivity, Tom Kay as Grandpa Claus and Amy McCandlish as Petulia Peace also put in standout performances.

Cameron Graham as Vanity Vile and Braydan Harrison as Count Tempus were full of energy too and were excellent choices to play the panto baddies – to name a few of the cast.

Mr Jack was full of praise as the performances got underway, saying: "We are so proud and the audiences have given us really positive feedback and it is a pleasure to put on such a large community event for our school.

"We are planning ahead for 2019 with the production of Peter Pants and The Muted Mermaid."

He added: "It is a pleasure once again to write, design and direct such a fun pantomime show and to work with so many talented and enthusiastic students who deserve the highest praise."

A nod of recognition also goes to fellow teachers who helped out.

Further thanks go to sponsors Morrisons, Indigo Sun, Stirling Valet Service, Margaret Jack, Lochay Homes, Thornbridge Grangemouth Garden Centre and Alloa Academy Parent Council for the support.
