The Edinburgh Fringe Festival will come to Fraserburgh next month with a show that will have kids bubbling with excitement.

Entertainers The Puppet Gang will perform their Fringe piece The Nutty Professor and his Amazing Magic Bubble Show at Fraserburgh Academy on October 1.

Performed by husband and wife team Tim and Aileen Mottram the show will fuses a panto format with bubble fun.

Aileen said: “It’s a unique fun-filled vibrant interactive family show for adults and children of all ages.

“The Nutty Professor accompanied by his assistant Miss Squeakybottom deliver a spectacular family Panto-style bubble show laced through a storyline of comedy and amazing magic.”

Centred around The Nutty Professor who has arrived from Bubble Land with Bubble Lab the show puts on a display of just about every type of bubble imaginable.

Aileen said: “Square bubbles, fog-filled bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, and unbelievably the Professor uses a magic bubble to levitate his magician’s silk cloth around the stage.

“The Nutty Professor’s creation of the world famous Loch Ness Monster using bubbles and bespoke puppets, with Nessie rising from the Loch with her tartan bonnet on, astounds everyone with amazing special effects and heart-stirring Scottish music.”

During the show children in the audience are even placed inside giant bubbles.

The show will be performed at Fraserburgh Academy Assembly Hall on Saturday October 1 from 2.30 pm to 3.30 pm with doors opening at 2 pm.

Tickets are available at the door and cost £7 each.

The Broch show forms part of the sell-out Fringe show’s Scottish Tour.
